I'm doing a first birthday cake for triplets, and I'm having trouble deciding on a color scheme that I really like and that is appropriate for both genders. I haven't finalized the design yet, but it will likely be two tiers with a simple design (stripes, dots, etc.) and possibly a large cupcake on top. I'm trying to avoid doing really intense colors like black or red.

So...if you were doing this cake, what colors would YOU use?

I understand your wanting to stay away from intense colors.
A yellow, green and peach color combination would be nice.
The two posted ideas are really nice.

Just do red, blue and yellow, but in a pastel tone.

Or do green, yellow and brown.

The typical gender neutral colors are yellow and green, and to a lesser degree orange.
Here's some examples of this color combo:

Here is a kind of neat website for creating color pallettes in general. On the same site there is a basic color generator page and then a little more involved one:
you can save the pallettes etc.
