Little Birthday Train

Nathan's 6th Birthday 8-8-12 (2)


This little train cake is simple, fairly quick and a no fail for any little boy’s birthday. The little train is made with a fondant/gumpaste mix. The “coal tender” is filled with yellow mini M&M’s. I threaded three white fondant balls on to a curved wire to made puffs of smoke coming from the  engine. The trees are made from fondant, just like those in the Twin Tents cake. (You can find that in the archives) I sprayed the frosting green and added fondant rocks with piped grass and a piped grass bottom border to finish.  My kids were endlessly fascinated with the fact that the tracks disappeared into a tunnel, but didn’t come out the other side. I’ll have to save that for the next one I guess.
