I'm wondering if anyone knows how to make the right color icing to do the roses at this link?

I have the instructions for this cake in my Wilton cake book, and they originally used their aster mauve icing color, but I looked on their website and that color is discontinued.

So I wondered if anyone has any experience with doing roses that are this same color, or very similar? Like what kind of icing colors to mix together?

i would use a nice amount of rose pink -- maybe one little bit of hot pink if needed to intensify/deepen the pink eliminates having to use too much rose pink color--

then a tad of brown  -- to make it smokey looking
