Wanted to re-create it for this weekend but Im not sure what the color is?  Peach? Pink?  Also if it is peach, and advice on achieving a similar shade as the photo?


Im guessing the bottom liner of the cupcake is a light pink from wilton candy melt, but the top is a bit darker and doesnt look like a pink shade.

It looks like an apricot coral to me.

Thanks! Now do can I make it?  I need it for the fondant items and also for the buttercream. :)

This is what  I found when I searched it,




I could be off base though,


You could try a few mixes on small pieces of fondant to see which comes out the closest but remember fondant darkens once it settles.

Thanks for the link, great for future reference! I didnt have most of the colors mentioned so decided to try Wiltons pink with a bit of the regular yellow and think I got a close enough color match. Will be putting together the cake tomorrow and update with the finished product :)
