Saturday Sweets! Spongebob Cake

For the first few years of my kids' lives, I was able to either pick the cake they had for their birthday or somehow talk them into a cake I wanted to make....i.e. not a character cake.  But when my oldest turned 5, she was determined to have a Spongebob cake.  After some kicking and screaming by me, I ended up giving in and making one for her.

This ended up being A LOT bigger than I planned.  It was so heavy.  I used a kitchen shelf for the cake board.  The bottom picture shows it next to a can of pop for reference.  Needless to say, we had over half of this darn cake left after the party.  

I used 2 sheet cakes for the body - One 2 inch thick chocolate and one 2 inch thick vanilla and stacked them - so it was about 5 inches thick with the frosting and fondant.  I used buttercream to cover the cake and then added fondant over top.  Many people don't eat fondant so I wanted to be sure they still had frosting if they peeled it off.  The kids; of course, love fondant...so they ate the arms and legs first:)

So here ya go, the only character cake (well, besides a Hello Kitty one)  I have made and hope to ever make!  Not sure if I'll get away with that though since the kids are only 7 and 5...

  2. WOW!! Would you adopt me and make this cake for my next birthday?
    And I am not even a sponge bob fan! In fact, I have never seen in my entire life even as much as 1 minute of the movie. But I love the way it looks as a cake and I would fit right in with your kids fighting over the arms and legs :-D
    It's such a gorgeous cake!!

      Ah! looking at your bio, I just realized we live in the same state, maybe the same big cities! Maybe I can ask you this before I go run around town, have you seen the new creator nail polish from Illamasqua anywhere?

  8. Oh wow!! Your Spongebob is amazing!! Do you know how I decorated my son's Spongebob cake?? I bought Play-dough stampers in Spongebob characters and plopped them on top of a blue frosted cake! Lol. That wa a rough year, and not my best cake decorating effort at all. My son loved it, but I am making a note to self to NEVER show him your daughter's! :)
