SpongeBob Squarepants has always been my grandson’s favorite cartoon character. So it wasn’t a surprise that he requested this theme for his birthday party.
Two chocolate cakes (his choice) were baked in 9 x 13 inch pans for the head and body.
Fondant used for the white eyes, teeth, red tongue, with blue fondant eye balls give him that smiling hello to the partying kids.
Mini donuts created his shoes and pant tops. Large pretzel rods were covered in fondant for his legs and arms.
To keep my fingers from looking yellowish red for the next week, I wore disposable gloves while mixing the colors into the fondant.
Fruit rollups created the tie & belt on chocolate frosted pants. Rice Krispie treats shaped the hands and fingers and covered in fondant. Wilton’s food writer pens gave an edible birthday message on the fruit rollups.
Blue jello jigglers held the candles and gummy bears were added for snacking until the cake was cut.
Here’s looking at you grandma! Half the fun of eating the cake is picking out what part they want to eat.
My inspiration came from the many great ideas shown on this Coolest Birthday Cake website. I’d love to hear about your cake creations and any questions or suggestions you may have for shaped cakes.
