Sponge Bob Cake

Ok, enough of that. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.
I just wanted to show you a cute little cake I made for my son who turned 7. He wanted a Super Mario Cake..But I pushed for Sponge Bob(even though we don’t watch it) cake because I knew it would be easy to make. And it was. This was the easiest cake I have made so far. It only took about 2 1/2 hours to do. Much less than the 10 hours it took me to make this cake!

Fun stuff!

    Hey, loved the brussel spouts, posted them on my blog and linked you. Also linked your wonderful sugar cookie decor in the post before that one. You just rock. That's all. 😉

  16. 16

    I was hoping you could answer an existential question that's been bothering me: Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

    Sorry couldn't resist. Amazing job you did. I bet he was thrilled.

    um, you are pretty much amazing. Way to go!

  18. 18

    Very nice job, Leslie! Btw, that's funny that you convinced your son to go with spongebob instead of mario.

    Hope you had a wonderful and delicious Easter!

    Wow, great job Leslie! What a nice mom you are : ) I agree, Sponge Bob would be SO much easier than Super Mario Brothers.

  20. 20

    Are you rich and famous from all this yet? My good golly heavens sakes alive (I am doing penance for my Easter cartoon that I posted), but you are really good at this. When you hit the big time, make sure you put in a big plug for your very amazing single friend here in California okay? This is adorable. My kids grew up on Sesame Street. I love Sponge Bob, the humor kills me. I hope Easter was lovely for you and your family. And a big happy birthday to your son.

    he's perfect, leslie. i've NEVER seen an episode or even a second of the show, but i know he's wacky to look at and an ideal design for a kiddie cake…if you can pull it off. which you clearly can. 🙂

    You are so TALENTED! We don't watch Sponge Bob either but my kids would be thrilled if I made this cake for them. NICELY DONE!

  35. 35

    It freaks me out how much my kids love Sponge Bob – and I don't even let them watch it! Somehow they have gotten a sneak peak and they love him. Anyway, incredible job with the cake! I am so impressed.

    Its so cute! My kids weren't in the Sponge Bob era….they were in the Teenage Mutant Ninja and Power Ranger time….and I did make them a Ninja turtle cake one year – very time consuming!

    This is the cutest cake ever!

    Hi. Happy birthday to your son. I loved your cake! Im going to make a sponge bob cake to my nephew next week, May I ask how you made the convolutions (I hope that is the right word 🙂 ) on the borders?
    Thanks a lot…

  54. 54

    Kirmizi…I made the cake in a 9 x 13 pan and then cut the cake to the desired shape with a knife. Easy peasy
