My son was turning 2 and he is in love with Nemo. I knew I needed to make my 1st cake. (I was scared). I came upon this site while doing my search! And used some others ideas.
I did 2 9×13 white cakes with chocolate filling, 2 9in layered round cakes with Vanilla filling, and 1 7in Square cake carrot with cream cheese filling. I used Wilton recipe for Buttercream frosting, tinted it with Wilton Coloring Blue (Cant remember the #).
Did the seaweed with a leaf tip #47 with a line of a light green down the middle. And Coral with the orange, I drew some starfish and other fish. I used Choco chips for the dirt with some sprinkles, Rock candy for some coral.
After I was through decoration I put 4 cake sticks in the cake so I would have something for my topper to go since my topper was so heavy. (I had to buy a whole Nemo fish tank and use the figurine in it for my cake topper, because no one carries anything Nemo where I live). And tada! I’m so glad I found this site!
