For my nephews 3rd B-Day I made him this 5 piece Thomas cake. The train cars are cakes baked in small loaf pans & the train is a 3-D cake mold. I used three 13x19 cake boards to build the track on & sprinkled colored coconut shavings for grass. The cars are hooked together with pull apart style twizzlers & the have tootsie roll axles w/ Oreo cookie wheels. The train track is made from black icing, rice crispies & chocolate covered wafer cookies. Each car is "loaded" with different cargo. The decorating took about 4 hours.
