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

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.

Try Google Images:  Brown and pink baby shower cake.

 

Tons of ideas come up.  :)  I'm sure you'll find something there to inspire you.

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.
