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.
