Hi. I'm making a friend's wedding cake and the theme of the wedding is college football. She went to Virginia Tech (VT) and he went to Arizona State (ASU). I'm trying to incorporate all three colors into the cake; maroon, orange and gold. Maroon is the only common color so this is the most important to me. My question is, how do I get the food coloring the right color? I have both school's color palette (listed below). Am I getting too technical?? Thanks!

ASU Maroon
PMS 208
C:0
M:100
Y:36
K:37

ASU Gold
PMS 123
C:0
M:24
Y:94
K:0

VT Maroon:
PMS 208
Cyan = 40%
Magenta = 100%
Yellow = 50%
Black = 15%

VT Orange:
Magenta = 65%
Yellow = 90%
