Thomas the Tank Engine Birthday Cake
Here is a Thomas the Tank Engine 3-D cake ordered for a birthday party in Summit NJ. The lemon cake has white chocolate cream filling and with more grated white Callebaut chocolate between each layer. The outside of the cake is modeled out of fondant to match Thomas' color scheme. Thomas is riding along the rails through a green field!
Sculpting Thomas' cheerful face is always a challenge, if only to get the right expression. The cake is carved and then a thin layer of buttercream allows me to attach the fondant, without losing the lines of his nose, eyes and mouth.
