Topic: making orange icing

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.

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!
