Perfect for parties, and...little kids. And me.

Step 1: The cake

You have several options for the actual cake. You can buy a blank sheet cake, make it from a mix, or do it the good old-fashioned honest way and make it from stratch like I did.

To make it from stratch, you need:

2 1/3 cups self-rising or all purpose flour (if you do not have this or are not sure if it is self rising, use a teaspoon of baking soda)

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 cup shortening (I was out, so I used vegetable oil. You could also use butter.)

1 cup milk (I was out of this as well. So I used a half cup of evaporated milk and a half cup of water.)

1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring ( I used vanilla extract. You should read recipes more carefully than I do.)

2 eggs

Mix the flour, sugar and shortening well. Add milk and flavoring gradually, scraping bowl frequently. Add eggs. Beat for 2 more minutes.

Take baking pan and grease with butter, oil or pam. Flour lightly. Pour batter into 9" pans. Bake for approx. 35 minutes at 350 degrees.
I love spongbob cake! I made one using rice crispie treats & candy-licorice, airheads for the tongue/socks/tie and sandwich cookies for hands/feet. I rolled his pants in sweetened cocoa powder to make brown and outlined with the black can of icing that resembles cheese wiz ( in the way it dispenses.) A total hit at the party. It was all everyone could talk about.
Wow - that's awesome! Thanks for taking the time to show that (have you considered an ible, or at least a slideshow?)!
I was thinking about Fondant and chocolate cake so all i would need is blue black and white icing<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://candy.about.com/od/fondantcreamfillings/r/uncookedfondant.htm">mmm</a><br/>
Ooooo, that sounds good! If you do something like that, be sure to post it! (And link me :D )

Very Nice Cake I Would Make That Cake!
Thank you! If you do make it, I'd love to see pictures!
really cool but one of the pics has spongebob with YELLOW teeth (someone forgot to brush...)
Well, that was before I filled them in with white. ;)
yah, it was just funny. and you reply very quickly!!!!
That looks like a serious sugar-bomb.
It sure is!
Sweet! <br/>A character cake that <em>by definition</em> doesn't need to be trimmed from its original rectangle. You, sir, are a genius of efficiency.<br/>
Thank you! (That's ma'am. Not sir.:))
:-) The cake sounds good.....the character is one I am not fond of however, but if it gets eaten....I can deal with that LOL
I find him a bit rude at times. :-)
sponge is not rude you are
It is rude to post my point of view? ;-) I certainly did not mean to be brusque.
What do you have against the sponge? :-)
Nothing in particular....I just find him more annoying than, say Jimmy Neutron LOL (egads aren't I too old for this conversation LOL).
I hate Jimmy Neutron Lol...
Same here.... ;-)
oohhhh me to
Apologies - people make the same mistake with me, so I'm sympathetic. ;)
Oh, no biggie. :)
Thank you so much! :)
He's so cute!!! I think that the yellow should be a little more than half, but he is a cake, so you can't be too picky. Great instructable. It was cool how you included your recipes in the instructable.
Thank you!
good instructable. but his belt (the four black rectangle on the brown)should be closer to his shirt
Yeah, but not very much closer...
Its a spongebob squarecake!
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea...spongebob squarecake!

GorillazMiko, I just realized what your picture is! it's a picture of bucket head right? that awesome guitarist who doesn't show his identity! Also, to Adrian Monk- cool instructable, everyone loves spongebob!
Yep. It's Buckethead. ;-)
Thanks guys! :)
What's with the "it looks creepy" comment? This is GREAT! I should be so talented. I'm definitely making this cake.
