Ryan's 3rd birthday

So Ryan wanted a Thomas birthday cake for his 3rd birthday. To make the cake i found a tutorial onthe internet which i base most the cake on, but also used serval othe references since no Thomas toy is th esame, I had to use what toys i had in the house. And being an Architect i also had to try and get it to scale the best i could! I mouled this cake by hand from a 12x18 inch 1.2 sheet pan. This is the largest cake i have ever baked. The cake which was chocolate filled the entire kichen aid mixer to the brim!

I also froze the cake in advance as suggested (first time i have done this to), but it really helped with moulding the cake, and did not impair on the taste of the cake at all! Thomas's face, wheels and lights were made from fondant. the rest was frosting, including the coal in the back of Thomas which I piped individually.
The cake was a big success, and made my little boy very happy! The entire cake was eaten!

I also made cupcakes in yellow cake and iced them in blue royal icing. the toppingscame from a cake box mix that I bought whilst in England containing edible rice paper images of Thomas and Friends and royal icing mini train sprinkles! Perfect!
