When Corban turned 4, he wanted another train cake, this time the engine Gordon (the biggest and strongest engine in the Thomas series). Well, at this point I had a new 4 year old, an almost 2 year old, and a 6 week old. I just wasn't up to making a BIGGER version of this cake!
So I went simpler, much simpler.
I just baked two 13 x 9" cakes, put them side by side on the board, and frosted with white buttercream. I added a blue sky with white fluffy clouds, a bunch of colored sprinkles and icing flowers and bushes, and a track made from melted chocolate, laid on top of graham cracker crumbs. I also made the fence from melted chocolate, just piped onto wax paper and frozen until solid. I stuck his actual Gordon engine on top for the finishing touch.
