I would like to make the Babycakes by "Jenspin", but have had no luck finding a flesh tone paste or anything near this to color the fondant for the head. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Wilton's ivory will make a nice flesh tone. You can add a bit of peach to it if you want to. Light copper is also used often for flesh tone but I don't like it as well as the ivory, personally.

Thanks Texas_Rose! I don't have any stores near me, except for "Wally World" that doesn't even have Ivory or Peach. I will have to visit Joanns or Hobby Lobby and hope to find it there.

I've used a little pink and a small dot of black to get a flesh tone.

I've also used a dot of brown w/ pink. It just depends on thhe tone you want.

The best flesh tone I've achieved has been with a tiny, tiny drop of copper. I also find copper is great for toning down other colors (like orange for a pumpkin)getting rid of that bright neon look.I usually use Wilton colors - most easily accessed. Have fun!
