Hi everyone I am new here and would really appreciate advice on how to create the cylinder shape part of a train. Thanks

If you want it to be cake (rather than Rice Krispie treats or styrofoam), have you thought about baking the batter in a can?

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Or you could make a swiss roll? That would have reasonable structural integrity, although it may take a bit of practice to get it completely round.

Or you could cut rounds and sandwhich them together with filling.

That’s what I'd do; and use a tough filling like ganache and a thick crumb coat too so your fondant doesn’t compress the cylinder too much.

 

For mine I just carved at a madeira cake until it was right but I wish I'd done above!!
