Thomas The Train
My nephew was just nuts over Thomas and wanted a cake to look like him, so I borrowed one of his toys to match it.
Fondant Wedding Cake
This was my first time working with fondant on a real cake. I was quite pleased with the result. The bottom tier was made up of seven 5" round tiers. The 12" tier was centered on the base, and the 9" and 6" tiers were aligned at the back with the 12" tier so as to leave room for the candles and flowers to sit on each tier.
This cake is about a 1" tall 1/2 sheet covered in green buttercream. The balls were made using Wilton's mini ball pan and each were iced with buttercream stars. This is my second attempt at this theme. The first time I made this, it was for my husbands birthday just shortly after I finished Wilton course 1. It took me 6 1/2 hours to decorate that time and he wouldn't eat it, just carried it around to friends and families houses to show it off.
