How do I get the color of a basketball? Mix some red with orange? Or, do you just use orange by itself?

Mix orange first and add a tiny bit of brown until you get a terra cotta color.

Thank you very much! My nephew's ball team has their last game this Saturday and I want to surprise him with cookies for his team!

Optionally, you can also use Americolor "Terra Cotta". It works well. But yeah, who wants to buy that just for basketballs, when you get the same thing from orange and brown?
