How would I get this color in modeling chocolate?  I have no ideal what to even call this color.

Also just in case how would I get this color in fondant just in case I dont do the modeling chocolate as I have never made it before.

Thanks for any reply in advance

AWhich colour? The barrel and board? It looks like they started out with ivory and used beige/brown petal dusts, or an airbrush, to shade it. That's how I would do it anyway.

For the pale color of the flower barrel I'd start by using white candy melts to make my modeling chocolate. To that I might add the smallest pinch of ivory, yellow and black (just a pin pricks amount). You can also brush the finished barrel with dusts, which I think they did in your photo.

That barrel looks like it was made with white modeling chocolate that was patterned to look like wood then dusted with cocoa powder.
