What color do you all generally use to make flesh tone? And don't say "flesh tone" lol b/c the one I have is very coppery and looks like someone with fake-tan-in-a-can. There has to be another way.........pale pink and peach? I dunno.
Thanks if you have a suggestion.
The last time I needed flesh tone, I made ivory and light pink separately.
Then I added the pink to the ivory until I was happy.
I've used little bit of pink with a touch of brown or you can buy flesh tone color.
You may be using too much color if your flesh tone looks coppery (tan in a can! ). I use it all the time but just put barely any at all on the tip of a toothpick. Add more in teeny tiny amounts if needed. The brand I use is Cake Craft that I buy in my local cake supply store.
I use just a tiny bit of copper and it works every time.
americolor makes a flesh tone color i believe, but the suggestion here are great too.
A tiny bit of Americolor copper added to your icing makes a beautiful flesh color.
I use tiny amounts of brown, pink and yellow or orange. I learned when I was at Planet Cake that that's how they do their's. I guess it also depends what tone of skin tone you're looking for; I find straight-up white folk the easiest!
I start with Americolor Ivory and add Wilton Peach until I get it where I want it. :0)
Copper works fantastic but I have also used WIlton peach and it works like a charm.
Wilton copper works great for me, small amount though, add a tiny(tooth pick) at a time and knead/stir until you've got the color you want. Fondant also generally lightens up a bit as it's drying and bc gets more intense, especially in the fridge. Good luck!
