Spongebob Square Pants Party Cake!

After making my youngest son a Tigger cake for his second birthday, my middle son wanted a special cake for his fourth. I asked him what he wanted, and the simple answer was "SPONGEBOB!!"

So again, I baked a simple buttercake recipe - easily found online - in a large square tin. I printed out a picture of Spongebob and enlarged the picture. I then used it for a cutting template and for the final design pictures.

I really didn't think this one was going to come together, as I had difficulty with the brown and the green between his sponge bits. So I actually frosted him once, then wiped all the frosting off, then frosted him again!! I was up until nearly 3am finishing it off for a party the next morning!!

The black frosting was easier the second time around, as I now knew that I needed a large amount of colorant, and used a buttercream vanilla icing, made from scratch. I used a star piping bag, which made it a lengthy process, but I feel the outcome was good.

At the end of the day, there where gasps when I showed our friends and family, and a very happy 4-year-old boy!

If you need a little assistance in putting together a cake, the following instructions may assist you:

Instructions on Creating a Krusty Krab SpongeBob SquarePants Cake

Items Needed:

  • Krusty Krab Cake Topper – Includes SpongeBob, Patrick, Eugene and a Carry Case Krusty Krab Shack
  • Two Boxes Yellow Cake Mix
  • White Icing
  • Round Cake Pan
  • Square Cake Pan
  • White Fondant
  • Red Fondant
  • Yellow Fondant
  • Blue Fondant
  • Blue Writing Icing
  • Yellow Writing Icing
  • Green Writing Icing

Step 1: Create the batter from the yellow cake mixes and place some in the round cake pan and some in the square cake pan, bake, and allow to cool.

Step 2: Once the cakes have cooled, place the square cake on a cake tray.

Step 3: Take the round cake and cut one side so that it is flat. Place it on top of the square cake and ensure that the flat side of the round cake is lined up with one of the sides of the square cake.

Step 4: Roll out strips of the white fondant and the yellow fondant and place the strips next to each other. Then, roll them out together so that there is a white and yellow marbleized effect.

Step 5: Ice the entire cake – top round cake and bottom square cake – with the white icing.

Step 6: Cut out a piece of the yellow and white fondant and place on the top of the round cake. Then, cut out a piece that will fit on what is showing of the square cake and place it.

Step 7: Roll out strips of the white and blue fondant to create a marbleized effect, ensuring there is more blue than white. Place strips of this on the sides of the top round cake and sides of the bottom square cake.

Step 8: Use the red fondant to create little pieces of under the sea coral and place them on various locations of the cake.

Step 9: Use the yellow writing icing to draw star symbols along all sides of the cake. Use the blue writing icing to create circles in various locations on the sides of each cake that look like bubbles.

Step 10: Use the green writing icing to create seaweed and plants in various locations on the sides of the cake. Step 11: Take the blue writing icing and create a beautiful border all along the bottom of the square cake.

Step 12: Place the Krusty Krab Shack and SpongeBob and Eugene on the top of the round cake. Then, place Patrick on the top of the square cake.

As you can see, to create truly magnificent and memorable SpongeBob cakes, there are a lot of steps and the process can be a bit time consuming. However, the cake is sure to be a hit at your next birthday celebration and is sure to create a lot of memories.
