If you would have asked me two months ago what I knew about Spongebob, I would have replied that he is yellow. That's it. If you would have asked me to draw him, I would not even know where to begin! Well, last week I had the honor of PIPING him onto cookies and cupcakes. My husband thinks I'm absolutely crazy. I have never considered myself "artistic" and I even struggle with sidewalk chalk drawings (although my son would disagree).
When Traci asked me to do some cupcakes and cookies for her son's 5th Birthday, I happily took on the challenge!!! I've never even watched an episode of the show! I did my usual internet scouring for inspiration and also DVR'd an episode. Here's my take on the yellow dude.
That sea of yellow (kind of reminiscent of those Lego cookies).
I kept the first frosting coat smooth so his features would pop.
There he is. Whew.
My favorite part?
Whoa - Spongebob-o-rama!
I broke it up with some sparkly number 5s.
I like the color combo.
And you know how much I like that sparkle!
Onto the cupcakes...two dozen yellow for the party. I used this book for the yummy recipe..
There are so many recipes to choose from!!!
Not completely naked...but needs more!
Hi! I made a dozen Spongebobs...
...and piped some "water" on the other dozen
to top with cut out fives from fondant.
I love the combo!!!
Spongebob can be somewhat sophisticated!
Happy 5th Birthday, Brock!!!
Hope it was fun!
