I *think* Wilton has a colour called 'terracotta', which might be what you're after...maybe start with that and then tweak the colour with a touch of orange, red or brown as needed.

Otherwise I'd just start by mixing a good bright orange and then add a little brown a touch at a time until you get it right.

Thats what I did for my basketball cookies and cupcakes I did this weekend. I added a little brown to my orange until it was the color of a basketball. It was about 5 parts orange and 1 part warm brown.

For a pumpkin we mixed orange with a little bit of copper. I think the color of the pumpkin and a basketball are similar, I'd just adjust the color accordingly.
