Seeing Dad’s face when he saw his birthday cake was probably the best part of my weekend. Dad loves old fashioned trains. Mum even took him on a trip on the Orient Express once ( how sweet is that!). Mum and I have been planning this cake for a while. She bought this mini train set a while back thinking it would be the perfect size to go on a cake. Despite it coming with a more complex track, we decided to keep it simple and have it just run in a loop around the cake. The track was secured to the board using double sided tape to make sure it ran smoothly. I made a 7″ cake so that it would fit inside of the track. It was a vanilla cake filled with raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream which I then covered in blue fondant. I kept the decoration simple so that the moving train would be the focus and to keep it feeling more grown up. I made the clouds out of flower paste so that they would stand up and attached the large cloud to clear cake pop sticks to look like it was floating. I hope Dad’s cake was one of the best parts of his weekend too. Happy Birthday Dad! x
