Sooooo it's been a very long time since I have done a basketball cake does anybody have advice for me on how to get the "basketball color" I can't remember for the life of me what I use to do. Can I maybe just mix and brown and a red? hmmm....thanks!

Yes ..you can mix brown and red or if you can get ahold of wiltons Terra Cotta color that is also the perfect color.

cool thanks I thought maybe they had that color but I couldn't remember. If I find time I will try to find it if not I will try to brown and red.

Here's a good link for mixing colors, scroll all the way down - I'm thinking start with rust and go from there.

Here's a page from wilton.com on decorating the sports ball cake, which shows terra cotta for the basketball:
