Meanwhile, roll out yellow fondant. Cut strips about 8 x 9 inches for the front and back and 4 x 7 inches for the sides. (don't make them too large to prevent waste)
Lay the fondant on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Chill the fondant pieces in the fridge for 10 minutes. Then, brush the cake with water and panel the cold fondant pieces to Spongebob. Use a cake smoother to cut off the excess as shown in the videoTip - Chilling the fondant will help make it firm so you can work with it easily. Once on the cake, it will thaw again so become soft.
