Hi - I am trying to do a 3D Thomas the Train cake. I am using a tutorial that I found on the internet. The only question is that there doesn't seem to be any support (boards and dowels) in the cake. The back of the cake is almost 8 inches high. I'm just afraid that it will tip over or fall apart without support. Has anyone done one of these or can offer some help. Thanks

You have to put boards and dowels in your cake - or it's going to end up in the floor.

I put two layers of cake, board, two layers of cake, board, etc. And then put the dowels in.

Hope this helps.

does anyone else have a train tutorial to share? I'm also making a thomas 3-d cake for my son's birthday in a couple weeks. Just did my first 3-d cake ever last week (a yacht) and found the experience challenging but fun. Looking forward to thomas. icon_smile.gif
