My grandson wanted a Thomas the Train cake for his 4th birthday.  This was the first time I made this type of cake.

The outside of the train cake was made of gingerbread cookies and inside the gingerbread cookies was a homemade pound cake. The icing was a cream cheese icing recipe tinted to the various colors needed for the train.

For the decorations I used Dove chocolates for the headlights and cookies for the wheels.

I even inserted a picture of my grandson in the window.

All in all the cake turned out ok and most importantly, it tasted good.
