You could just make a round cake with thomas's face on top, and then primary colors or railroad track designs on the side...suggesting that because it would be pretty simple as a beginner, and you don't have to worry about a pan you don't have.

There are also some cute cakes in the galleries here that don't use the pan, and on this link that may help

Good luck!

If you want a really easy idea you could make a basic cake and pipe out tracks, then place some Thomas trains on top. Then he'd have the trains to add to his collection. You could take some waffle style ice cream cones and frost them to resemble trees too. One year I did this for my son and found the train that had his year on it... seems like it was his 3rd bday, but now can't remember. Anyway, then all you'd have to do is pipe borders and write Happy Birthday. icon_wink.gif

the first thomas cake i made was using a swiss roll and a sponge cake, cut in 2 and covered in sugarpaste - i'm not proud of it but it was quite simple, I have since made Debbie brown's thomas cake - which took ages. or you could just cut the shape and decorate it 2D

AC Moore sells a Thomas card game that comes in a cool plastic case. If you laid that on the cake, and decorated around it, it would look pretty cool. I'm thinking of doing that for my son's b-day cake. I'm afraid to try making tracks with frosting, my hand isn't too steady yet!
