My ten-year-old nephew (The Boy Wonder) requested a baking session with me and particularly wanted to make Spongebob Squarepants cakes (hey, who doesn’t?). We decided to turn this into a weekend-long festival celebrating cake: Cake Fest 2008. I see this as an annual event that will grow over the years eventually requiring camping arrangements, several different kitchens, wristbands etc but this year it was a small, exclusive guest list.
All the gang were reunited; Miss Lucille was on tea duty:
Betty Boop held the menu:
- Rhubarb tart, the recipe for which can be found here
- Bakewell tarts, the recipe for which can be found here
- Mini cheesecakes, the recipe for which can be found here
- Scones with clotted cream and jam, the recipe for which can be found here
We used the Genoese sponge recipe and an icing-sugar-and-water runny icing. His eyes are white maltesers and the distinctive Spongebob teeth are rice paper.
I know side-kicks are meant to assist rather than lead, but The Boy Wonder made these 100% himself. I think I might soon be out of a job.....
