Thomas the Train Cake

Posted on May 30th, 2010 in Cakes, Cookies

Train Cakes are always fun to make. Whenever I make trains, I have to decide whether to carve it or make it from a cake mold. The following cake combines a little bit of both. I initially made it in the mold, but I had to modify it by carving it so I could make it look like Thomas.

Here’s Thomas the Train!


Thomas’ face is made out of chocolate and the whole engine is White Butter cake. It is all covered and decorated with buttercream.

One wagon was White Butter cake and the other one is Chocolate Butter cake.

And here are the sugar (vanilla) cookies we made for the party. There were 48 of them! The boy was turning 3 years old, so a chocolate  number 3 was made separately and ‘glued’ on the cookies. The numbers had a glow to them as they were brushed with luster dust for an extra touch.

I hope you enjoyed this cake. Like I said before, I enjoy making trains!
