Sweetish Fin

The kids (and me admittedly) adored the movie “Wreck-it-Ralph”. It’s rare to find an entertaining movie the family can enjoy together, so when Fin said he’d like a Sugar Rush racer theme for his birthday party I jumped on it! And then I sat on it for two months…

His birthday was last month, alas, but the poster still needed to be done. It was calling to me. Must… commemorate… birthday… Jackass! So I took up where I left off last month and got down to business.

After much discussion on a name, Jenn came up with “Sweetish Fin” based on his love of Swedish Fish, the deliciously soft, chewy, fruity treat.

Happy gummy fish hat, who wouldn’t want one?
