We used some red spray hair dye to make her a little more Ariel-ish and some golden face glitter!
The mermaid theme carried on into the cake. Although I can't claim the credit for the mermaid topper I did make and decorate the two layers based on a design I created.
I used my beloved Peyton & Bryne recipe book for Madeira cake and chocolate marble cake recipes.
Finn obviously didn't miss out and decided on becoming Aqua-man - not a superhero I was familiar with!
I think Finn's version is pretty good - especially as he was pretty happy wearing sparkly green leggings!
I used fabric pens to draw scales on an orange top, sprayed a Halloween devil's fork gold and hot-glued shells to create the trident, a simple gold belt with Velcro fastening and cardboard emblem, and finally then made the fin cuffs with felt and Velcro.
As well as a wonderful party entertainer we had some traditional games - including this pin the tail on mermaid!
Thankfully we have a couple of months rest before the next celebration.
