Hi Diane,

There are a few mixing charts on this thread (I think there are more on page 3), maybe you can find what your looking for on there.

I think yellow + red = orange + touch of brown

Get your icing orange, then start adding in small amounts of brown until it's almost to the "burnt" stage. Let it sit a few hours, it will darken to burnt orange. I've done enough Texas Longhorn themed cakes to know, haha.
