Sponge cake is a food item that appears in the episodes "To Save a Squirrel" and "InSPONGEiac," as well as the video game SpongeBob vs. The Big One: Beach Party Cook-Off and the online game Cooking Contest, though it is first mentioned in "Blackened Sponge."


It has a light yellow exterior, and, according to Patrick, it has a white creamy filling inside, which is seen in "InSPONGEiac."

"To Save a Squirrel"

Patrick deems himself so hungry that he could eat a sponge cake. SpongeBob runs away in horror upon the syllable pause in between the words "sponge" and "cake," after which it turns out that Patrick just wanted to share a sponge cake with him.


Patrick imagines SpongeBob as a sponge cake and bites his hand thinking he is one, before realizing that it is him.

Sponge cakes appear as a dessert item on the menu. To make one, the player has to juice, melt, deep-fry, and paint in that order.

Cooking Contest

It is one of the foods to make.



  • In "Blackened Sponge," when SpongeBob asks Jack M. Crazyfish if he is ready to get crazy, Jack replies "You bet your frosting, sponge cake!"
  • In "To Save a Squirrel," the sponge cake looks exactly like a Twinkie.
    • The one shown in "InSPONGEiac" is more accurate to what an actual sponge cake looks like.
  • In the video game SpongeBob SquigglePants, the nanogame called "That Takes the Spongecake" is named after this food.
