AI think the easiest is to do a frozen buttercream transfer. :)

I can't say which is harder because I have very limited experience..  but I think printing out the image and then using it as a template to make the outline on the cake, and piping in with stars like the typical character cakes are done, just seems easier to me.

And spongebob seems like it would be easy because you can just bake a 9x13 cake and it's already the right shape :)

I've checked out this site quite a few times, even though I haven't made a character cake .. yet. Seems simple enough, some people use different techniques, and for each cake the person explained how they made it.

Some go into greater detail than others.  >>  http://www.coolest-birthday-cakes.com/sponge-bob-cake.html


This is another method that can be used >> http://www.wilton.com/decorating/patterns/transferring-patterns.cfm


This one also has some good tips and tricks. >> http://stircrazyshell.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/character-cake-tips-tricks/



Just a few things that hopefully help you out!

 Yea you could also do the frozen bc transfer.. didn't even think of that one.

I want to try it myself, maybe on my next cakethumbs_up.gif  

I looked up a few tutorials, found this one explains it pretty well!

AFor a clean look, there is no beating fondant. [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/2977868/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
