I am making a University of Texas Longhorns theme baby shower cake and I am having trouble getting it the right color. Does anyone know what colors and how much I should add to orange to achieve this shade?

It looks like a brown with orange undertones.

I would suggest starting off light and going darker. Therefore, start with your orange as your base and add brown until it reaches the color you want.

I've made several Texas Long Horn cookies and one cake....I made a deep orange first, then added brown to it until the right color was achieved!
