I read the first page way back when you first posted and I am so happy to have come back for the pics because they are GORGEOUS. Your kid is one lucky little guy . What a spread!

My baby is 5 months old... I have a bit of time before he eats his first cake!

ps. the tracks look great. I wouldn't have a problem eating off clean tracks whatsoever

My family = me + dh & ds +

If you use cake release they should pop right out. I'd worry more about them cooking properly because that is a dense batter.

are the littletrains pretty much individual servings? ds will be 3 if that makes any difference
Yes, they are roughly the size of a large cupcake. When baking, they took about the same time as a pan of cupcakes.

Figuring that plates were not meant to be eaten, and most people dont have an issue with cake on a plate...

That is adorable! I like the suggestion of wrapping the train tracks in plastic wrap.

Perhaps place the tracks on a 2x4 and wrap the 2x4 with the track on it so that the top surface is smooth, then place the cake cars on top.
