I don't hang out with small kids and so don't really have much idea about cartoon characters. Of course I've heard of Sponge Bob Square Pants but never really noticed him before until the other day when my friend Helen asked me to make a cake for her six-year-old granddaughter Gaby. Now I know a lot about Mr. Square Pants: he lives in an underwater pineapple (!?), his best friend is a star fish and something about a squirrel who has to have a bubble on his head so he can breathe.
Okay so he's an underwater sponge...but not an ocean sponge but a cellulose one. Uh...well...he is kinda cute. So was the cake!
