Step 1

Fill a bowl with white icing with the amount of icing that you are going to need for your cake.

Step 2

Dip your toothpick into the orange coloring. Dip a separate one in the pink food coloring.

Step 3

Stir the white icing with the color-dipped toothpick for a few circulations. Once you have done this, stir in the orange coloring in the same way. Then stir up the icing with a stirring utensil and wait for a few minutes to make sure the color has taken. Because orange added to pink is a similar color to flesh, it may only take one application. However, it will most likely be too light on first application. Repeat this process several times until the color is satisfactory. It may take several stirrings to darken the color enough to make your flesh color. Equal parts pink and pale peach should yield flesh coloring. If the color gets too dark, simply add a drop of white food coloring to the mix, which will lighten the mixture.
