I just got a request for a 3D train. It is 4 cars that are holding baby items. It is for a baby shower. I'm not sure that I can do this. I need any ideas on how to make this work ASAP. I need to get back with them to let them know. TIA icon_eek.gif

I've got the Wilton 3D train pan but I think it's discontinued now. It's one of my most treasured posessions. If you can find one, that would be the thing to do.

It is suppose to be 4 seperate cars. The engine and 3 cars behind with baby items inside each car. The cars are upright.

I've made passenger/frieght cars just by carving and stacking sheet cakes (about 5"x8" or whatever).

I did that one a few years ago - you should warn the mom ALL the kids wanted a piece of Thomas and I ended up with a LOT of cake left over. :-/ These trains are so much fun, though.

I made train cars, cutting a sheet cake into the needed sizes, as I was making a circus train, I made royal icing bars, to keep the wild animals in, which I modeled with choco paste. I put the entire train on a board, made train tracks, with craft gun, the ties I made out of fondant. I used cookies cumbs between the ties and along the tracks, added so grass to the cake board and was done.

I made a train last year for a baby shower with an engine and 2 cars. I believe for all of them I just made them in loaf pans and then cut as needed. For the engine I cut a bit of the back off and put it up top (for the conductor to sit LOL) and then also baked some cake in a soup can for the front of the engine. Hope that helps.
