What are 'Couples Baby Showers'? A client's requests opened my eyes on the subject

This week a client asked me to order a cake for a 'Couple Baby Shower'. Being in the dark about what  'Couples Baby Showers' are I did a little research and found out that basically it is a Baby Shower where guys are part of the picture. JD Lassica on Baby Center suggest to make it a family event, forgo pink and adjust the choice of party favors, another idea is to have it outdoors (weather permitting), also to not have it on a big sports event day. Audrey Cowan at Preggie Peggie favors adjusting the games so they appeal to both sexes, also make sure that more than a couple of men show up and at gift opening time have both future parents open the gifts.
I am still not sure how different the cake should be.
