This is a pretty simple Thomas the Train birthday cake I made for my nephew’s second birthday. I showed a picture of the carved cake before I frosted it. I started with a 9×13 cake that I cut two 4×9 pieces for the front of the train and two squares about 4×4 to stack on the back. Mixed some cake scrapes with frosting and rolled into a log shape for rounded front part. You could also use a ho-ho snack cake for the log, thought of it after.
Used large marshmallow on toothpick for smoke stack. Cut front of cake to come to a triangle and slightly rounded sides of train. Crumb coated and used a star tip to decorate the cake. First time decorating a whole cake with a star tip. Was pretty easy just takes a little while. Cut some Oreos in half for the train’s wheels. Stuck one of thse sugar decorations on the front for Thomas face and that’s it. Overall, it was easy and looked very cute. Nephew and guest’s loved it
