HELP! I need help coming up with a design for a client. She would like a cake that reflects her (perfect sounding) brother. Below is her description of him:

"He is very musical and writes/reads a lot. He's well-spoken, somewhat well-travelled, and speaks a couple languages. He dresses nice--trendy and classy. He's very smart and witty, a new father, and enjoys board games and card games. He has bright blue eyes.

I kind of picture something sleek and stylish, yet masculine maybe with blues, purples, browns, and/or greens somewhere in there."

Ladies, I really need your help with ideas on how to do this cake!! Send me pictures or comment with ideas! I would be very appreciative!!

You say that he likes board games - could you do a cake like a monopoly board or similar with items to do with his life in the spaces on the board, eg picture of passport, planes, baby (as new father) etc

What about making the cake like a GQ magazine cover touting all the talents and hobbies of her brother. Maybe do a cartoon-like portrait or use icing image to save some time.
