Ok, I have a customer whose sister just got married, is having a birthday this month (Dec.) and is having a baby girl in May....she would like to have a "celebration cake" for a family gathering. 20 servings, so not big at all.

The customer wants to incorporate all the things going on in her sisters life (mentioned above), wants a pretty cake and to celebrate her sister. She said that her sister is a wonderful person who cares for all and never does much for herself. She's the director of Peace Corp in Seatle, loves to travel, no favorite colors or real "hobbies"

I'm kind of at a loss for this one...

The customer did mention something like a princess castle cake that I had done, but this will feed way more than 20 and I'm not really feeling it for this one...she also said that her sister would think it was corny...I'd rather her be in love with the cake than feel it was corny (maybe that's just me).

Any help is appreciated. Right now I'm thinking a round or square cake with something to represent each facet of life around the sides of the cake with something on top...not sure yet, what.

I see this cake as present. I imagine the box half opened, and popping out a ring(because she got married), some birthday candles and baby item like a pacifier).
