Thomas the Tank Engine Cake


 When we went to South Carolina to visit family, we had a birthday party for five people.... since my great nephew was the youngest and was turning 5 (or maybe 6), we let him and his mother pick the cake.  It is a double layer sheet cake - half white cake and half chocolate.  We did our transfer technique that I teach for Wilton course 1 to get the outline of Thomas. Then a quick outline and star tip with vibrant colors to make Thomas.
 The smoke and tree tops are dimensional decorating.  The tracks are also made with frosting and a basket weave tip, the rocks are made with tip 7 and of course we forgot to bring the grass tip to make grass. The flowers we added were for my Mom, who LOVES flowers, her birthday is April 1st!  Happy Birthday Mom, Dad, Alijah, Becca, and Andy!  Love you all!!
