I've only seen wilton copper used as flesh color, however, I'm convinced that there are better options out there. I've heard Americolor is great. What is everyone's favorite flesh color?

Americolor has a coopertone (Flesh) also and you don't have to use a toothpuck either...makes a nice flesh color.You can use Peach too!!

In the UK, we have colours by Sugarflair... they do one called Paprika which is good (although a wee touch on the orangey side) and Chestnut. Both, in minuscule amounts are perfect for flesh tone.

I mix ivory w/copper. You can see the shade in this photo: http://forum.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1429556

I have only used wilton colors because americolor not readily available where I am.

But I take the wilton peach and start off with that, and if needed I add a touch of pink to it...mostly trial and error but works great for me.

I have heard great things about Americolor though and cant wait to get some on my next trip into the city icon_smile.gif

Hope this Helps icon_smile.gif

If you use a peach or flesh color and find it looks to pinky, adding a TINY (barely a dot from a toothpick) speck of green it'll even the tone out and make it a truer skin tone.
