Thomas birthday cake

I layered 4 round cakes (9; 8; 8; 9 inches each). Then I cut an arc out of the front side.

Covered with a crumb coat.

Red brick building and gray base complete.

Everything is iced.  Blue roof, red building, gray base, and green doors.

All done!  Final touch was a piped track and a set of bath toy trains.

Crunchy's birthday is next week. His party is tomorrow. He is into all things Thomas the Tank Engine. After checking out hundreds of pictures of Thomas themed cakes, I decided to try the round house. Crunchy calls it Tidmuth Shed. I started with 2 8 inch and 2 9 inch pans
