I'd probably use Wilton rose pink for that, but the red colors tend to change a lot anyway as the fondant sits. I'd just do a general pink color and not worry about getting it exactly right. Start light and work it darker bit by bit.

Thanks for the response, but I really was interested in that shade of peachy pink that I can't seem to get. Any ideas out there?

Americolor makes "peach" that is a perfect peach color.   Can you get this?

I can... do you think the color in picture is just the peach, or is there something else mixed in? THANKS!

I think it is a light peach.   If you google "how to make peach color" you will see lots of advice.    I am not good at mixing colors to get my end result.   I would rather buy, if possible the gel I need.   The americolor peach is very concentrated, so start of with very little and add if needed.
