Does anyone know if Wilton or Americolor have the color peach? If not, what colors should I mix to try & get peach? Thanks in advance.

And just a touch as a little goes along way...If you add too much it's hard to bring it back..

There are many variations of peach; flesh-, orange-, rose-ish. If you have a swatch you're trying to match, it's easier to get the correct shade desired. When I mix peach, it's mostly yellow with a tiny amount of pink. If you add orange or use too much pink, it becomes more of a salmon color. If you want more of the fleshtone color, it's probably easier to buy the flesh color paste or liquid.

I use small amounts of pink and orange-and sometimes yellow-to get the shade of peach I am looking for.

For fleshtone I make a rosie-peach, then add a touch of brown.

You may need to use a powder color depending on how you're using the royal icing; both Wilton and Americolor have glycerin in them.
