Cake Decorating – Thomas the Tank Engine Birthday Cake

Joshua wanted a Thomas the Tank Engine cake for his 3rd birthday, so this is what I made.
I found the original idea from Pinterest. (Of course!)

    I did something very similar for my son…added some RR crossing signs….funny when he took the train off the cake licked it then stuck it back on the cake! =)

  3. I’m pinning this idea for my niece’s next birthday. I hear that she is quite the Thomas fan and this looks fun!

  4. my grandson would love this hes a train fanatic – thanks

    Looks wonderful! I love making cakes but when it comes to the decorating I always mess it up. Wish my cakes looked so pretty

    My grandson is 2-1/2 and he just saw TV for the first time (what an accomplishment for his parents, I say!). And what did he see? Thomas! And he was in LOVE. He’ll get this cake for his 3rd birthday for sure.

  7. That is so cute. I wish I were creative like that.

    if only i had time..i love to bake cakes,but decorating is the hardest part..

  10. Great cake! My little boy wants a Thomas cake for his 3rd birthday next month. Love the idea of putting one of the little take n play trains on as I was going to get him one or two of these as extra presents so would be a fab way to combine the two.

  11. This is sooo darn cute I’d love to tackle something like this but I’m a little scared. Thanks for the great post and wonderful pics.

  12. Can you give me your recipe for your Thomas the train cake icing please????
