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!!! 


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. :)
