Tidmouth Sheds Cake
Here’s a Tidmouth Sheds cake that I made for my 3yr old train lover. I am a total novice at fondant, but wanted to give it a go! It’s inspired by Thomas & Friends train shed. I made a scratch 9×13 banana chip cake for the base and one 9×13 chocolate cake for the shed (cut in half, stacked and sides trimmed, with icing between layers).

I made the engine out of blue icing, 1/2 flower paste, 1/2 fondant, this is so it is easy to model and it hardens too. Next, I did some of the finishing touches out of a little red, grey and black icing to finish the engine and I set it aside. I made the track to sit the train on and attached using a little edible glue. This was set aside to harden. I then made a number 1 to attach to the cake when finished.
