I've been asked to make a boobie cake and I'm not sure which Wilton colors to use to make the skin tone correct. It's for a caucasian guy. I know pink really doesn't look right. What would you suggest? Thanks

I used small amounts of rose and brown (both wilton colors) and I thought the color was great. You can see my female torso cake in my album if you have access to naughty cakes.

Wilton's copper works well. You can add a little pink to it also.

Touch of brown, a bare touch of orange. It really depends on the skin tone. You could also use a touch of brown, a bare touch of pink. And I really mean, a touch. You can always add more if you need it darker.

Yes, brown and pink (or peach) are the way to go! Good luck. thumbs_up.gif

I've used Wilton's copper, little drops at a time(unless they like to tan!) and it worked great for me, see my corset cake(I used IMBC for it,btw)

CK Products actually makes a "flesh" tone. I bought it last time I was at the cake supply but haven't had a chance to try it out yet.

Wilton has a flesh tone in their character colors. I know Tink, Strawberry Shortcake and Fairly Odd Parents have it in the box.

Let us know how it looks. I tend to notice the "fleshtone" colors look Elmer Fuddy. You know what I mean? icon_smile.gif

Wilton ivory, and a touch of brown works well.

I've always used Wilton copper for fleisch.
