This project let the cake designers be kids again! We were given a plastic train track set with windmill and station, Thomas, Percy, Mr. Toppum Hat and free reign to create a completely edible Sodor Island.
We started with a frutta di bosco layer cake as our base. Chef Gonzalez built a tunnel out of sponge for the trains to go through, and we decorated with fondant rocks. We made all of the trees edible and included a little pond with some ducks.
The train set was battery operated, so once the batteries went into the engines, they chugged along, bringing the cake to life.
Happy second birthday Dominic! We hope you loved your cake as much as we enjoyed making it!
