Thomas the Tank Engine Cake

Even though I don’t “officially” do cakes anymore, I like to make the occasional cake for friends or family. This month a friend of mine asked if I could make a Thomas the Tank Engine cake for her son and since I had some time and I like doing kids cakes I agreed. And I’m glad I did. It was a fun cake to make.

I baked 2 12″ square cakes and cut each in half then stacked them.

The chocolate butter cake was filled and iced with Swiss meringue buttercream.

The cake was covered in fondant and all decorations are all fondant with the exception of Thomas’s face which was made of gum paste.

My friend said her son loved the cake. Totally worth it!
