Coolest Train Birthday Cake

I baked 2 rectangular cakes to make the shape of this train birthday cake – rectangular tin 12” x 9”.

1st rectangular cake – divided equally into 3 length ways.

1st length – nothing. (12”x3”)

2nd length – cut equally in ½. (6”x3”) each

3rd length – cut 2/3 to 1/3. (8”x3”) and (4”x3”)

2nd rectangular cake – cut 6 equal rectangles size 4”x3”.

I ended up with 11 smaller rectangles.

Going back the 3rd length – 1/3 (4”x3”) of the cake – cut a slant and placed on top of the 2/3 (8”x3”)


For the icing: butter icing and food colourings.

Sides and connecting carriages: strawberry laces.

Carriages: Decoration: dolly mixtures, smarties, white dazzles, chocolate dazzles, wine gums and fizzers. The wheels are made with giant buttons.

The smoke stack is a big marshmallow with a wire that has mini marshmallows strung on.
