Train cake

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I was just wondering if anyone has a tutorial for a cake like this.?? I have not covered a cake shaped like this before.
It looks like the one in this pic has the fondant cut into shapes and put on, is that hard to do.??

Thanks.!!!

I made this cake almost identically a few months ago. You can just bake a couple 12" square layers in a firm carve-able cake, and carve your train engine, cart and carriage from these. Stack and fill to create your higher parts.

Use a small flat spatula to apply your ganache.

Cover each part with one piece of fondant, the cut out all your small pieces of fondant to use as the decorations.

It's a bit fiddly, but a fun cake to make!

I have a pic of mine on my FB page.

Also did you let the fondant dry a little before you put it on the cake or did you stick it straight on.?

You can do it either way. I usually just do it straight after covering.
