These are the train cakes I made for my son's first birthday party.  They were all decorated using a size 16 star tip and size 3 round tip for the writing and other details.  My mom helped with the decorating as I didn't leave myself as much time as I needed.  Smiley



The big engine was made from a Wilton train pan using a Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix frosted with buttercream.  (I used one stick of margarine, four cups of powdered sugar, one teaspoon of vanilla, one tablespoon of Wilton meringue powder, Wilton food coloring, and milk added until it was the right consistency.)



I cut up black licorice for the coal car.





The present car and caboose were made using a regular 13"x9" pan and cut to look like train cars.  These were a cinnamon swirl cake.  Betty Crocker used to make a cinnamon cake mix, but it is not available any longer.  I made my own using a mix of 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and a tablespoon of cinnamon added to a vanilla cake mix.  It tastes very good.



Present details.



I also used two sticks of licorice on the caboose.



The small engine was made using a metal train cookie cutter.  It is the same Funfetti cake as the big engine.  This was Ethan's personal cake to destroy.  Smiley



I think he liked it.

The cake looks fantastic, but that action shot is the BEST!  Grin
