I made this Spongebob cake for a family friend’s 16th birthday! Spongebob was made of 2 layers of 11×15 marble sheet cakes with chocolate icing in between. The legs of his shorts were made with cupcake bottoms. I then made homemade marshmallow fondant and tinted a good sized amount with Wilton Golden Yellow. I covered Spongebob in the fondant and using a small fondant roller, made the indentations around the sides.

I used the same fondant to make his nose (secured with a lollipop stick), cheeks and arms. I added some green to some of the yellow to make the spots and gently pressed down on them when applied to give them an indentation look as well. I used some of the white fondant to make his shirt, socks, eyeballs and teeth. I tinted a small amounts with sky blue for his pupils, royal blue for the ribbon, pink for his tongue, and no taste red for his tie.

I tinted what was left with brown for the shorts and black for the other details. His shoes were made from the black fondant, but I painted them with the coloring gel to make them shiny. Using the end of a lollipop stick, I made the freckles on his cheeks with no taste red gel. I then made the “flower clouds” with icing tinted violet, rose, sky blue and (light) leaf green. She absolutely loved it!
