I remember years ago, working as a cookie decorator, being amused when a customer specified pantone colors for the icing. Um, yeah, we mix the icing by hand, not CMYK. A few drops here, a few drops there to match an invitation or dress or, well, we did the best we could. Matching pantone colors was deemed absurd. Photographer Alison Anselot’s Pantone Food, which matches pantone colors with food, suggests we were a bit short-sighted. See the whole spread HERE. (spotted on Foodiggity).
