I've been asked to make a baby shower cake with a baby on top. I bought the mould that is of the baby sleeping on it's tummy with the little bum up. Does anyone know what the best color to use to tint my fondant skin colored? I want it to look nice... and not end up on cake wrecks, lol
I use just a little brown to make it a flesh color.
I use the colour Paprika/flesh - it's a bit pinker than brown I think and therefore more flesh like. You do need to be very careful not to add too much.
Hi, the color to use for skin tone is copper from wilton. A little amount. I just put the tip of a toothpick and if you need more a little at a time.
If you can't get it right, you can do like I do and just go buy the Wilton mini pack that has natural pink, light brown, brown and black. I think it's about $8, but if you get the 40% off coupon from Michael's or Hobby Lobby, then you can save more. Keep any unused in a ziplock bag, air tight and in the freezer, and you'll have some for next time too
I start with white, then add a very little pink and just a touch of yellow.
Ivory with a hint of pink.
I agree with the last poster - ivory with either pink or peach. Extremely small amounts of each - and by extremely I mean just the very tip of a toothpick.
I just use Wilton's ivory. I tried adding a little peach but it went wrong. I think just the ivory on its own is a good color.
I use just the tiniest bit of wilton copper.
I use a tiny bit of Americolor copper.
Thanks everyone! I'll give your suggestions a try & see how it goes!
What if I wanted a darker skin tone - would I add brown.
