  • Welcome to How to Cook That I am Ann Reardon ohhhhh who lives in a pineapple under the

  • sea? Sponge Bob square pants... Yes this week it's a sponge bob cake

  • And to start with make two trays of cake I'm using my red velvet cake recipe. I'll put

  • a link in the description below to this weeks blog post which will have the recipe for the

  • cake and the amounts of fondant that you need and the videos for all of those. You can use

  • the chocolate cake or the sponge cake and I'll link to all of those there.

  • Once the cakes are completely cooled you need to cut them in half and then cut each half

  • into 3 pieces. You need to do that with both of your cakes and these will make all of the

  • pieces you need for sponge bobs body.

  • Place some frosting onto a cake board and then a layer of cake. I am using cream cheese

  • frosting between the layers of this because it goes well with the red velvet. and that

  • recipe video is also on my channel.

  • On each layer of cake I also like to brush a small amount of simple syrup this is just

  • equal quantities of sugar and water and instead of water here I've used the left over cherry

  • syrup from the cherries that I used in the cake. And this just helps keep the cake really

  • moist and really yummy. It doesn't make it soggy it just makes it moist.

  • Because this is a tall cake it's going to need some support. Poke a cake pop stick into

  • the cake until it hits the base and then trim it off at that level, so the level of the

  • top of cake. And then cut three more stick to that same level and push them all back

  • into the cake. Then add a cake board that is slightly smaller than the cake top and

  • continue to stack the cake. I get so many questions when I show you how to do this saying

  • how do I eat that and won't I get cardboard in my mouth?

  • As with any large cake you slice it up to eat it you cut it into slices when you slice

  • this once you'd slice down to the cardboard layer and cut those slices off the top then

  • once you've finished that section remove the board and supports and cut the next layer

  • into slices. All tall cakes, wedding cakes and tiered cakes all have support like this.

  • If you haven't been the person cutting it up then you just probably haven't seen it

  • before. It just stops the weight of the cake on top from squashing the layers at the bottom.

  • Once you've stacked it all the way up to the top hold your printout in front of the cake

  • and trim around it. I'll put a link to the spongebob picture in the size that I am using

  • on my website so you can print it in the same size.

  • Next cut chunks out of the sides of the cake so you have that rough rounded sponge look

  • to it.

  • Now cover the whole thing in a layer of frosting, I am using american buttercream for this part

  • because it is better under fondant that the cream cheese is. To make this quicker you

  • can use a piping bag like I am here to pipe a layer over the cake, then smooth it with

  • a spatula. Once it is completely covered put it in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up.

  • While it is chilling place some non-stick baking paper over the print out. Roll a ball

  • of white and cut it in half to give you two even pieces for your eyes. Roll each of those

  • into a ball and put it on the template and round it and squash it slightly using the

  • palm of your hand and round it some more and keep doing that until it is just the right

  • size and nice and round. Do that with the other side as well

  • For his teeth roll out some white and trim the fondant to the width of the teeth that

  • you can see on the template there. but make them taller than you need so that we can poke

  • them in later on. We don't want them too big though, just cut it above where you want them,

  • on the same curve, just a little bit taller.

  • For the iris of his eye roll out some blue and cut out a circle I always like to make

  • three, I know there are only two eyes. so I can choose the best two. Take some blue

  • powdered colour and brush it around on two sides so that it leaves a lighter patch at

  • the top and the bottom.

  • Roll a ball of black and squash it in the centre of the eye for his pupil. Then you

  • want to take a tiny tiny ball of white and add it just to the edge for that sparkle in

  • his eye. Squash it down using the end of a paint brush. And you can see the difference

  • that little bit of the white makes they eye look alive compared to the one without it.

  • Put a tiny dab of water onto the eyeball and add the coloured part gently putting it into

  • place.

  • If you follow me on social media then you'll know How To Cook That has been chosen as a

  • nominee in the 2014 Taste Awards in two different categories

  • I'd love it if you could vote because this is decided purely by the public, so by you.

  • I'll put a link below so you can find that because it is a bit hard to find the voting

  • form on there. You'll need to scroll down to categories 5

  • &12: Which is best Home Chef in a Series and

  • Best Instructional Web Series. Thank you so much for that you guys for helping

  • me out with that you are awesome

  • Roll out some black fondant and using a pizza cutter cut thin strips. Place your print out

  • underneath and trim them to make the eye lashes. They are very big eyelashes

  • Then do the same thing with his belt. Don't forget to make more belt bits you don't just

  • need them for the front you need them for the back and the side of sponge bob too.

  • Now lets make his arms and his legs I am adding tylose powder to the fondant. This makes it

  • dry out faster. You just add some in and massage it through until it is well combined.

  • Roll out one arm leaving one end fat, if you don't have tylose you can make these details

  • a couple of days ahead and just let them dry out that way. But if you want to do it all

  • on the one day you are going to need the tylose powder to get these to dry out that fast.

  • Squash up the fat end a bit more and then flatten it out, this will be his hand. Make

  • three cuts, yes, he only has 4 fingers. Then separate the fingers and smooth them around,

  • his fingers are a bit fatter at the ends. A bit like a gecko but not so flat. And so

  • just use your fingers to seperate each one and smooth it round there. Now if you put

  • your hand flat on the bench you'll see your thumb sits out to one side away from the fingers

  • so just arrange his hand like that. Make sure when you do that that the other hand his thumb

  • goes on the opposite side, I made two right hands today so not quite right

  • Now we want that to set with the wrist up at an angle, the easiest way to do that is

  • to lie the arm down and prop up the hand by leaning that baking paper against a wall.

  • Now for his little legs roll some white and yellow, cut the end off each to make it straight

  • and join them together, roll it a little bit more using your fingers just to smooth out

  • that join. And then trim it to the right length and repeat for

  • the other leg. I have added tylose powder to this bit of white as well.

  • Roll a super skinny snake of blue and I mean tiny place it next to the leg and roll the

  • leg over all the way around until it joins up with the other end of the blue. Trim it

  • off and repeat with the other leg, then add the red in just the same way. and leave the

  • legs to harden.

  • For his shoes roll out some grey and cut rectangles in the size of the sole of his shoe. Trim

  • off each corner to round it and then cut a chunk out of the side at one end so you're

  • defining where the sole of his shoe is. Roll out some more grey and cut out a square, cut

  • two corners off and round out that side then add it for the heel of the shoe.

  • Take some black, roll it into a ball then using your little finger just press slightly

  • in the middle and roll it in the middle and roll it there to make a weird jelly bean shape

  • like this. Add it to the sole and using your finger pull it down to join the base. Take

  • the smooth end of the paintbrush and make a hole a little bit larger than the width

  • of his leg in the shoe. Make sure it is big enough because we will add the leg into the

  • shoe later and we don't want it to be too small.

  • For his nose roll out some fondant making it round and fatter and one end. Then add

  • piece of spaghetti into the middle. This is going to give it the support it needs so that

  • when it sticks out of the cake it is not just going to sag down or break off.

  • Place that into a cup and leave it to dry out.

  • Now back to the cake, roll out some brown fondant so that it is long enough to wrap

  • the whole way around the body. Trim it to make it straight on one edge, then trim bigger

  • than we want it to be. You can see the brown is very skinny but I want you to trim it right

  • up where the white goes rather than where the brown goes and we;ll just overlap it.

  • Wrap it around the base of the cake, at the back squeeze it together at the back and using

  • scissors trim it off.

  • Because he has square pants make the corners at the base look sharp so use your fingers

  • to bring it together and pinch it in. so you get that nice straight line on each of your

  • corners.

  • Wrap the white around in exactly the same way pushing it together at the back and trimming

  • it off and the you can see here it is not straight that's OK just get a knife or a ruler

  • to push it up and make it straight line.

  • Now add the yellow over the top, smooth it out using your hand on the front of the cake

  • and the back of the cake and then on the sides pinch it together and trim off the excess.

  • Then use your finger to smooth down the join.

  • Hold the printout up against your cake so you know roughly where to cut then cut a wavy

  • edge along the front there. Don't push too hard we don't want to cut the white and the

  • brown fondant. We just want to cut the yellow so just gently cut and pull away the yellow

  • until it just comes off.

  • Use your fingers to push the fondant around the bumps on the sides of the cake and the

  • top of the cake. to make them more defined.

  • Using the printout mark where the middle of the mouth and each corner of the mouth is

  • then use a knife to cut out his smile. Lift the fondant forward of his top lip forward

  • a little bit and push his teeth into place making sure they are straight.

  • Next take something rounded if you don't have one of these rounded cake tools you can just

  • use a marble that will be fine. Just rub it on the cake to make an indent where they go

  • on his body don't forget to do the sides and back and top as well. We also want to make

  • big indents where his eyes go, they don't need to be deep, they just need to be wide.

  • So it gives us a little recess for putting his eyeballs in.

  • Add his eyes into place. If while you're going this and making room for his eye makes the

  • top lip sags a bit there then you are going to need to do some plastic surgery and just

  • trim it up with scissors to reshape it. You never knew you were a plastic surgeon. Roll

  • a ball of yellow and cut it in two and add in place for the cheeks. Then using a food

  • grade marker add three little dots to each cheek. If you don't have a marker you could

  • use some red food colour on the tip of a skewer instead.

  • Carefully add each of the eyelashes into place using a tiny bit of water to make it stick.

  • Don't use too much of you are going to get black doming off the fondant there.

  • Take some powdered food colour and brush a little into each hole, I am using a mixture

  • of green and silver colour and brush that in using a dry paint brush.

  • To make his tie cut out the shape from the print out then roll a ball of red and trim

  • it off straight for the top. Add the belt strips into place on the front of the cake,

  • then the tie and the top of the tie and then some white fondant for the collar to the front

  • of him.

  • Take a strip of brown and wrap it around the top of his leg, you can see how the leg is

  • already fairly firm that is because we used the tylose. trim it at an angle and add it

  • to the cake.

  • Lift his leg and place it into his little shoe.

  • Wrap some white around the top of his arm and then trim the top corners off the top

  • and use your finger to round it around so it looks like the shoulder on a t-shirt. Then

  • that up very carefully and add it to the side of the cake.

  • Repeat that with his other arm. And then add his nose poking it into the cake.

  • In the sponge bob movie, sponge bob out of the water he is one the beach in some of the

  • scenes so to make sand crush up some biscuits or cookie. If you use filled ones you'll get

  • like a wet sand, if you use unfilled it will be dry. Roll the rolling pin over it to get

  • rid of any lumps. Pipe a strip of buttercream around the edge

  • of the board, and the reason we do this is just to stop all the crumbs falling off everywhere.

  • Then add you crumbs over the board and around sponge bob.

  • Make a sand castle by pushing some crumbs into a medicine cup and tipping it out just

  • like you would with a real sand castle then add that to one side.

  • This cake is actually going to a charity auction which has the theme 'dream again' so I'm adding

  • a mini version of the book in the movie with the words dream again written on it just to

  • the front there
