We recently created a SpongeBob SquarePants cake with SpongeBob and Patrick sitting at a table in the Krusty Krab and sharing a Krabby Patty.
Here’s how we made SpongeBob with Rice Krispies Treats and fondant.
The first step was that we made paper dolls.
No, we really made paper dolls. We made simple paper models of SpongeBob, Patrick, the Krabby Patty and the Krusty Krab table to make sure they were all the same scale.
Here’s SpongeBob’s body made out of Rice Krispies Treats.
Once the Rice Krispies Treats had hardened, we used a paring knife to get rid of all of the rounded edges.
It’s SpongeBob in Carbonite!
SpongeBob’s face isn’t flat, so we used fondant to make the raised portions of his face. The only reason it’s green is that we had green fondant left over.
Little known trivia, SpongeBob screen tested for Disney’s Pinocchio.
SpongeBob’s nose is long enough that it wouldn’t stand on it own, so we used a wooden dowel to give it added support.
Here’s the nose covered with fondant.
No SpongeBob didn’t meet up with a low flying chicken; Those are two balls of white fondant.
We added just enough blue to make Sinatra jealous.
It’s amazing how much the pupils add to the face.
I tawt I taw a puddy tat!
We filled in SpongeBob’s mouth with red.
All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth…
We gave SpongeBob’s pants.
SpongeBob looking snazzy with his shirt and tie.
Here’s the barrel SpongeBob’s will be sitting on in the Krusty Krab.
The question is, how do we get SpongeBob to stay in his seat?
I think SpongeBob will get the point.
Can you say ouch?
Here’s SpongeBob seated.
Remember how we used wooden dowels to support SpongeBob’s nose? We did the same thing with his arms. We inserted two dowels and covered them with yellow fondant. If you look carefully, you might be able to see that SpongeBob also has legs now.
I got shoes, you got shoes…
SpongeBob’s shoes kept falling off, so we used toothpicks to hold them on.
Here’s the final product.
