Two years have flown by and the most amazing little boy celebrated his 2nd birthday! In what is now a tradition of making challenging cakes (2009, 2010) for my nephew (and future niece) I was challenged to try my hands at Thomas. Initially, the request included dry ice smoke, but that was quickly rules out and we settled on a smaller version of Thomas to celebrate the day.
Devil’s Food cake with Vanilla Buttercream was used on the inside. I added height and created the engine with rice krispie treats.
I can’t take all the credit for this cake however. My amazing, soon to be husband =-D, is the one responsible for Thomas’ face. His patience and careful hand is what was needed for this project.
This has got to be my favorite cake up until this point. Having my nephew point at Thomas the whole night and say train, was enough to melt me to goo.
