Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? A large number of young and old people alike know the answer is SpongeBob SquarePants. The slightly naive, very square in shape cartoon character has adventures with his friend Patrick and other sea dwelling creatures. The smiling, squishy little man and his home make for a whimsical cake for parties of all ages.
Decorated Sheet Cake
For a large party, a sheet cake is often in order. The large, singular layer cake feeds a crowd and is fairly flat on top, allowing for uniform frosting. For a SpongeBob house cake, begin with blue icing to represent the surrounding sea. Draw the outline of a pineapple in the centre of the cake using brown icing and fill it in with yellow frosting. Use a toothpick or butter knife to create lines across the pineapple shape, forming diamond shapes. Create a pineapple top with thick green frosting. Draw a door and window with brown icing to complete the pineapple house.
Shaped Cake Pan
Shaped cake pans are available commercially at crafting and cooking stores, To make a SpongeBob house, select a pineapple-shaped cake pan. Bake a cake, from a mix or scratch, in the pan. After cooling, place on a serving dish. Cut out an arch shape at the bottom for the door and a circle close to the top for the window. Use yellow or yellow-orange icing for the body and green for the top. Add blue icing on the serving plate around the cake to indicate the pineapple being under the sea.
Pineapple Under the Sea
For a twist on the SpongeBob house, use a real pineapple. Bake a cake using a large bundt cake pan. Cover the cake with blue icing to make the sea. Cut off the top of a pineapple and remove the interior fruit. Put the top back onto the gutted pineapple and place in the centre of the cake. Cut the gutted fruit into chunks and place around the edges and on top of the cake. A SpongeBob figure standing on the cake next to the pineapple gives a finishing touch to the idea.
Create a SpongeBob house cake from a sheet cake and a real pineapple. Cut a baked sheet cake into the shape of a pineapple, but without the top. It will appear much like an oval with a flat top and bottom. Cut out a small arch at the bottom for the door and a circle toward the top for a window. Cut off the top of a pineapple and remove the fruit from inside. Cut the fruit into chunks or crush it. Spread the fruit on top in lieu of frosting the cake. Lay the top of the pineapple at the top of the cake and gently press to keep it in place.
