How to Make a Spongebob Cake with Fondant

Cakes are for all occasions. However, cakes are more special when decorated and formed into cute designs and are given during a child’s birthday party. There are many ways in which you can design your little kid’s birthday cake, but if you kid happens to like Spongebob Squarepants like most of today’s kids, make him/her a Spongebob cake. So, here is how to make a Spongebob cake with fondant.

Note: This will not cover the basic instructions and even the ingredients of making the base cake to be used. This procedural guide will help you form the actual Spongebob cake and not how to bake the cake.


Step 1: Bake two (2) 10 inch chocolate cakes or any cake flavor you want as long as they are of the required size. Then, divide each cake equally in two using a very sharp knife. Once done, tort each piece of cake.

Step 2: Pile the layers of each cake over the other. Spread a good amount of mint chip buttercream and fudge over each layer before putting another layer on top.

Step 3: Cut your dowels into the appropriate height for the cake and insert them into the stacked cake layers.

Step 6: In order to have a proper place where you can place the Spongebob cake to sit comfortably and safely, cut a piece of cardboard with 1 inch + the cake’s length and 1 inch + the cake’s width. Once don, stack a cake on top of the other.

Step 7: Carve the cake in order to make the form appear to be Spongebob like. After that, cover it with buttercream.

Step 8: To create an appealing Spongebob, it must look real. Therefore, even the bumps on the edges of Spongebob’s body must be copied. Use a melon baller or a spoon to do this.

Step 9: Push a wooden dowel with a sharpened end through the cake’s center until the other end of the dowel is level with the cake’s surface.

Step 10: Decorate your cake. It is now high time to use fondant. Drape a yellow colored fondant on the cake and cut it using an exacto knife in order to get the perfect fit and shape Spongebob.

Step 11: Cut a brown colored fondant using a ribbon cutter in order to make Spongebob’s pants.

Step 12: Cut a white colored fondant using a ribbon cutter to make his shirt.

Step 13: Use a rolling pin or a small bottle bottom to create depressions into the body of Spongebob.

Step 14: Cut the eyes of Spongbob with a round cutter out of a fondant with the right color. Hand made the mouth, feet, and legs of Spongebob using fondant and sticks it to the appropriate parts,

Step 15: Roll cylindrical yellow fondants and insert them into the body of Spongebob for his nose and arms and secure them in place using skewers.

Now you are all done with the Spongebob cake, all you have to do is place some more decoration on the cardboard where the cake is placed and you are ready to serve your creation.
