This picture is from a few years ago before I knew anything about photographing for a blog. I used a Nordic Ware pan that I purchased at Meijer for the train cake.
Here are my notes: I made a large chocolate sheet cake and a vanilla train cake. I used dowel rods to help secure the train cake to the chocolate cake. The cake is frosted with chocolate buttercream frosting and vanilla buttercream frosting. My three year old insisted that the train had to have a face like Thomas so I made a face out of gum paste and brushed it with silver dust. He also wanted smoke coming from the smokestack so I cut up a large Campfire marshmallow and sprayed it lightly with black coloring spray.
