I am new to this site and am hoping that someone can help me design a 3d Thomas the Train series cake. I am trying to create the character, "Rosie"

Any ideas where to start??
Has anyone done this before?

Hi there. Welcome to CC!!!

So, there are a lot of ways to carve a cake and then make it look like Rosie. You can follow Elise Strauss' way, and bake 2 9x13 cakes that are 1" tall and carve from there. Or you could buy the Stand Up 3-D train from Wilton (at your local hobby store) and just work with that. Or you could make a "scenery" cake, and build a cake that spirals up and decorate it like a mountain and put the "Rosie" train on that. If you are looking for good "Thomas" cakes, I suggest that you "search" here, and then contact the person whose train you like the best for some more concrete help.

Good luck!

Wow!!!! What a great tutorial!!!! I will, at this point, say that if you use the Wilton fondant you will wish that you hadn't. I would recomend (that I get spelling lessons) that you use the Wilton Gum Paste (or Fondant) for ONLY the face, and either make your own fondant for the body, or buy a good fondant that tastes yummy. Wilton does NOT make a tasty fondant!!!!!
