I need to make a 3D Thomas cake for my friend's son. (She helped me pack my whole house when i moved so i owe her!)
I tried to find the Debbie Brown's book but it's $80 at amazon and I can't afford it right now.
Does anyone have this book and can give me instructions about how to make the cake? specially the carving?
I did find the instructions for thomas on a blogspot but those are for buttercream. i'll use those if nothing else but i would love to see Debbie Brown;s way.
I don't have the book, so I can't help you out there. Did you try checking at your local library to see if they might have it? I did a quick online search at my library and they have a couple of Debbie Brown's books.
Hi, I have the tutorial 3D thomas cake . I saved on my favorite, but I don`t know how send to you. on CC . If you help me , .
thanks! i did checked the library...they don;t have it.
I also checked ebay, they have two but the bid closes in a week plus they are already going to be a high price since they are 5 bids on each.
I do have the 3D tutorial from thomas.blogspot...i was interested on seeing the instrucions for a fondant one.
Which book is it from?
i think it is "Favourite character cakes". that one has thomas on the front .
When do you need it by? My library has it, but I have to request it and wait for it to get sent from another branch.
This one ends in a day and is only $13 so far.
less than 2 days at $7
Forgive me, I didn't look at the shipping on those. Jeez Louise!
CakeMakar, Thank you so much for all your research!!! I can't believe you are taking the time to do this for me!!! Thanks!
I did see those two on ebay but they are in Australia, so even if I win the bid who knows if I'll get them on time.
Answering your question, The cake is for next Saturday at 10AM. So the absolute latest for my to get the book is thursday so i can decorate on friday.
I think that those australian books might not get here on time ....
I'll request it from the library and see when I get it. Hopefully it gets here quick. If I get it before Thursday I'll scan it and send it to you. Provided another CC'er doesn't come to the rescue first!
Someone sent me the Lovable Character Cake directions when I was in a bind, so I'm just paying it forward!
Thanks!! I'll wait and we'll see. Don't worry if you don't get it or can't get to the library. Thanks so much for you help!
I do have tons of books (not this one though), so if you ever need one let me know!
Sorry, I don't think I'm going to get it. I saw I'm the second person it's on hold for and its checked out at the moment. The person in front of me can keep it up to 3 weeks and who knows how long the current person has had it.
I have the book and would be happy to scan and email you the instruction pages. Please PM me your email address.
I am in Australia and it's 11pm now so I would not be able to respond until tomorrow morning our time. I hope this is suitable. I will check for your response tomorrow morning and will send accordingly.
Can u try the below link. I have this saved but cant seem to attach it.
hope that helps
I just checked my books. I have four of Debbie Brown's, but that's not one of them. I hope your able to find it!
Thank you so much everyone again!!!
I can't believe how generous you all are!
Lekoli is going to send them to me soon, so thanks so much to her!
And thank you so much you all for keeping the topic going so somebody can help me.
Thanks specially to cake makar for going out of her way to help me!
(i feel like i'm giving an Oscar acceptance speech but i really want to thank you all!!! )
glad to help and glad lekoli came to the rescue! Good luck with your cake. Post a picture here if you can!
I did it! i did the cake. here are some pictures (never attached pictures before so let's see if they show up)
Of course not because I had the Debbie Brown pages my cake looked like hers but oh well...I hope the child likes it. I messed up in so many places! Plus when i was in the middle of it i had to get out of my house because is for sale and a real estate agent wanted to show it
Thank you all for your help!!!!
Came out great! Congrats!
It looks great! Congratulations!
You did a great job, very well done
I would need to get ahold of the debbie brown thomas instructions, I'm in Melbourne. If anybody is willing to scan and email them to me I'd really appreciate it.
For future reference if you are chasing a particular book try 'abe books'. They have new as well as second hand from all over the world.
