Spongebob Cupcakes with Frosting

spongebob cupcake

I love Spongebob Squarepants and would come home each afternoon to watch each program. Childish fun with some adult humour is how i viewed the tv program. I decided its about time i created a Spongebob cupcake. The cupcake itself is really straightforward as its a simple vanilla cupcake recipe. The frosting however is premade (just buy it from the supermarket) and i also use some white royal icing along with food coloring to get the blue eyes and brown pants.

Everything “on” the plate is edible, including the writing. its made from a gel that you squeeze from a sort of gel pen.

How many of you like Spongebob? Or am i the only Spongebob fan. Comment and let me know below.

The hardest part about this cupcake is getting the shapes right. I use a fondant set to help shape the edges. i would say the eyelashes probably took the longest time to make so delicate and really hard to position right. They kept slipping off the Spongebob face. But I got there in the end and am very proud of my effort. I find its easiest if you take a small amount of black icing and roll it between your thumb and index finger to get a nice long eyelash.
