Toddler Tuesday: Train Cake

We had a birthday at our house recently and I wanted to share the cake I made with you.
This cake was so easy to make and would be easy to make larger by adding more train cars.

For this cake I used:
  • 1 box cake mix
  • 1 can frosting
  • decorator frosting in colors needed
  • ice cream cone
  • 2 bread loaf pans

I baked my cake in two loaf pans, it took just under 40 minutes, and then after they cooled I cut the top so it was flat. I then cut one loaf in half. I used the domed part of the cake (that I cut off) as the top of the coal car. E suggested afterword that I should have cut the front of the train into a 'V' shape which I agree would have made it look more like a train. For other cars it would be fun to do one with animals (use animal crackers), or one with cars on it. But anyway, B loved it and it was red like James so he was happy. I'm already planning next years cake using this same idea, can you see the pickup truck?
