Train Cake for Christmas

January 4, 2011

While I was home for Christmas visiting my family, my sister-in-law made an adorable railroad cake from a mold. I have a 3-year-old nephew who is obsessed with trains right now so I had to make another one for him for Christmas day. This cake is so easy to make and is really a crowd pleaser. It took some time to decorate but was worth the look on my nephew’s face when I showed it to him. I used candy like Twizzlers, M&M’s, Red Hots, gumdrops, and chocolate chips and then pressed them on with frosting using a piping kit. The mold comes with a photo for decorating inspiration and a recipe but I just used a boxed yellow cake mix and it turned out fine. This is a great idea for a family activity where the kids can decorate with candy and frosting. It’s great for the holidays, a birthday party, or just because you love your nephew.
