Rated 4 out of 5 by TXAggie from I used this idea a few months ago to make a train birthday cake for a 4 yr old boy. He wanted it in the "unstoppable" train colors, red and yellow. I followed most of the instructions provided for this idea (with a connected trailer and cake on top). My biggest problem was trying to get everything done in the suggested order, the space is small and you are adding a lot of details! Beware, you will need to mix quite a few colors for this cake, so start a day or two early if you plan on making dark colors (i.e. red, black, dark blue). That way you have all your icing ready to go on the day you bake your cake! I made the conductor's face using color flow (and made extra faces for future cakes, while I was at it). Only make a 1/2 batch if you plan on doing this. Have lots of fun! Easily customizable to your colors/ideas. The only trouble I had was the cake tried to crack inbetween the two cars, probably because this cake is long, so try and support it well when you moved it around.
