Aren’t trains fun? I think every boy enjoys playing with trains at some time during their childhood (and some into adulthood!). When my son turned 2 this year, it was an easy decision to make a train cake.
For this cake, I used my classic chocolate cake mix and my classic white cake mix which was enough to make five train cars, one engine, and the star in the middle. The star in the middle is a little larger than a big cupcake. It’s just something that I’ve done for each of my children on their birthdays. They always get a star!
I used my son’s favorite treats to “load” the cars. I tinted vanilla icing to make the cars colorful and for the piping accents.
This cake was so much fun to make. It was even more fun to see the kids’ excitement as they saw the cake at my son’s party. CHOO! CHOO!
