Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was simply fantastic! This cake was simply fantastic! It was simple to make -- it only took a little over 30 minutes, and it tasted great, too. I replaced the smokestack with a "3" candle for my son's third birthday and put a Thomas face on the front, which I painted onto a cookie. People were coming out of the woodwork to compliment me, and I'm a cake novice. I couldn't have been more pleased. Mine looked just like the picture. If I can do it, you can too!

The first year I followed the recipe exactly and it was very cute. Then I used the basic recipe but made it into "Thomas", the next year, "Percy" It is fine with the pound cake but, I made a sheet cake and cut it into the peices and it worked great and tasted better. Worth the time, very cute cake.

Made this for my son's 4th birthday as he is a big fan of Thomas the tank engine and he absolutely loved it. We used angel food cake baked in loaf pans. He had fun deciding which colors of Lifesavers to use for the wheels and for one of the train cars we decorated the top with foil wrapped chocolate coins. What a fun project and great memory we will always share!!

I made this cake for my grandson's birthday only I baked my own cakes (chocolate fudge) using small loaf pans. Because I wanted to make this the day ahead and not have to refrigerate it, I used buttercream frosting. It came out fantastic. What an adorable cake and it was a big hit with everyone especially my grandson! This cake is definitely a home run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is great. This cake is great. We used blue berries instead of the cereal, teddygrams instead of the animal cookies, and pretzel rods insead of the licorice. We put fruit roll ups on top of the prezel rods and made a passanger car with the little bears. My son loved this and helped make his own cake which made it even more special.

I made this with strawberry cake mix for my daughter and used white frosting, colored each car a different color. Made it look more like a little girl train, decorated with different candies. I used lifesavers for the wheels and even some teddy grahams for train riders! Received lots of compliments! It was great!
