What colors do I mix in white fondant to obtain a "flesh" color? I live in a small rural area and do not have time to order fleshtone colorant. I am sure I can mix a couple of colors and achieve a close resemblence, correct?
TIA!

Ivory, or a small dash of copper, or flesh tone found in a few of the Wilton Character color sets.

I also use brown to obtain a flesh color.

I also use just a touch of copper.

Wilton's copper works great for me.

Getus, what colors do you have available to you?

I use a small amount of pink, then a tiny amount of brown. If it gets too dark, I just knead in some white fondant until I get the color I want.

I have yellow, gold, pink, brown gel colors, but no copper. I do have white and brown fondant. Wondering if I could mix a little of the brown fondant into the white , then perhaps add some yellow or pink if necessary?
This is a last minute cake for a coworker, or I would usually have given myself enough time to get everything I would need. I have to order most all my supplies, as I live in the sticks...LOL!

I just made a baby cake a few weeks ago. I had white fondant and added a little of Wilton's Brown Gel. It came out a nice peachy brown. You can see the cake in my photos. HTH.
