I love to make cakes. I am by no means a professional, but I don't think I am half bad. What really matters is the reaction on my kids' face when they see their cake for the first time. It makes the hours of labor worth it all.
This is my 4th Thomas the Tank Engine themed cake in 4 years. Three of them have been for Doble. I don't know what I am going to do if he asks me for another one. I am running out of ideas. I may have one more up my sleeve. However, I would love it if he came up with something else. We are all Thomas'd out. All of us but Doble. However, how could I say no to a face like the following picture. It makes it all worth it.
He was so excited for his cake and even told me that his cake made him laugh. Not because it was silly looking, but because it made him so happy. I love the reaction my kids give me when they see their cakes.
So some may say that this cake is a "simple" cake. Can I just let you know that I didn't have a stencil or mold to make the brick on the side of the roundhouse? I used a single pez candy and imprinted the brick onto the building. I also color ALL my fondant and to get the colors to come out exactly how you want them can be very time consuming, especially when you are working in large amounts.
Owen was trying to help Doble blow out his candle. Luckily he didn't blow it out all the way.
Happy Birthday sweet Doble. I hope you LOVED your cake. Mommy loved makig it for you.
Once again the cake was covered in fondant. I used his Thomas toys are decorations. The cake was a "Too Much Chocolate" cake with cream cheese frosting. He likes chocolate and it was alot of it.
