What food colors can I mix to achieve a light flesh tone color for my icing?
i use ivory from wiltons and it always looks like skin tone to me.
They actually sell flesh colored gel.
I use a the tiniest amount of brown.
If you don't have the fleshtone food color, try making peach icing and adding a touch of pink, with a faint dab of brown. It works pretty good.
I was taught using copper. Just a small amount and it really looks like flesh.
I've used Wilton Ivory as a base. Then you can add very tiny amounts of pink or brown to get to the shade you need.
I use Wilton Creamy Peach with a touch of Americolor Ivory. Works like a charm for me every time.
