My Nemo Adventure...

4:53 PM

Thursday was the day my little one turned five...



It struck me as he left for school with my Dad, who along with my Mom, was here specially for his birthday. It was 5 years ago that this lovely little guy came into our lives and brightened them...


He was so small and fragile...


I always was scared that I'd do something wrong and hurt him...


But I guess I have been a good mother and my baby grew up to be a wonderful boy...


He has made me proud...


He has touched my heart like no one has...


He has made my life worthwhile...


Given it meaning... 


So when he wanted a Nemo themed party for his birthday, how could I not do it? Even though it meant trying to attempt baking AND decorating a cake!

So began my adventures with fondant...

I searched everywhere for recipes of fondant, but all needed liquid glucose... 

I could not find it anywhere...

But at last I located it and used a simple recipe to make fondant. It was absolutely easy (except getting that liquid glucose out of the bottle) and  fun to work with.

My Nemo was ready...


So were the other decorations - some sea grass, corals and some shells too!


The return gifts were bars of Pears soap...


molten and recast in molds with shells collected from my recent trip to Tarkarli...


Along with some Nemo coloring pages and soap bubble kits... All packed and tagged...


Cake was ready...


and was delicious too...


I was totally happy with my creation! Do not forget that this was my first attempt at making a cake!


The decorations were all orange and blue...


And some finer touches too...


Including a Nemo character collage on the wall...


The kids had a great time...


Mom and Dad had got kiddo a Shirt with some Led lights in it. He was not ready to wear anything else - not even the Nemo T shirt that I was going to make for him!



all in all, it was a wonderful adventure!!! Worth every effort taken...
