$300 plus cake

and i'd attach the chimney with all the doodads, smoke, to the board the train will sit on -- no worries -- not that you asked -- not that you didn't know that -- no extra charge --

How about getting a couple cans of Wilton Color Mist in gold and spray it on lightly until you  get the depth of gold you want. I think this would be a lot cheaper and easier to apply.

K8memphis $300 for the train plus the cake ??

I was going to charge $220 for the cake and $50 for the train!  I’m terrible at costing out cakes

I think the idea of spraying it with an edible gold spray is a great idea.  A few light coats that dry in between would be much easier than trying to paint it. 

The Wilton is good.  I prefer ChefMaster or PME, but they're more expensive.

yes -- that stuff pumping out the chimney is gravity defying -- takes expertise -- yes sculptures cost a lot more than a cake
