Ashley’s 2nd Birthday Celebration with Sesame Street-themed Cakes by ButterFingers

This year we decided on a small-scale celebration of Ashley’s 2nd birthday. What first came to my mind was that I wanted Ashley to have a birthday cake that features her favourite character, ELMO. Searching through dozens of images of birthday cakes with Elmo designs was overwhelming and fun at the same time. Luckily for me, Rachel, our long time friend from our JC years have her home-based business, ButterFingers wherein she bakes beautiful cakes and cupcakes for special occasions. With her advice and suggestions, we finally decided on a cake design featuring Elmo on a garden themed setting. Initially, I was considering incorporating both of Ashley’s favourite TV characters, Elmo and Barney on the same cake. However, upon seeing a photo Rachel sent me, I decided against it and told myself, I needed the standing rainbow with Elmo (Ashley would love it given that she is recently into the Youtube video clip, Elmo in the Sky)! And I am glad I did coz it turned out fabulous as shown in  the photos below (photo credits to ButterFingers).

Lunching with the Stingrays at Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora (S.E.A Aquarium)

The annual affair has arrived once again. Weeks prior to Colin’s 2xth birthday, I ransacked my brains on ideas to celebrate his birthday. Colin has always been an advocate of simple yet personal birthday experiences. Therefore, I wanted to bring him someplace different this year, away from his favorite steaks at classic steakhouses such as Lawry’s, Gordon Grill and Morton’s. In addition, since my plan was to bring our little darling along on this day (How can we ever leave cute Ashley at home??), I decided on Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora (S.E.A Aquarium). Why is that so? The photos on the website was simply mesmerizing, with the view of marine life in the restaurant while you dine.

Here is a sneak peek of the 3-course set lunch we ordered on that day.

Cabbage and Bacon Soup

Swordfish Tartare

The soup is rich and creamy with a smooth texture finish. My first try at tartare and I love it. It is simply refreshing and appetitising with the fruits (apple, cucumber and avocado) complementing the swordfish.
