Thomas the Train Birthday Cake | DIY Cakes

"They're two they're four they're six and eight
Shunting trucks and hauling freight 
red and green and brown and blue
they're the really useful crew"

Do you have that song stuck in your head now? Hehe! I remember those years when my son Tomas was infatuated with Thomas the Train. I miss those days 😢

Well this weekend I had the pleasure of making a Thomas the Train Cake for another little friend! Happy Birthday Sam! I hope you have an awesome Birthday Party!!!

So without further ado here is Thomas!

Thomas the Train Birthday Cake | DIY Cakes

This is quite a tall cake, approx 6" in height baked in 9" cake pans.
The bottom layer is chocolate flavored and the top vanilla. The entire cake was frosted with vanilla buttercream icing, covered and decorated with fondant.

I love how cute these 3D clouds and the trees turned out!
With every cake I make I learn something new. Sometimes I wish I had more time to take actual decorating classes... but who has time these days! Thank goodness for Mr.You Tube, my go-to an instructor, lol!

Happy Crafting whatever it may be! :)


  1. Ilda,
    Love the cake! It's one of the best Thomas's I've ever seen. It looks so good. My 2 year-old daughter loves Thomas, and if I could make a cake like this, she'd be over the moon!

  2. This is so fabulous! I am always intrigued by your cakes. You are an amazing artist, not only with paper, but with frosting and fondant as well.

  3. Adorable! My kids are too old for this, but I love cute kid's cakes...pinning to my kids cakes board!
