I made this train cake for a co-worker’s son’s 2nd birthday. I wanted it to be a fun colorful cake that a 2 year old would like.  Everything but the train engine, candles and trees were made of candy or icing.  For the wheels I use coconut chocolate cookies.  The letters are iced sugar cookies. I filled the train cares with candy. I bought a Thomas The Train to pull the cars on the track.  He loves Thomas Train and this toy was part of my gift to him.

It for sure isn’t the best made cake, but he was tickled pink with it. She sent me a picture of him with the cake and he has the biggest smile on his face. I wasn’t very happy with what I had done until I got the picture of him with the cake. He loved it and that was all that mattered.  I learned that it doesn’t always have to be perfect.  All that matters is if the child thinks it’s perfect.
