How To Make A SpongeBob SquarePants Cake Topper

SpongeBob SquarePants

We recently created a SpongeBob SquarePants cake with SpongeBob and Patrick sitting at a table in the Krusty Krab and sharing a Krabby Patty. 

 

How To Make SpongeBob Cake Topper

 

Here’s how we made SpongeBob with Rice Krispies Treats and fondant.

 Paper Model

 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. 

First Rice Krispie Treat SpongeBob

Here’s SpongeBob’s body made out of Rice Krispies Treats.

Cut Rice Krispie Treat SpongeBob

Once the Rice Krispies Treats had hardened, we used a paring knife to get rid of all of the rounded edges.  

SpongeBob in Carbonite

 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.

 SpongeBob Pinocchio

 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.

SpongeBob with Fondant Nose

Here’s the nose covered with fondant.

  

 

SpongeBob with Egg Eyes

No SpongeBob didn’t meet up with a low flying chicken; Those are two balls of white fondant.

Old Blue Eyed SpongeBob

We added just enough blue to make Sinatra jealous.

SpongeBob with Pupils

It’s amazing how much the pupils add to the face.

SpongeBob with Eye Lashes

 I tawt I taw a puddy tat!

 SpongeBob with red mouth

We filled in SpongeBob’s mouth with red.

SpongeBob gets teeth

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth…

SpongeBob with Pants

We gave SpongeBob’s pants. 

 

SpongeBob with Shirt & Tie

SpongeBob's Chair

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?

The answer…

Wooden Dowel

I think SpongeBob will get the point.

SpongeBob Impailed

Can you say ouch?

SpongBob Seated

Here’s SpongeBob seated.

SpongeBob with arms

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.

SpongeBob with shoes

I got shoes, you got shoes…

SpongeBob’s shoes kept falling off, so we used toothpicks to hold them on.

SpongeBob & Patrick

Here’s the final product.
