how do you decide what to decorate a cake if there is no opinion from a "customer"

 

making a baby girl shower cake for a cousin and i can not think of how i want to decorate it... i did cupcakes for another cousin -i made baby rattles,booties,bodysuits and bows for those cupcakes... i want to do something "new" but not sure what other then a cake and not cupcakes...

Ask her how she's going to decorate for the party, what colors she's chosen, or if she has a theme. Then proceed from there.

i have looked at pinterest and google... (nothing is "special " to me that makes me want to bake/decorate a cake like it..)

 

i guess my question is if there is nothing on those sites, pictures from a book or magazine, ideas from a client- do you just whip up something out of blue?? are you generally more open to like what you created or do you analyze each thing when you try to "copy" it

I usually use invitations for inspiration.
