I have never seen this show. However, having nieces and a nephew and friends with kids I am aware of this cartoon phenomenon. I don’t get it. But then again, I grew up watching the Smurfs.
So when my friend Laura enlisted my sister and I (The Delicious Divas) as the caterers for her son’s bday party, I heard “Jack would like a Spongebob Squarepants” cake” the first thing I thought was theme party!
Planning and caterering an 8 year olds birthday party is pretty simple, as there’s not much cooking one needs to do to satisfy the masses. Burgers. Hot dogs. Chips and dip. Cake. Done. The fun part was to come up with names for the abovementioned food. This is where my sister Jennifer stepped-up to the plate and came up with creative names that incorporated phrases and characters from the show. The menu:
We attempted to core the pineapple (Spongebob lives in one under the sea) and put the fruit salad in it. Honestly, it sounded like way too much work. So, we cut off the bottom and semi-cored the pineapple to lay on the plate flat. Then we just added the fruit around it and made it the centerpiece. I don’t even think the kids ate it, I mean I’m a realist. They wanted Goldfish and cake. Not fruit. But the adults seemed to enjoy it.
