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?
