Hi again everyone!

I've been to San Francisco a few times over these past few months. On one particular trip we rented a convertible and drove up through Napa/Sonoma and of course over the Golden Gate. Ever since I've been toying with the idea of making a Golden Gate Bridge theme cake for a friends daughter (she's obsessed with the bridge). I've been looking through photos we took driving under the bridge and My only issue is the color again, it's this reddish rust color with a bit of orange. Does anyone know of any colors available that might closely match?

For something funky like this, I always tend to mix a color or two...or three! The color looks like a brick red with a bit of orange to me. I would slowly mix together a combo of red, burgundy, and orange to get what you want. Sometimes, experimentation is best. Honestly, if you get the color close and design right, everyone will know exactly what landmark you're going for. Good luck!
