Wilton makes a ready-made terra cotta gel color. Otherwise I would experiment with orange and a little bit of brown.

Wilton and Americolor both make terra cotta. Another solution is orange and a good bit of brown or a lot of peach with orange.

I would start saturating you icing with orange until it is almost the depth you want (keeping in mind that the color will get darker overnight), then add a little brown until you get the color you want. Terra cotta might also have a hint of pink in it, depending on the actual color you're going for. I would go really light on the pink! I usually have good luck mixing my own colors when I've been in a pinch. Good luck to you!
