My little Tyrant, I mean, little love of my life, is turning two tomorrow. Since I want to have plenty of time to spend the day playing with him I made his cake today. This cake was pretty easy and super tasty. Since Spongebob or as Lucas calls him "Bob Bob" lives in a pineapple under the sea and is a yellow sponge, I made a moist yellow pineapple cake.
1 box of yellow cake mix
3 eggs (I used 3/4 cup of a cholesterol free egg product)
1/3 cup of Canola Oil (I read an article a long time ago about breast cancer and it said Canola is better then Vegetable which has been linked to increased chances of breast cancer just an fyi )
20 ounce can of crushed pineapple in real pineapple juice.
Mix above according to cake package directions (don't add water there is enough liquid in the canned pineapple). Bake in a 13"x9" cake pan for 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, at 350 F degrees or 325 F for dark or coated non stick pans.
To Decorate Cake:
To decorate cake I frosted two yellow Twinkies for his feet in black cream cheese chocolate frosting.
I used two Oreo Golden funstix for his legs. I melted white chocolate and covered the bottom of the funstix and then used edible markers to add lines in red and blue to resemble his socks. I used a 1/4 piece of a funstix for his nose and covered it in frosting.
The rest of the decorating is just a combination of fluffy white frosting, chocolate cream cheese frosting, and food coloring. I could have probably done a little nicer job if I had actually used my piping bags and tips but I didn't feel like hand washing everything afterwards so I just used zip lock bags and snipped the tip. So who wants a piece of cake, I know "I am ready ready ready ready ready" as the Bob man would say.
Best part, when Lucas saw the finished cake, he screamed and clapped with joy. Oh I love you baby boy. Happy one Day Before your very own special Day! I will be sure to share his B-day pics with you too.
