Just to clarify, the train will be running around the outside of the cake not through it.

Sounds wonderful and a really fun project! Do you want it to be a realistic city or more a animation type? You could base some of the buildings on actual buildings in yours/his town or landmarks from a nearby city centre and terraced houses should be easier to fill in some of the streets between more elaborate buildings. You can add as much detail as you want/time allows. How big is is going to be? Oh such a fun project!

One other thing, do you want actual cake or could you use gingerbread? I got this book as a present and it has AMAZING houses in it, I'm sure you could make them much smaller or just use it for inspiration.
