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!

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!

Beary Sweet Train Baptism Cake | DIY Cakes


Happy Thanksgiving Weekend Everyone! Well at least to all my Canadian friends :) 
Today I have a Baptism Cake to share with you all! I was asked if I could make a cake for a Baptism this weekend. Funny how people think I'm a baker or something now, LOL! Of course as usual I said yes, hopefully, they will be happy with the results. I was sent a photo of some inspiration... Two bears, cross, blanket, and especially the train were musts. The photo I found came from Kimberly, an amazingly talented cake artist! I do have to give her credit, thank you, Kimberly, from Kimberly Dawn Cakes for the inspiration, love your work! 

Look at that "Bear" Bum! Isn't it a CUTIE! You could almost bite it... well technically you could, haha!
