A few weekends ago I made a cake for a friend’s son’s 4th birthday! He is obsessed with trains so a Thomas the Train cake seemed perfect!
The cake was vegan red velvet with a vegan cream cheese filling, crumb coated with vegan decorator’s icing, then covered with fondant. The bottom part of the train is made by baking a 9″ x 13″ rectangle cake cut into the train shape, and the face is a 6″ round. With the extra pieces of “scrap” cake, I made wheels, covered them separately with fondant, then attached to the cake.
A portion of proceeds from this cake will be donated to The EEC and provide 80 meals for the children there!
Wishing Tyler a very happy birthday and an awesome year being 4 years old!
And here are some pics of the Birthday Boy enjoying his cake My favorite is the one with him eating the cake but how Thomas’ face had been saved!
