Awesome looking spread! The ribbon looks great under your cake trains - good solution!!

(dd here now says "that looks cool mom, maybe we can make a cake like that. . ." since her birthday is coming up. . . I can't handle this 3 y/o wishy-washyness about cake preferences!! I insist on sticking to the strawberry cake we agreed on!!)

Oh dear. Both my kids just saw those picks. I guess I know what I'm attempting the next birthday that comes around.

Awesome work, OP

OP, the cake is so cute!! The ribbon idea was genius.

This actually reminded me...for those of you who mentioned you'd like to do something similar, there's a train cake pan on sale for $19.99 here.

I saw it the other day and was thinking it would be fun to do something with it for a winter holiday party (yeah, I know it's *July*), like a Christmas candy train.

georgeous

Beautiful cake. Looks fun to make. Wish I had that time

But I would still use parchment paper because it is not as absorbent as ribbon

I didn't even read all the pages. But I would have assumed they were bought new and wouldn't have batted an eye.

Personally I would put a clear saran wrap or something between them but thats more of an clean up issue for myself then having to wash all the tracks.

Looked at the pics and OMG how cute

I put wax paper under the ribbon which is what all the cake decorating things say to do. Worked too, I even put a large dab of frosting on each piece of ribbon to hold the cake in place and it didn't seep onto the tracks. I also bought water-resistant ribbon which is what you are supposed to use if you are wrapping a cake with ribbon.


ETA: for anyone who wants to make this cake, please use "Cake Release" and a box cake mix. Real cake is too heavy for these specialty pans and it just doesn't bake right, hence my need for a yummy adult cake! If it is going to be sitting out longer than about an hour, do not use a buttercream. I did half butter/half shortening and it started to melt after about 2 hours. I've done full shortening in the past and that stays much better.

Great cake! It turned out really cute and yummy looking!

Cute idea!

I did an "ABC" theme one year and used my old blocks from when I was a kid to spell the name. I set them on top of plastic wrap. I wasn't worried about what people would think, but I didn't want the frosting to get on them and ruin them.

That is too cute! My ds would LOVE that cake (he's train obsessed). I've thought about getting that pan many times, but can't justify the purchase (ds doesn't eat cakes, at all, but would eat banana muffins... but I'm not sure they would actually come out of the pan).
post #119 of 126
Oh man, that is really cool. It would not even have crossed my mind to not eat it, even if it was directly on the track. I wouldn't have called anyone who didn't eat it ridiculous to their face, but I would probably roll my eyes.

thats awesome!!!! and thanks for the sale link, i was wanting to get one for ds's birthday coming up, but the cost was too much.


are the littletrains pretty much individual servings? ds will be 3 if that makes any difference
