I don’t know why but there is a stage where kids literally become obsessed with SpongeBob…and my son is living it!!
Since my son was born and until he turned 3 years old I always decided the themes for his birthday cakes based on the cartoons that were attractive to him but when he was going to turn 4 his decision was radical: a SpongeBob cake.
To be honest SpongeBob it’s not my favorite..too much drama for a cartoon, in my mind I already had planned a Paw Patrol cake but he totally refused, for him SpongeBob is the best of the best..so I had no choice, I had to please my favorite little costumer and make him happy with the cake that he chose for the first time..and this mommy is a little bit nostalgic because her baby is already growing up and taking his own decisions..Okay, okay lets go back to the cake LOL
Here’s a picture of the SpongeBob cake:
I almost forgot to take a picture of the cake, so this is a last minute one..here some details about this cake:
- It was a rectangular 9 x 13 vanilla cake filled with pineapple jam and buttercream icing..I don’t know if you have noticed but SpongeBob is wider at the top so a cut a little bit of the corners of the bottom to give a more SpongeBob shape.
- The cake was covered and decorated with Homemade Marshmallows Fondant except for the brown, red and black which was prefabricated fondant.
- The eyes were made using round cutters and I free hand made the rest of the details.
- For the holes in SpongeBob’s body I used the back of a measuring spoons set.
- For the name I used the Wilton Alphabet and Numbers Fondant Cut-Outs set that you can find here
Its hard to express how excited my son was with his cake so to give you an idea here you have a picture of my beloved little man cutting his cake and also a picture of some cake leftovers:
Although I am not a big SpongeBob fan I must admit that to make this cake was really funny and also it was easier than I thought…but the best thing of all was to know that my favorite client was satisfied and happy on his birthday number 4, now let’s wait to see what he’s going to chose next year!!
Thank you for reading!!
