Stupid stupid stupid!!! I thought I had almost every Wilton color, but it turns out I don't have orange! I've already made my batch of icing, and have gone to color it and just found this out. I have Red, Christmas Red, and various shades of yellow - is there a good color combo that anyone has tried with these that I could turn into an orange?

Any shade of yellow and red should be o.k.
You could start with yellow and add the red until it's the shade of orange want. HTH icon_smile.gif

I agree...start with a pretty deep shade of yellow then add a bit or red at a time...remember it will darken as it sits too!
