OK, this is obviously too hard for you all.....

...not even one entry when I started to write this post. I cannot understand why this should be difficult but I will attempt to make it easier......

The challenge is :

 It's all about the cake...

Then, there is a twist......

 The TWIST is to use mainly the primary colours 

In paint pigments, pure Yellow, pure Red, and pure Blue are theoretically the only hues that can't be created by mixing any other colors. Printer inks and web primaries are called Yellow, Magenta and Cyan.

When presenting a design or an idea your choice of colours is very important. Many surveys have been carried out on the general public to find out what people like. The findings suggest that very young children like bright, vibrant colours (reds, yellows and oranges etc...) whilst older people like more gentle or sophisticated colours and tones such as shades of blue. It is very important for a designer to understand the way colours are put together/created as this may help in the selection of the right colour scheme for a particular age group.
Primary Colours - These are colours that cannot be created through the mixing of other colours. 
They are colours in their own right. 
The three primary colours are RED - YELLOW - BLUE

Primary colors are everywhere when we take the time to notice. 

Primary colors cannot be mixed from other colors. They are the source of all other colors. Secondary colors are mixed from two primary colors adjacent to each other on the color wheel. The secondary colors are orange, green and violet. 

You can use the three colours (or variants of them) 

What is hard about that?
