This cake was so much fun to do! But let's start with what's inside it... it was a vanilla cake filled with a banana mousse and iced in a vanilla bean Italian meringue buttercream. I made up the recipes for the cake and the mousse and both worked quite well, although I plan to fine tune the cake recipe a bit further still!
The cake was not covered in fondant but iced in a turquoise tinted buttercream, which I love because it tastes so much better than fondant! The figures are made from gumpaste and let me tell you that you just don't understand how detailed SpongeBob SquarePants is until you try to make him out of gumpaste!
The pineapple was made from rice cereal treats covered in fondant with assorted gumpaste accessories scattered around the cake in the SpongeBob theme... I really loved how this cake turned out!
Happy Birthday Naima!
