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!
