Fun And Fabulous Finding Nemo Birthday Cake Ideas
That Have Great Undersea Appeal!

A Finding Nemo cake is the perfect option for a birthday party that is centered on an “Under the Sea” theme, or even a theme based on the hit computer-animated movie, “Finding Nemo”.

Finding Nemo Birthday Cake – Bringing The Clown Fish To The Party

This movie focuses on the clown fish named Marlin that is exceptionally overprotective of his son, Nemo. Unfortunately, the little fish is abducted and Marlin and an absent-minded regal tang who is named Dory start the hunt for little Nemo. Along the way, the two fish run into sharks, a dangerous submarine wreck, the East Australian Current, and other dangers and adventures associated with the deep sea.

To help bring this fun animated movie to life in your home, we have many pictures on this page of how others have created their own Finding Nemo cake. If you want to integrate this little clown fish into a birthday party that you are planning, we would like to invite you to check out these pictures for inspiration of how to do so.

Finding Nemo Birthday Cake

I started with a white fondant that I colored as needed for the orange and black needed for Nemo. I baked a rectangle cake that was easily cut into a basic fish shape and then used two of the cut areas to create the fin on his back and side. Using a container of frosting, I created a layer to help hold the fondant still and to help smooth the surface of the cake.

I placed rolled and placed the orange fondant first - making sure I covered the fins. I then trimmed the frosting and proceeded on.

I rolled and cut the stripes of black and using a little water to act as glue placed them as desired onto the shape.


Now that you have taken a look at our selection of Finding Nemo birthday cake ideas, you can clearly see that there are many unique and creative ways of creating this type of cake. Each cake clearly outlines the underwater theme and exhibits one or more of the many characters that were depicted in the movie. The most commonly included character, of course, is Nemo. However, there are many cakes that not only show Nemo and highlight the under the sea theme, but also display other characters from the movie. If you have a true passion for creating a Finding Nemo cake, the following instructions will help you:

Instructions for Creating an Under the Sea Nemo Cake

Items Needed:

  • Disney-Pixar Finding Nemo PVC Figurine Play set
  • Under the Sea Cake Toppers (Starfish, Coral, and Shells)
  • Two Boxes of White Cake Mix
  • Large Square Cake Pan
  • Blue Fondant
  • Blue Glitter Gel Paste
  • White Icing
  • Blue Gel Paste
  • Blue Food Coloring
  • Cake Tray

Step 1: Create the batter for the cake with the cake mix boxes.

Step 2: Prepare the large square cake pan, pour in the batter, bake, and allow to completely cool.

Step 3: Mix the blue food coloring and a tad bit of gel paste that is blue with some white icing to create a blue water icing. Then, completely ice the cake once it has been placed on the cake tray.

Step 4: Next, mix the blue fondant with the blue glitter gel paste and the blue gel paste and roll it out. Once you have done this, lay it over the entire cake.

Step 5: Next, take the Disney-Pixar Finding Nemo PVC figurine play set and arrange the pieces on the top area of the cake. The figures included in this set are Nemo, Marlin, Dory, Squirt, Gil, Pearl, Bubbles, Bloat, and Bruce.

Step 6: Next, take the under the sea cake toppers and place them on the top and sides of the cake.

Now that you have the knowledge that it takes to create a Finding Nemo birthday cake, it is time to put your creativity to work.
