Alex's Thomas the Tank Engine - $100
Another Thomas the Tank Engine cake. Thomas is very popular with little pre-school boys. This cake is a flat cake. In fact it's two flat cakes placed together then covered first in a buttercream icing and then with a fondant icing. Thomas was drawn in royal icing and the 'smoke' was marshmallows. The customer had found the little Thomas set in a store and wanted me to incorporate it in the cake. As the track was too small to go right around the cake, I made it go into the cake at the back, then made a couple of tunnel openings on the icing so it looked as though the train was going through the cake. Please note I can't source the Thomas toy train anymore but can put a cheaper version train and track for an extra $5.00.
