How large do you want to make the cars?

I wouldn't do them in solid fondant. I would eoll out the fondant, cut panels (as you would to make a gingerbread train) and glue them together with RI or sugar glue.

Hi all, playingwithsugar, i probably dont wanna do it too big.. and your idea sounds great.. do you know where i could find a gingerbread train template?

KHalstead.. i actually haven't ever tried molding rice crispy treats and i do actually want to make it small.. so probably won't try the rice krispie treat first icon_smile.gif haha.. i'm actually a bit intimidated by using rice krispies icon_smile.gif

Send me a PM with your e-mail address. I tried attaching coloring pages which you could cut apart for templates, but the documents are too big.

Cut out the train parts individually, then shape where necessary, allow to dry. Then assemble with sugar glue. I would not use RI for something as small as you are describing.

Use the sugar glue sparingly, as too much will soften your paste.
