Spongebob Squarepants Charity Cake

I was approached last fall about a fundraiser for KidsPeace in Kingston, NY.  I have done fundraisers before, and am always more than willing to donate a gift certificate for a silent auction, or help in ways that I can.  The woman that won the bid for the gift certificate has triplet grandkids, and although they each get their own cake (which I love), she wanted to have an additional special cake for them to get excited about.  Being that her birthday is the same week, it would be her cake, but she chose a design that the kids would go nuts for... Spongebob Squarepants.

Now, you know me... a kid's themed cake where I get to make figurines... it doesnt get much better for me!

Here he is... Who lives in a pineapple under the see? SPONGE-BOB-SQUARE-PANTS!!!

And here he is with his buddy Patrick on top of his sea cake.

 He looks happy to be there!

It was a fun cake to do, and I'm so glad I could help out with the fundraiser.  The cake itself was marble, with vanilla pudding and fresh strawberry filling.  It was crumb coated with vanilla buttercream and covered with fondant.  As always, I sculpted the figures by hand out of dyed fondant.

It's apparently cake season... I have 2 more definites on the way... and 2 other tentatives! :-) Looking forward to sharing them all with you!
