Hi I don't have the "orange" gel colour but am trying to make orange. A pumpkin orange to be exact. I have no taste red and christmas red. For yellow I have golden yellow and lemon yellow. Does anyone have any suggestions on which of these combinations would give me that bright orange I am looking for? Also to get a brighter colour should the ratio be 1:1 or more of red or yellow? Thanks.

Well.. if you have "creamy peach" it makes an orange if you add enough to white icing this happened to me once.. if your red is really concentrated you would need Less then yellow. If you have orange extract add that to kick start your colour!

Iwould try the no taste & lemon yellow see how that turns out

More yellow than red play with the colors until you get what you like

No taste red and lemon yellow, equal parts. BC will darken over time. So wait in between adding more coloring.

I made orange today and I needed a LOT of lemon yellow. (I was using Whipped Cream Buttercream). I also used a little Christmas red. I would say do a sample with a tablespoon of icing in a separate container. No-taste red is supposed to be slighlty on the orange side while Christmas red is on the violet side, I think. I would try combos of each in tablespoon incremants. Good luck!
