How can I change the colors of my highcharts piechart?

I'm using highcharts to make a piechart but I'm having trouble loading a custom color set for my chart.

Here is my code:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
Highcharts.setOptions({
colors: ['#50B432', '#ED561B', '#DDDF00', '#24CBE5', '#64E572', '#FF9655', '#FFF263', '#6AF9C4']
});
return new Highcharts.Chart({


chart: {
renderTo: 'trailpiechart',
plotBackgroundColor: null,
plotBorderWidth: null,
plotShadow: false,
backgroundColor: "#f8f8f8",
margin: [20, 20, 20, 20]
},


credits: {
enabled: false
},

title: {
text: caption
},
tooltip: {
formatter: function () {
return this.y + ' links';
}
},
plotOptions: {
pie: {
allowPointSelect: true,
cursor: 'pointer',
dataLabels: {
enabled: false
},
showInLegend: true
}
},
legend: {
layout: 'vertical',
floating: false,
borderRadius: 0,
borderWidth: 0
},
series: [{
type: 'pie',
name: 'Browser share',
data: data
}]
});
});
</script>


My pie chart works with this code but it only uses the default color pallet.

How do you specify a custom color set?

Answer
Highcharts.setOptions({
 colors: ['#50B432', '#ED561B', '#DDDF00', '#24CBE5', '#64E572', '#FF9655', '#FFF263', '#6AF9C4']
});
