Does Anyone Have any relatively simple cake ideas for a Spongebob style Luau ?

We have a back up plan of a spongebob cake from the supermarket. But we'd really like to make it ourselves, we were thinking of an erupting volcano cake, but its too complicated! Please post any ideas, recipes etc!

Details:

  1. make a spongebob cake out of a square cake pan with regular yellow cake mix and add a can of crushed pineapples to the mix..........use lemon frosting......it should be pretty easy.
  2. Spongebob Cake 1 box (18.25 oz.) yellow cake mix, prepared as pound cake 2 chocolate-coated, cream-filled snack cakes (Funny Bones or Ho Hos) 5 plain bread sticks 2 cans (16 oz. each) prepared vanilla frosting Yellow food coloring 1 sixteen-oz. can prepared milk-chocolate frosting 1 each blue, white, and red taffy strip (Air Heads) 2 brown candy-coated chocolates (M&M's) 1 cup prepared dark-chocolate frosting 3 pieces black licorice twists (Twizzlers) Red paste food coloring 1 strip strawberry Fruit by the Foot 3 large and 4 small yellow gumdrops, halved crosswise 4 chocolate-covered marshmallow cookies (Mallomars) Resealable pastry bag Toothpicks Prepare a 9- by 13-inch cake according to the package directions for the pound-cake version. Mark 1 3/4 inches and 3 1/4 inches up from one short end of the cake. Cut a small 1- by 3-inch wedge from the two bottom corners to be used for SpongeBob's hands. Step 2 Cut one snack cake and place it on the bottom edge of the cake to form the top of Bob's legs. Cut the other snack cake in half on a diagonal for Bob's upper arms. Trim the bread sticks for lower arms (3 inches), lower legs (4 inches), and nose (1 1/2 inches). Trim the thin side of the wedges you cut in Step 1: to 2-inch pieces for his hands. Step 3 Spoon 1 1/2 cups of vanilla frosting into a small bowl and cover. Tint the remaining vanilla frosting yellow. Spoon 3/4 of a cup of the yellow frosting into a resealable bag and set aside. Frost the largest section yellow. Frost the middle and upper arms with some of the white frosting. Frost the lowest section and upper legs with the milk-chocolate frosting. Step 4 Heat 1/4 cup of the vanilla frosting until it reaches the texture of slightly whipped cream. Dip the longer bread sticks in frosting to coat and place them on a cutting board to dry. Repeat the process with 1/2 cup of the yellow frosting. Dip the white legs in the yellow to cover half. Step 5 Eyes: Using a small juice glass, lightly press into the frosting to make an outline for Bob's eyes. Fill in the eyes with vanilla frosting. Cut 1-inch circles from the blue taffy for the center of the eyes and use chocolate candies for the pupils. Pipe an outline of dark-chocolate frosting around each eye. Cut the licorice to make eyelashes, and press on top of the eyes. Mouth: Use a toothpick to mark an outline for the mouth. Tint 3 tablespoons of the milk-chocolate frosting red, and spread inside the marked areas. Cut a 2-inch piece of red taffy and shape it like a tongue. Cut two rectangles of white taffy to make the teeth. Pipe an outline of dark-chocolate frosting around the mouth. Nose: Stick a toothpick in the cut end of the nosepiece and insert it into the cake at an angle. Cheeks and chin: Pipe a thick wavy border of yellow around the face and a circle of yellow on each cheek. Roll a thin line of red taffy for the chin and cheek outline. Press halved yellow gumdrops into the cake for the sponge holes. Clothes: Cut and assemble his tie from Fruit by the Foot strip. Pipe outline of his collar and tie. Press licorice pieces into chocolate frosting to make his belt. Step 6 Gently press the bread-stick arms into the upper arms. Attach the saluting arm with a toothpick to secure. Attach the hands with a toothpick. Place the bread-stick legs below the thighs with the yellow side closer to the cake. Roll thin pieces of red and blue taffy to form sock lines. Cut a 1/2-inch wedge from each of the two trimmed marshmallow cookies and attach the cookies (not the wedges) to the legs with a toothpick for his shoes. see link for more info and pic http://www.nickjr.com/food/character_food/spongebob/spongebob_cake.jhtml?minibar=true --------------------------------------------------- Chocolate Penutbutter Fishbowls Servings: Makes 10 peanut butter cups Prep Time: 1 hour Print this page Send to a friend 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (1 twelve-oz. bag), divided Peanut butter Pretzel goldfish crackers Equipment About 12 mini-muffin cups Small spoon (an infant spoon works well) Step 1 Place the 1 cup of the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat it in the microwave for 1 minute on high power. Carefully remove the bowl with a kitchen towel or oven mitt; it may be very hot. Although the chips may not be melted at first, stir them with a spoon. They should melt within a minute or two. If they're still not completely melted after you have stirred them, microwave them for an additional 10-20 seconds and stir. Step 2 Spoon a small amount of melted chocolate into each of the muffin cups. Cover the bottom of the cup at least halfway up the sides, using the back of the spoon. Step 3 Place the muffin cups on a plate or tray and place them in the freezer. Cool for 20 minutes. Step 4 Melt the second cup of chips. Remove the muffin cups from the freezer. Add another layer of chocolate to the bottom and sides of each cup. Place the cups back on the plate and into the freezer for an additional 20 minutes. Step 5 Remove the muffin cups from the freezer. Using the tip of a small spoon, place a small amount of peanut butter inside each one. You may need to use two spoons or a spoon and a finger to get the peanut butter into the bottom of the cup. Smooth it out slightly. Step 6 Just before eating, gently remove the paper from the peanut butter cup and place a few pretzel goldfish in the center of the peanut butter. Enjoy! http://www.nickjr.com/food/character_food/spongebob/spongebob_chocolate_fishbowls.jhtml?minibar=true Krabby Patties 2 tbsp. finely chopped onion 2 tbsp. finely chopped celery 4-6 tbsp. vegetable oil 1 tsp. thyme 1 lb. frozen imitation crabmeat, (defrosted and finely chopped in a food processor) 3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard 2 tbsp. mayonnaise (plus 1 cup for dipping sauce) 2 eggs, lightly beaten Salt and pepper (to taste) 3 tbsp. ketchup (for dipping sauce) Step 1 Sauté the onions and celery in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the thyme, lower the heat, and cook until the onions are translucent. Step 2 In a large bowl combine the crabmeat, sautéed onions and celery, bread crumbs, Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, egg, salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine. Step 3 Shape into rounds by using a small ice cream scoop, then gently pat flat. Step 4 Heat 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large skillet. Working in batches (2 to 3 crab cakes at a time) place the crab cakes in a skillet and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. You may need to add more oil for the second and third batches. Step 5 Preheat the oven to 400°F. Transfer the crab cakes to the baking pan and bake for 10 minutes. The crab cakes can be kept in a warm oven for approximately 30 minutes, or they may be reheated at serving time. Serve with a kid-friendly dipping sauce. http://www.nickjr.com/food/character_food/spongebob/spongebob_crab_cakes.jhtml?minibar=true Bikini Bottom Seaweed Pie 1 cup Bisquick 8 eggs, lightly beaten 1/2 cup vegetable oil 3 cups fresh spinach leaves, chopped 1 medium onion, finely diced 1 clove garlic, minced 1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese 1 tsp. oregano Salt and pepper (to taste) Bread crumbs and seashells (for garnish) Step 1 Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 5 Pie may be served warm or at room temperature. Cut the pie into squares when you are ready to serve and arrange them on a platter decorated to look like the bottom of the sea. Sprinkle bread crumbs on the bottom of the platter, place seaweed squares on top, and arrange some seashells around the perimeter. http://www.nickjr.com/food/character_food/spongebob/spongebob_seaweed_pie.jhtml?minibar=true
  3. I love the idea of the volcano cake. They aren't that hard, really. Here's a site with good instructions, and it doesn't look all that complicated. http://jas.familyfun.go.com/recipefinder/display?id=50219 If that one doesn't tickle your fancy, here's a site with a bunch more. Click on the pictures for the instrucitons for each one. http://www.coolest-birthday-cakes.com/volcano-cake.html You could use these to decorate the cake: http://thepartyworks.com/product_info.php/cPath/17_269/products_id/7159 .
  4. Make a dome shaped cake for Patrick's "Rock" house and use a real pineapple for Spongebob's house. Make squidwards Easter Island house out of cardboard if you can't find a Drink mug shaped like it.
  5. Aw, I was gonna suggest the store! Could you do something involving the Pineapple? You could even buy one just for decoration on the cake. "OHHH, who lives in a pineapple under the sea?!" LOL
