My sister and I made a 16x24" Spongebob Squarepants cake this week for Mila, who turned 4 yesterday. I’ve never actually watched the show, but I do know of him, both through Mila and courtesy of my friendly neighborhood and worldwide media outlets. Jay Leno points out that although some may not know who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, they do know who lives in a pineapple under the sea.
I'm no cake decorator as you've perhaps by now noticed, ("practice makes perfect," says Luc) but it was fun to turn flour, eggs, sugar, and butter into a giant cartoon sponge. When asked why Spongebob and not one of his beloved superheroes, Mila divulged a greater plan; next year is Spiderman, followed by Batman. I'm glad to have a nephew who thinks these things through and plans ahead. I've got a year to practice.
I present for your amusement a picture of the finished lovely, followed by the spoils, entitled Fear and Loathing in a Pineapple Under the Sea.
