Wow who would have thunk it but this is what I found using google.

Red and yellow make orange, so to achieve a burnt orange start with a reddish orange base, then add blue to make the burnt orange color.

here is the link in case you need it:

"make your dark orange with red and yellow. add very little brown like maybe just a toothpick dip or drop." hope it helps

I love this color chart!

Burnt orange is "rust" in the chart"

She made it clear she doesn't want rust color. The orange I have which is Wilton brand isn't a dark orange. I sure hope I get this coloring right.

Maybe you could dabble with the proportions of the red yellow and brown? I think that if you add a little more yellow to the mix it will be ok

I made burnt orange (you can see it in my TX Longhorns cake in my photos) using orange , ivory, and copper from the Wilton colors.
