There’s something fishy about this cake….

A few weeks ago I tried my hand at baking a birthday cake for a colleagues milestone birthday. It came about after I had an unfortunate incident with the microwave at work and a piece of cod I was reheating. Our office smelt like cod for days so the most obvious theme I could think of for the birthday cake was a fish.

Like a good baker I researched away on YouTube on what the best fish shaped cakes were out there. I came across this amazing video and decided I had to give it a go!

Looks impressive!

So armed with my apron, YouTube and enough icing sugar to last a life time I gave it a go!

I think it came out quite well!

I should probably add we are still friends and she loved the cake!

My Fictional Bucket List (7 – 12)

Numbers 7 through to 12 of my fictional bucket list!

Its getting very addictive thinking up fictional situations that I would be a part of ‘if I could’!

7. Just keep swimming with Dory

Why wouldn’t you want to swim alongside Dory! Years after the release of Finding Nemo in 2003 (Almost 10 years!!) any fish like this is automatically a Dory fish! Dory makes my fictional bucket list as i think swimming alongside her would be pretty fun – as long as she remembered you were there!

8. Fall down the rabbit hole with Alice.

I would LOVE to do this… I loved the disney version of Alice when I was younger. Something about the nonsense and questioning just clicks with me. I cant imagine falling down a rabbit hole and after thinking you might die (you are falling down a strange hole after all!) and then suddenly coming along a grandfather clock floating alongside you! Theres nothing not to like about this situation!

9. Give Dobby A sock

Dobby was teated horribly by the Malfoys so I would like to set him free with the gift of a sock! For the non Harry Potter fans, Dobby was a house elf that until being given an item of clothing, would stay their slave forever. Its always good to stand up for those that can not do so themselves! So giving Dobby a sock is my number 9.

Dobby is used to death threats, sir. Dobby gets them five times a day at home.

10. Fight a mountain troll with Harry, Ron and Hermione

Another Harry Potter moment! This trio are one of the best groups of friends out there so I would like to be a part of this situation with them. I’ve loved the Harry Potter series since I was tiny….im pretty sure it will be with me forever! There will always be a place on my shelf for the Harry Potter series (Im also patiently waiting for my owl to arrive with my letter – its got a little lost somewhere!)

11. Get some good advice for Grandmoth Willow

She sorted out Pocahontas with some sound advice so I would like to get some to! I once dressed up as grandmother willow for a school carnival – I didn’t want to be the usual Pocahontas or John Smith…but thats another post!

12. Help Peter find his shadow

This situation seems more funny that serious (although its probably a serious matter to loose your shadow!). The strangeness of loosing your shadow makes me want to help Peter find his!

There we have it, 7 – 12 of my fictional bucket list!

You can read numbers 1 – 6 here or view the whole list on Pinterest! What would be on your fictional bucket list?
