Hi all, any suggestions on how to get a sandy brown color of fondant? I've tried wiltons brown, and americolor warm brown and chocolate brown and they all have too much pink in them and just look "fleshy". Ick. lol

I'd like a soft sand or darker champagne color without the pink hue.

Could add a color to the brown to counter the pink?

Any help is most appreciated.
Thanks so much!

try the tan food coloring by americolor. To get that sandy look I would start with white then add a touch of brown.

You can try cocoa powder or adding a little yellow with the brown food color.
