Clown Fish Power: Finding Nemo Cupcakes






I usually don't like to do Disney or typical cartoon stuff-- there are people who do it much better than I, and I prefer to do more vintage-look or strange or different cute stuff. Cause there's a million Finding Nemo stuffies and tshirts and yadda yadda all that... But I gotta admit, this little dude's face is pretttty cute. And what a bummer story. Poor little clownfish loses his mom and all his siblings, then he thinks he's lost his DAD too? It's almost as sad as An American Tail (one of my top favorite movies from when I was a kid!! -- quick aside: I CRIED at my own birthday sleepover watching this song from this movie, because I got so sad that poor Russian Feivel the mouse thought his whole family was gone forever!!)

Um, just watched that clip that I linked to above. Now, at aged 32, Feivel's voice is just a leeeetle bit grating to me... haha! But I FELT his pain when I was 9.

Back to Nemo. Orange clownfish!! Nice Haynes really really wanted Nemo cupcakes for his girlfriend's birthday, so of course I obliged! Actually, I don't think my cupcakes look too much like Nemo. They kind of look like Nemo's nerdy cousin Meemo from Canada who is 5 years behind clownfish fashion trends. And Haynes ordered Coco Cake Snowball flavour. Now that's a cool dude. Happy Birthday Judy, hope you liked your little Nemos!

Aw, bless little nemo. I cant remember much of the film, but I always remember one of the parts of it, in my bike team we've struggled up many a hill chanting 'keep on peddling' when we remember the part of the film when he sings 'keep on swimming, keep on swimming'!!
