FutureTechLive! to Host SpongeBob Virtual Pancake Party

Comic-Con@Home is in full swing! For families looking for activities to enjoy for your kids, look no further. Check out the details below for a SpongeBob virtual pancake party this weekend:

As part of the world builders celebration of Comic-Con@Home taking place this weekend, there is a special treat, literally, scheduled for this Saturday and Sunday.

FutureTechLive!, the official entertainment-meets-tech pavilion of Comic-Con the past five years, and now virtually, is presenting live from The Food Channel & SugarGeek Studios: “SPONGEBOB VIRTUAL PANCAKE COOKING PARTY!”

Attendees will join, from their homes, in a live virtual cooking get-together in which cake master Liz Marek will have you make delicious pancakes that look like favorite SpongeBob characters. People are welcome in even if they just want to watch the culinary fun.

This is a FREE EVENT, and open to any one worldwide.

There are two options: Saturday, July 25 at 10 a.m. PT and Sunday, July 26 at 10 a.m. PT

After the Zoom session, participants will be able to post photos of their creations, and have a chance to win prizes from Sugar Geek Show and Food Channel.

This event is part of the FutureTechLive! World Builders Experience taking place now during the first-ever virtual Comic-Con — which resulted from the physical show being canceled for the first time in over 50 years due to Covid-19.

There is a Sugar Geek / Food Channel lounge inside of this virtual world. To experience that, go to: then look for the FutureTechLive! Virtual World Builders square on the home page there, click on it, then download the file (or go to: and then download the file). Then “walk” around this very cool virtual world, and find the Sugar Geek / Food Channel lounge area.

SpongeBob is indeed quite the example of world building. SpongeBob, Patrick and co. make up a motley crew of characters in a land under the sea. SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated comedy television series created by marine science educator and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. The series chronicles the adventures and endeavors of the title character and his aquatic friends in the fictional underwater city of Bikini Bottom. The fifth-longest-running American animated series, its popularity has made it a media franchise. It is the highest rated series to air on Nickelodeon and ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks‘ most distributed property.

Now people can have fun with these characters in the kitchen.

If you are going to make pancakes during the live zoom, then here’s the list of ingredients you want to get from your local store or wherever before the zoom:

  • pancake mix
  • food coloring
  • large non-stick pan or griddle
  • spatula
  • hand-mixer (optional)
  • plastic bottles for piping or piping bags


TO REGISTER: attendees need to email their name, which party they want to join (Saturday’s or Sunday’s), and their email address to:

Update (7/31) - From Bleeding Cool:

SpongeBob SquarePants' SDCC Pancake Party Proved Our Sunday Zen

Ahoy! Are you ready, kids? Well, you may need an adult to help, because even as an adult I don't have a great handle on the stovetop, but it's time to make some pancakes. Cake decorating instructor Liz Marek and her husband Dan (with a special cameo by their children) hosted an interactive panel that taught participants how to make pancake art in the form of SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends.

The panel itself was hosted over Zoom and acted as a hands-on teaching session full of tips for not only making the Spongebob characters but pancake art and pancakes in general. The whole experience was charming and featured several participants who had their kids in the kitchen taking part, too. Wholesome fun for fans of the show of all ages, and fans of pancakes. So basically everyone. She walked participants through how to prep the batter for making perfect pancake art, reference guides for making SpongeBob, Plankton, Gary, and Patrick, as well as real-time questions, answers, and tips if anyone got stuck or tripped up along the way.

Marek is a Portland-based cake artist, instructor, and author who also runs the Sugar Geek Show channel and site. She partnered with The Food Channel to bring this experience to Comic-Con@Home as part of the "FutureTechLive! World Builders Experience." If Liz looks like a familiar face from your television screen, that's because she is: her team won 2017's seventh season of Food Network's Halloween Wars. This "cook along" was a delightful way to start my SDCC Sunday and I hope this panel makes some kind of a comeback in future years. Now, I'm going to sit down with my SpongeBob SquarePants and let you get back to enjoying all the amazing pancake art and the rest of SDCC.
