Hi all. I wanted to use William and Sonoma's little car molds
but I was wondering how to decorate them. I really don't want to color the batter because I think that would look kinda boring.

Is there a way to cover them in buttercream or fondant and still have the shape and details come through?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.[/img]

Good luck with that... Someone gave me that pan for Christmas two years ago and I have never used it for that reason. I don't cover cakes in fondant, but I guess you could always result to the star tip to cover them in buttercream.

Are you doing them for a customer or just for your family? I would love to know what you end up doing.

Do you think a colored poured fondant like something used on petit fours could be an option?

I want to make them for my son's 2nd birthday. Yeah, maybe the smallest star tip could be useful.

Actually the poured fondant sounds good. I don't have the pan, I was planning on getting it just for this. But now I'm not so sure.

Make sure you look at the actual pan before you buy it. Each train car is very small....barely bigger than a cupcake. I could easily eat a whole one at one sitting! lol
