Ocean Cup Cakes & Blue Vanilla Buttercream

I have been busy for the past two days as I busy arranged Lucas's 10years old Birthday party. First I would like to share with you the Ocean cup cakes that I baked for this Birthday party.

The main Birthday cake is followed Ocean theme, thus the cup cake also followed the same theme. I use fish cookie to decorate this cup cake, this fish cookie used to be my favourite when I was a kid, I used to buy this from pasar (market), love the slightly salty taste. Is this also your favourite cookie or you have never seen this kind of cookie before?
