I think we first need to know what "flesh tone" means exactly. Caucasian or African?

Wilton simply makes a "Flesh" color that is pretty good in small quantities (and I mean small) for Caucasian.

You could add a touch of copper.

A small amount of Wilton's "ivory" makes a nice shade. Some people like to add a little peach to it also but I don't think it needs it

combine pink fondant with yellow. you can control the color that you want. this is my favorite technique.

I have used orange and yellow (very little of each) and I have gotten a very great flesh tone! Especially if you are only have the basic colors!

I agree with fcakes, I just use a little brown & it makes a great flesh tone.
