Spongebob Squarepants Birthday Cake
For my first cake of the new year, I had a Spongebob-themed quarter sheet for a first birthday. I don't have much experience with the cartoon (I might have seen an episode or two), but I know the two main characters are Spongebob (of course) and his buddy Patrick.
I started with a layer of chocolate and a layer of yellow cake (my client's preference) and filled it with vanilla buttercream.
As I usually do with my other hand-drawn designs, I scored the design in with a sharp tool then went over it with the appropriate colors. I heated up some water in a mug and dipped my spatula in it, so I could smooth out the surfaces. And after some time and patience... voila!
