Handy Color Guide by Ingrid Sundberg

Here at Sofia’s Cakes, we’re particular about our client’s color requirements.

Color Palette - Purple

For example, when a client wants purple design elements for their wedding cake and accompanying candy station, you have to know exactly what they want as there are so many shades of purple.

As you can see with this color palette, it’s not as simple as describing something as “light purple” or “deep purple”.  While it may work for some clients or some cake-makers, we’d like to be really specific here at Sofia’s Cakes.

Sure, we’ve got our own catalog of color swatches, but thankfully, Ingrid Sundberg– young adult author and children’s book illustrator– has come up with several handy color guides (just for the fun of it!) to make our work as cake designers, event stylists, and wedding planners so much easier.

Check out Ingrid’s blog over here.  She’s got lots of great tips on writing and the publishing industry.

Note that Ingrid’s selection of colors is by no means complete, but it is still fairly comprehensive, and a good start-off point for anyone looking to organize their color swatches, or to find inspiration for putting together a mood board for an upcoming wedding.
