Mermaid Cake, Garlic Prawns, Seafood Pasta, Spicy Crab - Sarah's Birthday

As promised, here are some pictures of the cake as well as some of the food I made for Sarah's birthday. First up the Mermaid Cake. I think it turned out rather nice...! The 'rock' is cake covered in chocolate and the fish are actually candles. I textured the icing to make it look like waves. Sarah absolutely loved the cake - and that made all the effort worthwhile!


Mermaid Cake






Garlic Prawns


I sauteed lots of garlic and nions and then lightly cooked the prawns. I added in some mushrooms and chilli flakes before serving it on a bed of boiled leek.



Seafood Pasta


Some Dory fish mixed with a pack of seafood mix - clams, squid, prawns - and cooked them all in a Marinara sauce. I combined shell pasta and half circular macaroni together with the seafood sauce to make this tasty dish.



Spicy Crab


Stir Fried some Crab Claw and Crab Meat with onions, garlic, lots of curry leaves, some curry powder and pepper. Added in some Chilli Padi at the end as well to make this tasty and spicy dish.



I also made 'Octopus Sausages' - an idea I got from another website. Sausages are cut in half and then eight slits made lengthwise into them. When the sausages are boiled, the eight slits turn outward to form 'tentacles'! Easy and simple and all the kids loved it. My wife also made a chicken pie which turned out great.


Happy Birthday Sarah!
