SpongeBob is the birthday boy’s favorite character so I made him a 3D spongeBob cake. SpongeBob figurine is approx 6″ tall with two thumbs up for turning 2 years old. The cake was a two layer 7.5″ x 4″ filled with fresh banana and whipped white chocolate frosting. The cake was covered with marbleized blue fondant to symbolize the sea and with orange splat and green floaty to accentuate SpongeBob’s colors.
I was approached by Jamie from Coquette Events to make a basketball themed desserts for one year old birthday party. This was one exciting order since I was asked to make several different desserts. I created a basketball themed giant cupcake with fondant topper, cupcake fondant toppers, basketball cake pops, basketball cookies and Jordan III sugar cookies. The photos were taken by Greg Ma.
Our desserts were also featured on On to Baby.
This was my first attempt on creating a figurine like this with fondant. The eyes, brows and mouth were painted by hand.
One mistake I made was moving the figurine a little too much after it dried so the boy’s left leg cracked. It is important not to move or reposition the dried fondant too much to avoid breakage. The beach boy figurine was made with 100% fondant. Can you imagine how it will look on top of the cake. I loved how it turned out.
