This farm animal train cake I made for my two year old's birthday. The train cars & engine were made with regular cake mix in mini-bread loaf pans. The round part of the engine was regular cake mix in a washed-out soup can.

I froze the engine parts & then carved them & fit the pieces together like a puzzle. I placed the cars upside down so the top was flat. I had to freeze the cake a bit and use a frosting knife dipped in hot water to make the frosting go on smooth. The cars & engine are decorated with colored buttercream icing & candies. I placed a farmer on the engine & animals on each car. The smokestack is a large marshmellow.

The tracks are black licorice & wafer cookies, wheels are oreo cookies.
The grass & hay is coconut mixed with food coloring.




If you had circus animals & a little clown, that would be very cute too! This cake made my little boy SO happy on his birthday & guaranteed if you boy loves trains, he'll love this too!
