Try using a tan/brown/small amount of yellow combination.

What I do when trying to mix colors is use a small amount of icing and small dabs of gel color to try to get my colors. Then I know what I need to do to scale up.

Try using a little bit of yellow and a little flesh tone (copper) but just a tiny bit because your basket is very light in color.
