I need some help with getting a coral color for flowers I'm making for a wedding cake and cupcakes. Where I live we only have wilton colors and no Americolor. My question is does anyone know which color to mix from Wilton to make a coral color? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I mix pink and yellow to get a peach so maybe try that and see how close you get?  Maybe someone will pop on here with the exact 'recipe' for coral.  Good luck!

 

 

Found this!!! 

Coral

Creamy Peach and a touch of Pink, or Orange and a touch of Pink, or 3 parts Rose Pink to 2 parts Lemon Yellow

 

it is off a site called ~from karen's kitchen.

I've used a light( apricot)orange and bright pink dusts which can be added and brushed onto finished product or can be mixed together with a drop of water.

I've just posted a round wedding cake with coral  chocolate roses, which were dusted. In the picture they look a little more orange than they actually are as my camera isn't great.

Hope it helps!

AI did think about those colors to mix, but I wasn't a 100% sure. But thank you very much for your:grin: input. I do appreciate it. :)
