For a 4 year old girl who loves Thomas the train.  I am a little disappointed in the blemishes and bubbly buttercream, but overall I think it turned out pretty cute.  I hope the birthday girl likes it anyway!

Two marble pound cakes of chocolate, almond, raspberry and rum baked in simple loaf pans, torted and filled and then simply iced. Decorated with fondant train tracks and fondant pepples with the help of my five year old. The thomas tank engines are toy trains.

My FH and I are both firefighters on two separate fire departments.  For his 25th birthday, I made this cake.  It was my first "shaped figure"cake pan.  I didn't realize how hard getting the windows and such would be.  He absolutely loved it.  Now he wants me to make one for "hose testing" days and summer get togethers with his fire department.

Okay, here's my shot at Thomas the Train. Used Wendy's tutorial for help with carving the cake. Instead of bc, covered mine in fondant. I find it alot easier to work with. Unfortunately, I carved the engine smaller than Thomas' face so I'm crazy with the way that looks. And the dimensions are alittle off. Oh well, I know what to do next time. ;-)

This is a replica of a cake I did just about a month ago.  I 
really don't like doing the same cake more than once but the creative
juices just weren't flowing.  I decided not to exert myself and just do
the same thing because I still have 2 more cakes to do this weekend 
LOL!  Thomas is a FBCT.

Thomas the Tank Engine cake made using Wendy's tutorial... thank you!!!  This went together quite smoothly.  I used MMF for the face and should have done it much sooner, as I had to freeze it to make it solid for the party.  I used a 12x18 sheet pan

This is a birthday cake for a little girl of one of the director's where I work. It is my first carved cake...Design from Debbie Brown's book and thanks to Merissa who gave me tips on how to do this!  I was pretty pleased with it overall and I really learned a lot...mostly that it takes ages to do!!!! Thanks for looking!

Thomas was made using the Wilton Choo-Choo Train pan. I used a pound cake recipe after a collapsing train incident 2 years ago. He's frosted in buttercream.

Every thing is edible except the candle, used 1 cup cake for the Engine and face, and baked the other cakes in mini loaf pans, used fondant, candy and BC. Alex loved it

I made this for my train loving son's 3rd birthday.  It was pre-cake decorating class, but still turned out pretty cute.  The adults ate the main cake (spice with cream cheese icing).  I made chocolate mini engine cakes (using mini-pan) for each of the kids.  They each had to find their place at the table by looking for their names spelled out by magnetic letters.

This was a big cake. It made 40 party-sized slices. There was three layers of Choc WASC with raspberry and then 2 layers of scratch vanilla pound with a hint of almond with banana filling. It was a big undertaking, but was a huge hit!!

This is the cake I made for my son's 3rd birthday.  While there are a few Thomas kits out there, I decided to 'wing' it with the Wilton pan and made my own fondant face.

This cake was done for a retired Deputy Fire Chief. I found the design of the truck in Debbie Brown's  book "Naughty Cakes", minus the naked firemen. lol
It's a 10" square cake, cut in half and stacked, then covered in fondant. Fairly easy to do. :-)

Another fire truck inspired by the many pics here on CC. The ladders are RI and the wheels are choco donuts. Learned alot from this one!! It's cut from an 11x15 and is actually sitting on another sheet cake. has a good diagram on how to cut the truck from a sheet cake.

This is a half sheet cake, half choc. half vanilla. The family I made this for doesn't like my (or any) buttercream, so I use Rich's Whipped topping-they LOVE it. Thomas is FBCT.

Thanks to ksgirl, I used your idea from your photo, to use the train track border.

This is my 2nd T.T.T. cake.  This was for a client.  I made this one about 1/5 the scale of my original one and this one is covered in Satin Ice Fonant whereas the first one was covered completely in BC.  I also airbrushed this cake vs. dying the fondant which I feel produced much deeper and richer color!  The new techniques of fondant and airbrushing allowed me to cut my work hours in half on this cake.  Which is good because I had four cakes due this week!

I was asked to make a fire engine cake for a boy who loves Fireman Sam, so as I have the Debbie Brown book with instructions for just that, this is what I made.  I think the adults got more of a kick out of it than he did - they're not used to seeing novelty cakes like this!

It is 10" x 5" and 5" high, vanilla sponge cake, filled with alternate layers of IMBC and raspberrry jam (with the seeds removed!).

This is the same cake I also uploaded to the "Truck" category, but this is a different view (other side). I made a kit of this cake to give to my 
Course 2 students (I teach the Wilton Method of cake decorating). The store I teach in sells my kits too. This takes a bit of effort with all the royal icing parts and color flow parts and to build the special raised base, but the results are worth the effort!
