I need to make this cake and was wondering if anyone can tell me what I should used for the top tier?  I actually made a similar color last year but I had to mix several colors to achieve the results that I wanted.  I am hoping to just purchase a single gel color this time.  Any help would be great!  Thanks

Top tier looks like the Copper color, or flesh tone as it is also called. Bottom tier looks like soft pink, both are gel colors found in almost any cake supply shop online.

ALooks like a dark salmon colour. Unsure of how you make it, but I also would love to know.

Thanks for the responses. I am not really seeing copper, then again, colors can look different from computer to computer.   Salmon is a good guess.  I will go play with the colors and let you know what works, thanks again!

If you use red, just not enough to actually make red, it is that color.

^^^ agreed...the lighter and darker shades of pink look like under developed 'red' gel, or pre-'red' if you will ...the lavendar shade looks like the light pink stage with a hint of 'blue' gel.
