Last year, I decided to have a train party for my son’s birthday.
Another birthday, another crazy cake.
Yes, the train cake was actually 5 feet long.
Why was it 5 feet long, you ask?
Because there were a lot of people…
Because I wanted 6 different cake flavors…
Because the cake pans were large…
OK, I don’t know why it was that big—other than I must be crazy.
The wheels were Oreos. The tracks were wafer cookies and Oreo Sticks. There was even a car full of M&Ms.
The kids loved it!
So… what did I do after I finished making this cake?
I made cupcakes and a small cake, of course!
I made the little trains with chocolate molds.
And I think this is the first time I ever piped frosting– the little train tracks.
I was very proud of myself. 🙂
And here is the finished cake.
Yeah, I didn’t take a good picture before the party– and I was too busy during the party.
I’ve since learned my lesson. 🙂
