How to achieve a flesh tone fondant.

Posted on


I am often asked how to achieve a flesh coloured fondant. It’s so easy to make the fondant the wrong colour and leave it looking like your character has spent the weekend applying fake tan or so pale they should be admitted to hospital.
I always use Wilton Creamy Peach gel food colouring as I find it gives a fresh peach tone to the fondant. Below I have shown just how much of the gel I use to colour 300g of fondant. You really need very little and remember my rule. You can always add more so build up that colour slowly.
I hope this helps you when you are making models or need a flesh ton on your cakes. This Wilton colour is lovely and can be used for so many different things, It’s particularly nice as a base colour for a cake with ivory accents on it, very simple but elegant.
