I need some design ideas please!  I have a client that would like a "manly" baby shower cake for her husband for a couples' shower- something like a garage (typical house garage), or tools, maybe a dirty baby, etc.  He loves to tool around in the garage, has a Harley Davidson, favorite too brand.

I am totally stumped and cannot even conceive any ideas beyond a large tool chest in his favorite brand.  If anyone can help me visualize an idea or two, I would greatly appreciate it.  I can usually find lots of inspiration on this site, but am a loss as to where to start with this one!

AWhat about a topper of a baby with smudges on its cheeks holding a hammer and screwdriver? Open toolbox with baby bottles inside?

How about a tool belt with baby supplies instead of tools?

I think a cute idea would be centered around Dad using tools and such to put the diaper on. Maybe a baby with a wonky diaper (backwards, sideways, inside out or something" and "tools" laying around it. Maybe a cute saying. Good luck!

Maybe you could make the tool box and that would be the baby's bassinet and instead of a rattle put a wrench in his hand.  And dress the baby like a Harley Dude.


Or have the baby dressed in his Harley duds working on his motorcycle.  Bottle in one hand, wrench in another.  Have a six pack of baby bottles like beer with one missing because he is drinking while he is working.
