Color Inspiration in Cake: A Rainbow Array of Birthday Confections

Color Inspiration in Cake: A Rainbow Array of Birthday Confections


Once a year, we each get to be king or queen for the day, having the world (theoretically) shift on its axis to center around us! We're talking about annual birthday celebrations! And who doesn't love those?!

And what makes any birthday party complete? A dazzling, delicious, and colorful cake, of course! We've gathered here some of our favorite colorful confections, as well as the pigment-infused palettes they've inspired. We'd love to see your birthday cakes (or cupcakes!) from past years, as well as patterns and palettes you've been inspired to create because of them! Until then, we're wishing you all many more anniversaries and yearly celebrations filled with awe-inspiring Birthday cake bliss!

I actually look forward to these posts for the color inspiration. Thank you!
I wonder if you might do one on some nature images. While I just love the colors in Birthday cakes and hot air balloons, I also like the colors in nature. Sunsets, flower gardens, whatever. You've probably done them before, but, I just thought I would ask.
Thank you kindly!

Hi Su!

Thanks so much for reading, and for the encouragement and affirmation! We greatly enjoy writing the blogs, and just bringing that extra bit of fun, and colorful infusion of inspiration to the Colourlover family bi-weekly! We actually just did a sunset blog:

And if you search back through them, have done many nature ones, from bugs to sunsets! Happy reading! And thanks so much for your feedback; we really value it!

@Dancinedane,
I must apologize, then! It didn't occur to me to just go look. (shame-red).
I love this site! I love color! LOL
And, the people are very friendly!
Please do not think I was complaining - I would never. I need some nature colors, saw the newsletter and decided to make a suggestion - without checking first.
Keep doing what you all are doing 'cause you do it so well!
Thank you!

No apologies needed! So glad you are enjoying the blog, and keep those comments and suggestions coming--it's a forum for YOU after all! We'd love to see your own additions/palette inspirations as well if related to each blog! *Simply copy the badge link on the right side once your palette or pattern is created! Happy creating!
