There's a Wilton color paste that's very similar to that color. I think it's called Dusty Rose.

dang they make everything now -- oh the good old days when we mixed everything from the basics Not! hahahaha

anyhow -- it's pink + brown

and of course to hold that pale pink without it going coral you need stark white icing --

best to you

and I should say it's often the case where you want to add colored icing to white icing to make your pale shades or when you just want add a touch of color kwim -- if it's already diluted in a small amount of icing it can be the best way to add a tiny amount--

best to you

Thanx so much!! I'm normally pretty good with mixing colours but this one has baffled me!! I don't want it ending up a yucky dull colour!!
