Make a Nemo birthday cake for your child's party or to celebrate a movie day where the featured film is Finding Nemo.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 60-75 minutes

Here's How:

  1. Prepare a box of cake mix and bake according to the recipe instructions for two round pans.
  2. Allow cakes to cool.
  3. Transfer one round cake (Nemo's body) onto a large board or surface, such as a wrapped piece of cardboard or cookie pan.
  4. Carve the second cake into the shapes of Nemo's tail and fins. Arrange them around Nemo's body.
  5. Mix one drop of red and several drops of yellow food coloring with a bowl of white frosting until you have the desired color of orange. Frost Nemo's body, fins and tail with the orange icing.
  6. Outline the cake with chocolate chips. Arrange mini marshmallows and chocolate chips to create Nemo's stripes.
  7. Cut one mini marshmallow in half and flatten it out. Press a chocolate chip into the center to create Nemo's eye. Arrange chocolate chips to form his mouth.
