Coolest Train Birthday Cake

I used a floor tile as a base as the cake boards that I had were too small to create the scene that I had envisaged. I baked mini chocolate logs and decorated each log as a mini carriage. I used log biscuits and liquorice as the tracks and decorated either side of the tile to depict the sea and land scenery.

I used the kids plastic toys for the window,chimney, yacht and stones from the “yet to be made fish tank”. I don’t usually work with fondant as I don’t really know how and my family prefer butter icing. I decorated with sweets and biscuits using different sweets on each ‘carriage’. Needless to say my 8 year old son was thrilled. It was very time consuming, but the smiles on the kids faces, make it all worthwhile.
