Hi..I am making a gambling cake that the customers requirement is hot purple , hot pink and black are the main colors...they want playing cards and lots of gambling chips. I have decided that the black will be used as the top layer in the form of a black dice, middle layer the pink made into a slot machine, while the bottom will be the purple with black and pink spade, diamonds and heart accents. I am just stuck as what color to make chips and cards without making cake look garish and a color overload of bright colors. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I think chips and cards are always red and black. Any other colors on the chips would make them look like cookies or something don't you think?

I have two cakes in my photos with poker chips. One is in pink & black (twin mini purse cakes) it was for a girls 10th bday. The other regular poker style with black, red, and green. I think you can make the chips any color you like.

If the cake is dark, maybe lighter shades of the pink, or purple with black. (caution light purple changes to blue/grey really fast-I work in the dark on light purple)
Love to see a pic when your done.

The color on the chips show how much the chip is worth. There isn't just one color of chips.

To the op, there is a list in that link of the different colors and amounts they stand for. That may give you an idea for some colors you can use that will go with the colors you already have going on.
