We had a successful Sponge Bob party last night. The treasure hunt and the piñata were a hit.
My failure, however was the Sponge Bob cake. Emet has specifically asked for a chocolate cake with Sponge Bob on it.
I spent an hour mixing colors and painting a huge Sponge Bob on the top of the cake. And he looked perfect! I ran out of icing though, and ended up using some left over cookie icing gel for his eyes and mouth. Then I covered the cake topper with a cloth so as to not spoil the surprise - and when I came back a couple hours later, Sponge Bob's eye had rolled right off his head!
Fast forward all the way to after dinner - and his other eye was looking non-eyeish and his mouth was beginning to become wavy. He was just melting apart!
So, when I presented the cake, I apologized to Emet saying that he was Sponge Bob but he was melting and I'm sorry!
Emet looked at me and said, "Mom, I didn't even want a Sponge Bob cake! What I really wanted was a one-eyed weirdo cake!"
