I am making a 1st birthday cake for the son of a friend of mine. He loves lions and monkees. I was thinking of doing some of those circus wagons or cars whatever they are called with animals in them but I am stumped on what to do for the front car, I don't really want to do a train engine. It will be sitting on a sheet cake. Any ideas would be appreciated. TIA

a vintage love bug car with clowns. Every circus has clowns and they should lead the animals, right?

If you do do a train engine, you could have a monkey in an engineer's cap and bandana leaning out the window, that would be super cute!

Do you not want to do a train engine becuase of the traditional color or design? Because if that's it, you can change the colors to make it fun and zoo-y. Take a look at this Little People Zoo Train and see if you like that. if not, maybe you'd like to have an elephant pulling the train or something.
