This was made for a little boy who liked both Thomas & Bob and his mom couldn't make her mind up which one to have as the cake. I decided to make Bob as the model and gave him a hammer so it would look like he'd put the sign up.

I made a 3D Thomas last year for a friend's son, so this year I decided to do a patchwork.

This half sheet cake was made for a 3 year old.  His grandpa stated that all he wanted for his birthday was anything with Thomas the Tank on it ...even if it was a sock the kid would be satisfied.  Well I made him a cake with Thomas on it and he was beaming with excitement.

This is my second cake, I made it for my sons girlfriends little boy who loves Thomas. I am disappointed with the face. Somewhere between an alien and a pumpkin. I printed out a picture, then traced it onto the cake.
But when he saw the cake he got a big smile and was all excited. So that made me feel a little better.

Percy the Tank Engine from the Thomas the Tank Engine stories.  Combination of buttercream frosting and rolled fondant.  Rolled fondant was used for the tracks, train faces and roofs.

I'm experimenting with some new cookie cutters.  These are iced with MMF and then accented with Antonia74's royal icing.

Made from a simple internet pattern.  To make sure it would feed 40 people, I used 2 9x13" sheet cakes plus an 8" round cake on top. The rectangle were yellow cake, while the round cake was a chocolate mix.

I made this for a little boy's birthday.  He ate off the sides of the cake while his mom was sleeping before the party lol.  I got the idea from this website.

I made this for a friend for her son's birthday party.  I used Wilton's thomas and friends cake pan, buttercream icing and MMF for the face and some of the details.

These are no fail sugar cookies with MMF.  I changed the number to 3 to match the child's age.

I give 100% credit for this idea to cassiescakes, I loved her cake and wanted to try it myself.  I didn't have fondant so I couldn't try the fondant face but was pretty happy with it overall.  My son went nuts for it so that's all that mattered!  The name is made out of tinted no fail sugar cookies.

This is a 10" cake - I have piped Thomas, James and Percy in the entrance to the tunnels all around the cake.  The fourth tunnel is empty so Sir Topham Hatt is looking at his pocket watch - you know how he is about punctuality!  I used a brick impression mat for the brick pattern.  this cake was so much fun to do.  I can't wait until tomorrow to see how my customer likes it!  All she said was to do a Thomas cake.  She didn't care how I did it.

This is a cake I did for my son's 2nd Birthday.  He went everywhere with his little Thomas train so it was a no brainer for the type of party he'd enjoy.  I used Oreo cookies for the wheels and pretzel stix for the train tracks.  One word of caution...  do not use a confetti cake mix.  I made a mistake and stood two layers of cake up on end for the cab portion of the cake.  In the morning it had fallen over.  I suspect the candy pieces weakened it.  Good thing I took this picture before hand!  Enjoy.

I used chocolate cake with b/c icing and magic shell for the Dirt effect!!  fun to make and my son loved it!!

I am pretty pleased with how this cake turned out, considering (as usual) the pan instructions were wrong.  I can understand how people might get frustrated with cake decorating when the companies that design the pan can't even get the instructions right.

I decided to color a train track on the cake board before I covered it in clear contact paper.  I cut a piece of paper the same size as the base of the cake to be sure that my tracks would be the right size.  I wanted it to look sort of like a coloring book, I think it worked!  :)  Fun cake to do!

For the shape of the tank I used a 9x13 pan for the bottom and a mini loaf pan for the top. The gun is a chocolate covered cookie finger. I put plastic soldiers all around and on it so my son could keep them afterward (the cake was for his birthday).

This was made for stepson for his third birthday who is crazy for Thomas!  The railroad "tracks" are made from Stringers and the "grass" is desiccated coconut mixed with green liquid food coloring.  The cake was choclate cake and the coconut seemed to go very well with the chocolate.  The "trees" are coconut covered marshmallows with candy stick "trunks", which I think you can find at any grocery store.  For any little ones that love Thomas, this is a quick and easy cake!

my first all fondant cake, which gave me confidence to try more complicated projects. My nephew loved it - unlike the mothers who came to collect children who had just eaten all the red part and were bouncing off the walls!

This cake was made for a 9 year old boy, who loves army stuff.  Because, they didn't need so much cake, the tank was made of styrofoam and then covered with MMF. The cake was a yellow cake with buttercream icing and fondant rocks.

I got the idea from the Wilton site from 2 wonderful decorators: hpjmon and geena. I cannot get credit for the decoration either since it was mostly done by my husband. I started decorating it but had to leave and when I returned it was finished. What a wonderful husband and cake partner I have!

This is the cake that my husband and I made for our next door neighbour's 50th birthday.  I baked the cake and my husband shaped it.  I also covered the cake but the rest was done by my husband.  He coloured it and put the other accessories on it to make it as close to the real thing as possible!

This cake is supposed to resemble an M-1 Abrams tank used in Operation Iraqi Freedom. It was a Groom's cake for a wedding. My husband who is in the army reserves helped me out a lot on what it should look like :) thanks to everyone w/ tank cakes for inspiration too! Choc. Ghiradelli fudge cake recipe but with Hershey s choc. powder. Choc/vanilla buttercream dream frosting. Fondant (Satin Ice) tinted/flavored with choc. powder. Nilla wafers crushed for the sand. Gun barrel is a dowel rod covered in fondant.
