Skin Tone Color Palette and Icing Formulas

Skin tone icing color palette and the formulas you need to recreate them! 

I used Chefmaster brand food coloring for all of these formulas.


If you're not sure what the "parts" mean, or how to use these formulas, check out THIS POST for detailed step-by-step photos!

When I make different colors with the same ratios (like the 1st and 2nd or 3rd and 5th colors above), I usually make the darkest color first. Then I add some of the darker colored icing into a bowl of fresh white icing to make a lighter version of the same icing.

When I make very light or pale icing colors, I mix the food coloring into a very small amount of icing (2 tablespoons) first and then use that saturated icing to color the rest of my icing. (Check out THIS POST for details.)
