Kelson's Thomas cake

Project Description

What was your source for this recipe? Other Tell us more about what inspired you. Found this cake on Pinterest, liked it, and set out to recreate my own version. Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake This cake was made using two 6" cake tiers, and two 8" cake tiers. The tiers were iced with buttercream icing. A round cake circle was decorated with fondant for the cake board. I cut out Happy Birthday letters with fondant and added those to the board. Fondant was used for the details on the cake to make the scenery come alive. Thomas was purchased and added to the cake at the last minute. My grandson squealed when he saw his Thomas cake. What are you most proud of? All of the cut outs, took time, but I think they look bright and vibrant. What advice would you give someone starting this project? When working with the fondant, make sure to roll it thin. Too heavy, and it will peel off the sides of the cake.
