Is this too much cake???


For a 2 year old and 15 other 2 year olds to appreciate?

It sure was for the adults. We all just stared at it, mouthes agape. Look at all the little hands gathered around waiting for their piece of the train to eat. It was really cute.

The cake was for our long awaited birthday party for The Happy Boy as he turned 2. His birthday was in december but a lot of his classmates and baby group we away or busy so we chose January.

In honour of my sons love of trains we chose a Thomas theme - although I do not belive that he has ever actually watched Thomas on TV, and my mother-in-law (MIL) made this for him. Zoinks.

The only thing more surprising than the cake was trying to clean it up hours later. I ended up using a piece of the track (licorice) to scrape away all the icing, and other yummies that made that cake what it was.

Okay, the only thing I have to say is - who sent you the photo?? I didn't, and they are on my camera. And you told me you didn't know how to post photos! Hmph!

As for the cake, it was just unbelievable.

But not a Thomas theme, just trains, because The Happy Boy likes them!

Jill - Yeah, we do have some left over. I'm actually afraid to eat one of the trains. They looked that good...

Shroomie - Too bad we are not all coming down to Atlanta this year. Father-in-law has family just north-west of the city and we were there last summer. I'd commission my MIL to make a special Dora cake for your twins. She'd love the challenge... and the exposure.

Naomi - Your mom can bake, you can cook... ahhh, how lucky am I.
