I am going to be doing a train theme for a birthday party for a 3 year old. I am wanting to do a train cake. I have seen the ones posted on this site and really like but i am not sure how to make the train cars or if there is any other ideas.
thanks for all your help icon_biggrin.gif

I believe Nordicware makes a train pan with all the cars. Also, if you have Debbie Brown's Easy Party Cakes there is a train cake in there icon_smile.gif

I have a zoo train that I made for my daughter's 2nd b'day. The cars were cakes and I wanted a rustic wooden look so I covered them with panels of chocolate candy clay mxed with satin ice fondant.

I just made this one. It's iced in buttercream and the train is made out of fondant. Just do a google search for a train coloring picture, print it out, cut it out, lay it on your fondant, and cut around. Then brush water on the reverse side and lay it right on your cake. Oh, and make sure you can see the engine when looking at the front of the cake icon_redface.gif

Thanks for the compliments. I just wish I would have turned the top tier a little to the left, so you could see the engine of the train while look straight at the front of the cake. Oh well. Nobody at the party noticed but me. LOL!!!
