Baby Shark Ocean Themed Cake


Baby Shark Doo Doo!





This is a perfect Cake to make for a ocean themed party. You could add any type of cake topper, just like I added a baby shark. I made this as a smash cake for a 1st birthday! It was the perfect addition to the baby shark themed party!


Materials

Directions:

  1. Make sure you have all of your materials. 
  2. Start by splitting your white frosting into 2 separate bowls. Color 1 bowl of frosting a darker shade of blue and the other a lighter shade of blue. 
  3. Use the lighter shade of blue and coat the whole cake with a thin layer. Chill for 10 minutes. Chilling will help stiffen the frosting making it easier to spread and get a smooth look. 
  4. Next spread the darker shade of frosting around the bottom half of the cake. Smooth it out to create an ombre look. I also added the darker frosting to just the top of the cake. Let Chill again for at least 10 minutes. 
  5. Now you get to add the ocean decorations. First cut the sour gummy strips into starfish, seaweed and coral. I used red for starfish, orange cut thin and twisted to make coral, and then green cut to look like seaweed. If you would like you could also cut out small fish or other shapes of coral. Stick these decorations around the outside of the cake. 
  6. Use the sprinkles to add final details. Use the white pearl sprinkles to add bubbles and the colored sprinkles to create a rock look to the bottom of the ocean. I also used the colored sprinkles to add detail to the top of the cake. 
  7. Last add your cake topper and show off your beautiful cake!

Fish Craft for Summer



Gone Fishing!



What a fun craft for the kids to make during the summer. On the days it's too hot out and we are stuck inside it is the best time to make a craft! 


Materials:


Directions:




  1. Get all materials ready on a washable surface. 
  2. Cut our a fish shape from one color of construction paper, and a bobber shape out of a white paper. 
  3. Paint the top and bottom of the bobber red. We did both sides so when we hang it up it can spin around. 
  4. Next paint and decorate the fish, on both sides if you would like. We used a sponge roller to create a splattered look on the fish. Next we glued on the glitter just in the spots where the fins would be. We also did glitter for the eyes. 
  5. After all of the paint and glue is dry, use the hold punch to make a hole in the end of the fish and the top and bottom of the bobber. 
  6. Tie the fish and the bobber together and then hang it up!
