Spongebob Squarepants

A cake I enjoyed making, for the most part. If not for the toddler who woke at 12:30 a.m. (while I was caking) and decided to stay awake until 4:00 a.m., this would have been a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

But this was still a fun cake! It was made for dh's, coworker's, daughter's 7th birthday party. Confusing enough for you? It was also my 2nd paid cake.
They'd requested a cake large enough to serve 20-25 people, but this cake could have easily served 55-60. It was HUGE! 4 inches tall and about 16 inches long. I really wanted to nail this cake, mainly because good quality equals more interest and referrals. I think I did.

The lettering was the biggest pain in the ass! I need more practice using my new Tappits cutters and allow myself plenty of time to work with them (rather than right before the cake was picked up). Oh, and I hate his hands, but overall, I'm VERY pleased.
Details: Vanilla cake w/ buttercream frosting tinted yellow. Completely covered and decorated with mmf.

You did an excellent job. I wouldn't of even paid attention to his hand if you didn't point it out.
