Title: Thomas the Tank Engine cake
Post by: Belladune on August 16, 2010 10:41:53 AM
A friend of mine's Son turned 3.  He requested a Thomas cake, and His Mom asked me to make it.  Of course!  I love making cake!  Especially cakes that are intricate and require carving!

There are 3 cakes (batches of cake) in this giant cake.  It had to have weighed at least 10 Lbs.  Frosted with butter cream frosting and the face is made of Marshmellow fondant.  It was devoured.  Which is awesome.  I love seeing the cake disappear!








comments and criticism welcome!

Link to the how to I used for the face!
