Last week, I taught you how to make Krabby Patties. This week I’m showing you how to make a SpongeBob SquarePants cake.
The cake underneath was a 9 x 13 inch sponge cake – but you could make any rectangular cake you liked, or even buy a sheet cake from a supermarket. Then cut off a few inches from the bottom and make two smaller rectangles for feet.
You then need about 500g of bright yellow fondant, 200g (or so) of brown, a some white, some pale blue, some black, some red and some burgundy.
You can dye the fondant yourself, if you like. To do this you add dye to white ready-to-roll icing. Make sure you buy gel colours (I like these) rather than liquid if you’re going to dye your fondant, and I really recommend that you buy the yellow and the black. The yellow because it’s important to get that really bright colour for SpongeBob, and the black because it’s REALLY difficult to dye black fondant properly.
I could talk you through the instructions on how to make this cake, but it’s MUCH easier if you just watch the video! It’s nowhere near as hard as it may seem. The good thing about this particular SpongeBob SquarePants cake is that apart from a few fiddly details it’s all straight lines and circles, which you can cut out with a ruler, knife and some biscuit cutters. I am not artistic and I am not the best at cake decoration, but even I managed to make a halfway decent cake.

Or, y’know, just book tickets to go see it. If you make this cake, please send me a photo! And if you send it to me on Twitter, you can tag it #SpongeBobMovie
