Patrick Star Cake

A few months back I made a Spongebob cake, and I knew it was only a matter of time before I made a Patrick star cake!

For those who don’t know, Patrick is Spongebob’s best friend. He’s a happy-go-lucky starfish who loves krabby patties and jelly fishing. Spongebob is definitely my favorite character, but Patrick is a close second.

In fact, I dressed up as Patrick for Halloween this year. My friends were not surprised! 😛

Staying true to my cake style, I did my best to make this cake primarily out of buttercream.

However, I had to pull out some fun cake tricks to create Patrick’s starfish shaped body.

Creating a Starfish Shaped Cake

This cake ended up being quite large. I used two batches of cake batter just to make Patrick’s body and head! For his arms and legs, I decided to take a different approach.

Believe it or not, they’re made out of rice krispie treats!! While I think Patrick’s legs could have been made out of rice krispies, his arms would have been super challenging.

Rice krispies are great for gravity defying aspects like this. By mixing together rice krispies and melted marshmallows, you can add onto cakes in a way in a stable manner.

But omitting the butter that a classic rice krispie treat recipe calls for, you can form the krispie mixture into any shape, and it will firm up as the marshmallows cool.

In a strange yet wonderful twist of fate, my grocery store only had strawberry rice krispies! It could not have been more perfect for this cake. I loved that they were pink, just like the cake layers and frosting!!

My one tip is to really squeeze the rice krispies treats together with your hands, to make sure the shape you make is compact and sturdy. This will ensure it keeps its shape when you add it to your cake.

I also love that they’re still edible!! Rice krispies and buttercream are a surprisingly delicious combination.

What Flavor Should a Patrick Star Cake Be?

After I figured out the best way to create Patrick’s pointy shape, I had to think about what flavor he should be.

This was definitely a challenge. Patrick is pink, so I decided to use that a starting point. After wracking my brain for a bit, I settled on making him a strawberry flavor.

On TV, Patrick Star loves eating ice cream, and it’s usually pink in color. I always assumed it was strawberry flavored, so this seemed fitting!! It also is the only pink colored flavor that I could really think of that I like to eat 😛

To incorporate strawberry flavor into the cake and frosting, I used strawberry powder. It’s a bit expensive, but it adds such a delicious flavor!! It also doesn’t add any moisture to the batter or frosting, which is great because it doesn’t change the consistency.

I also added a touch of pink gel food coloring, to make the shade of pink a touch brighter.

Smoothing Buttercream on a Sculpted Cake

Sculpted cakes can be a nightmare when it comes to smoothing frosting. I love using acetate sheets to help make this process easier.

Acetate sheets come in different sizes and thickness, and get mine in a pack of 25 online. You really only need one sheet, but sadly you can’t buy them in that small of a quantity.

The acetate sheets I use come in 12in x 12in square and .007 thick. I cut them down into smaller pieces to use on my cakes. The pieces I use are usually 4in x 3in once I’ve trimmed them with scissors.

They’re the perfect thickness to allow you to spread and smooth the frosting. At the same time, they’re flexible enough to curve around arms and legs!

Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients

Strawberry Cake

  • 6 cups all-purpose flour (780 grams)
  • 5 cups granulated sugar (1000 grams)
  • 1/2 cup strawberry powder (46 grams)
  • 1 2/3 Tbsp baking powder (20 grams)
  • 2 tsp salt (12 grams)
  • 2 cups unsalted butter, room temperature (454 grams) - 4 sticks
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract (12 grams)
  • 2 cups pasteurized egg whites from a carton (or about 14 egg whites) (470 grams)
  • 3 cups sour cream, room temperature (690 grams)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (56 grams)
  • pink gel food coloring (if desired)

Strawberry Buttercream Frosting

  • 3 cups unsalted butter, room temperature (678 grams)
  • 10 cups powdered sugar (1250 grams)
  • 2/3 cup strawberry powder (61 grams)
  • 1 tsp salt (6 grams)
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream (or whipping cream) (170 grams)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (18 grams)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (18 grams)
  • pink gel food coloring (if desired)

Strawberry Rice Krispies

  • 5 cups mini marshmallows (1 10 oz bag)
  • 1 box strawberry Rice Krispies (1 11.5 oz box)

Additional Tools

  • 2 bubbles tea straws or wooden dowels
  • black and white fondant
  • green and purple food coloring

Instructions

Strawberry Cake Layers:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line the following sized-round pans with parchment rounds, and grease with non-stick cooking spray: 3 8-inch pans, 1 7-inch pan, 2 6-inch pans, 3 4-inch pans.
  2. Mix together all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar, strawberry powder, and salt) in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment until fully combined.
  3. Mix chunks of room-temperature butter slowly into the dry mix, on a low speed. Continue to mix until no large chunks of butter remain, and the mixture becomes crumbly.
  4. Pour in egg whites, and mix on low until just incorporated. Mix in the sour cream in two installments, on a low speed.
  5. Add in vanilla and oil, and mix at a low speed until fully incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula, then beat on low speed for about 15 seconds (the key is to mix until the ingredients are JUST incorporated, so that the batter isn't over mixed). 
  6. If desired, add in pink gel food coloring. Mix the color in by hand using a rubber spatula, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl part way through. Mix until the batter is evenly colored.
  7. Divide batter evenly between the prepared cake pans, so that they are filled to the same height.
  8. Bake for 30-35 minutes (varies slightly based on pan size), or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow the pans to cool for 10 minutes, then run an offset spatula around perimeter of the pan to separate the cake from the pan.
  9. Place cake layers into the freezer for 45 minutes, to accelerate the cooling process. Once the layers are fully cooled, carefully flip the pans and remove the layers from the pans.
  10. Use a serrated knife to level the tops of the layers. Set aside.

Strawberry Buttercream Frosting:

  1. While the cake layers bake and cool, make the strawberry buttercream frosting.
  2. Beat the butter on a medium speed for 30 seconds with a paddle attachment, until smooth.
  3. Add the strawberry powder, and mix until it's fully combined with the butter.
  4. Slowly add in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time. Alternate with small splashes of cream.
  5. Once fully mixed, add in the vanilla extract, lemon juice, and salt, and beat on low until the ingredients are fully incorporated, and the desired consistency is reached. 
  6. If the frosting is too thick, add in additional cream (1 TBSP at a time). If the frosting is too thin, add in more powdered sugar (quarter of a cup at a time).
  7. Wait to add any food coloring until after the cake is filled and crumb coated.
  8. Place 2 cups of frosting in a separate bowl and color green.
  9. In a different bowl, color 1 cup of frosting purple, to make Patrick's shorts.
  10. Color the remaining frosting a brighter shade of pink with pink gel food coloring.

Strawberry Krispies

  1. Wait to make these until your cake is crumb coated, and chilling in the freezer or fridge.
  2. To make Patrick's arms and legs, melt the marshmallows in a microwave safe bowl, until they're mostly dissolved (about 1 minutes).
  3. Pour in the strawberry rice krispies, and mix until they're fully coated in marshmallow.

To Assemble The Cake:

  1. Stack and frost cake layers on a large, greaseproof cake drum, from largest to smallest. Use a dab of frosting to help stick the first cake layer to the board.
  2. Build the cake off center, so that you have room to add Patrick's legs later on.
  3. Add an even layer of buttercream between each cake layer.
  4. Insert a wooden dowel through the center of the cake, to help keep the layers in place as you frost the cake.
  5. Apply a coat of frosting around the cake, to fully cover the cake layers.
  6. Smooth using an acetate sheet, then chill the cake in the fridge (30 minutes) or freezer (10 minutes) until the frosting is firm to the touch.
  7. Make the Strawberry Krispies as the cake chills, and tightly press them together to shape patrick's legs.
  8. Shape his arms around bubble tea straws, and then press the straws into the sides of his body. Chill the cake for 10 additional minutes to help the krispies set in place.
  9. Add a second, thicker layer of pink frosting to the torso, head, arms, and legs of the cake.
  10. Smooth using an acetate sheet.
  11. Add green buttercream around Patrick's bottom half, to make his shorts. Chill again, then pipe purple flowers on top of this shorts.
  12. Use fondant to create his eyes, mouth and eyebrows, and gently press them into place.

Notes

Once the layers have fully cooled, I sometimes like to trim the caramelized bits from the sides of the layers using a serrated knife.

These cake layers can be made in advance!! Learn more about how far in advance they can be made, and how to properly wrap them in my post on how to make cake layers ahead of time.

  1. LOVE strawberry cake but have yet to find one that the taste pops. im hoping to try this recipe! however, i do not want to make it into a patrick star just yet! is there a link to a standard size cake to fit in 4-7 inch cake pans or would you just cut this recipe in half? ?????

    1. Hi Kristen,

      Sadly I won’t be sharing the regular size version of this for a bit!! I’d recommend just halving this recipe, which is what it will pretty much be 🙂 I also found that adding in a splash of fresh lemon juice really helps brighten up the flavor. I also love adding some fresh strawberry bits between the cake layers. Hope that helps, happy baking!!

  2. This is amazing!!!! I grew up with spongebob & Patrick so this brought me some nostalgia.. Great work can’t wait to see what you bake up next!

  3. I love Patrick! And I can’t believe how well the Rice Krispies work in molding his arms! This is one I feel like I could maybe make ?

  4. I love it!! I tried adding chai tea powder to my buttercrea.m but was very gritty. Did you have to beat the buttercream a lot for the strawberry powder to dissolve into the buttercream?!

  5. This is so cool! I’m a new caker (made my 3rd cake last night) and I love your stuff. Used your ABC last night and made your Oreo drip cake for my second cake on my wife’s birthday. Hoping to continue improving – thanks for all your help!!

  6. His eyebrows and his pants are so cute! I hope to get to the point where I can sculpt cakes like this. I’m terrified of cutting into cake?

  7. I’ve been wanting to try a shaped cake like this or your corgi cake. I love baking and I think more complicated cakes are the next step! Thanks for the great instructions. “Is this the krusty krab”

When I do get a chance to bake I always use one of your recipes.

As a kid baker, I’m not completely sure what I’m going to do yet, but it’s awesome to know that people like you are very successful and happy without owning a “traditional bakery”.

  66. I love how you really make this sculpted Patrick cake so approachable! Thanks for the tip on acetate sheets! I’ve Used them for chocolate work but never thought to use them for smoothing frosting!

  67. I love your sculpted cakes! But I can’t wrap my mind around how you make them so smooth!? In the video, I understand you have to spend a lot of time showing all the steps, so your frosting goes from being rough, to perfectly smooth in a flash. I’d be interested in a video watching how you make the sculpted cake so smooth! I’d also be interested in some new sprinkles 😉

  68. I love your patrick star cake! I have been following you on instagram for about a year now, and your videos have helped me in my progression in baking! Im currently one semester away from having my degree in baking, and i enjoy using some of your recipes to make my own baked goods! Thanks for amazing recipes and videos.

  72. My grandkids would absolutely love this Patrick cake. Maybe I will try it one day. I’m still an amateur when it comes to cakes but this looks relaticely simple although it may be a bit time consuming. As for choosing the strawberry flavor, there is no other flavor I can think of that would have worked well with him. Plus he’s pink and so are strawberries. LOL

  73. Our favorite character in cake form ? This would definitely be a hit for my son’s birthday. Love the step by step and photos. So colorful and vibrant, what’s not to love ?

  74. This is adorable! Takes me back to when I babysat my niece and nephew and this is all they watched. Theme song still gets stuck in my head randomly

  75. I love this cake especially since you didn’t use fondant. You’re work amazes me and inspires me to keep baking. And don’t forget. What’s funnier than 24?! 25!!!

  76. I love the necessary strawberry rice crispy limbs! I will definitely give this cake recipe a try as I love using powders to flavor. Have you tried using hibiscus powder yet? It’s my go to for macaron filling or in buttercream on chocolate cake.

  77. You’re amazing! You’re the first Instagram cake decorator I ever followed and you’re still my favorite. Patrick is so cute 🙂

  78. Just love this Patrick cake! It made my son and I smile. Great tip on using Rice Krispies, too. Def need to venture out more with shaping my cakes. Thank you for the inspiration!

  91. I love your cakes!! I’m making your vanilla buttercream and best vanilla cake (with some cookie butter) recipe right now! Please send me a sprinkles gift card!

  104. You are so talented!! I love watching your creativity with each cake!! This one is by far my sons favorite and he wants me to make one…with all your tips and tricks it gives me a little hope I can attempt it! Keep up the great work!!

  105. I haven’t made this particular cake, but love that you make such fun and detailed cakes with mostly buttercream! You see lots of fondant being used out there but I love that you appreciate taste as much as design. He’s so much fun, great work!

  106. This cake is so fun and so incredibly perfect! From the colors to the flavors you really knocked this out of the park. Just like the rest of your cakes!

  107. I’m definitely going to have to try this! It looks and sounds delicious! Patrick is so cute! His body looks perfect! You’re an amazing cake artist!

  108. Omg omg! My favorite character from Sponge Bob! This bring me so many memories! Thank you Chelsea! I’m gonna try to make a cake like this! ? I love you’re buttercream and how you smooth it out! ??

  109. This is so cool. I love how you used the rice krispies!!! I’m curious, what about the butter or lack thereof changes it for sculpting? Does it make it sturdier after setting or just make it more moldable?

  110. This makes me so happy! ? Spongebob was 100% my favorite show when I was a kid (and it still is ?). Thanks for sharing your genius ideas!

  111. Great cake! I was curious how you attached his arms, so happy that was answered in the blog. Thank you for the tips and tricks!

  112. Every cake you post looks absolutely amazing! They look even better then the one before which should honestly be impossible! Keep up the amazing baking and decorating!

  113. This cake is adorable and just brings a smile to my face. You did a great job smoothing the frosting over the RKT.

  114. Omg! I will make this for our anniversary! We love spongebob and Patrick! This looks amazing and doable’ thanks for sharing!

  115. Such a cute cake! I love the idea of smoothing your buttercream with acetate! I’m more a cookie decorator, but also do some cakes. I made your buttercream the other week and it was a huge hit! Thank you for all that you share! This cake sounds delicious!

  116. Frosted rice Krispy treats are my favorite. I haven’t done a sculpted cake in years, but this makes me want to try! You are so talented and inspiring!

  117. Out of all of the Patrick Star cakes i have seen, this is the most AWESOME one i have seen? nicely done, and keep impressing us by all your awesome & tasty looking cakes?

  118. Oh I was wondering how your rice krispy treats were pink! I thought you might have found some super pink marshmallows somewhere!! I can’t believe how smooth you got the cake, I find smoothing sculpted cakes so daunting, but you sure have encouraged me to give it a go!

  119. Really enjoy your cakes and the details you provide so we can all try our hands at it! I’ve yet to try rice krispies and sculpting! Thanks for the inspiration. ?

  120. So creative with the the projections of your main character! Always something yummy!! You are almost to 1 million viewers!!! Everyone loves you!!

  121. Your cake videos are always so entertaining to watch! Love all of the tips I’ve learned from you. Thank you for sharing your talent!

  123. I love how simple yet totally creative you make everything!!!!! Such an inspiration!!!!!!!! When I bake I make my recipes and decorating just too complicated when it totally doesn’t have to be that way!!!!!! Also when I took the cartoon test on Instagram lol I got Patrick! Thank you for baking!!!! And way to go on quitting your corporate job!!!!!!!! (@caitlinthesquirrel)

  124. This cake is so amazing!!! Looks so realistic!! Your incredible and I can’t wait to try this one at home with my mum!!

  128. It’s so darn cute! my issue is the scuplting part of the head… well any sculpting on any cake really. Any tips? Also, for strawberry flavor, i use instant strawberry gelatin powder. I cream it with the butter before adding the sugar. it tastes great, gets pink and is very smooth.

  129. I so enjoy watching you create your cakes especially Patrick! You’re giving me the inspiration to decorate my cakes. I just wish my cakes would look just a little like yours.
