these colors are all being muted with 'brown'. start with the developed base color and add brown...

 

honey gold = golden yellow (developed) + brown

burnt orange = orange (developed) + brown

bonfire = orange + a touch of red (developed) + brown

 

after adding the brown, let the color darken again (develop). add more brown as necessary.

AAdd the brown in tiny amounts at a time. I botched a big batch of red royal icing with one drop of black!

or make brown/black icing/fondant and add that to your colorations -- i even put the icing in a piping bag for maximum control
