Two-Two Train Cake
This design is taken from a Pink Cake Box cake that the parents of the birthday boy liked. Pink Cake Box makes some of my favorite cake designs though so I was excited to have the chance to try this one out!
The cake was a sour cream chocolate cake iced in vanilla bean Italian meringue buttercream. Both tiers were covered in a buttercream fondant which tastes far better than regular fondant (although I find it harder to work with!).
The decorations are all hand made with fondant. I must say cutting the train cars out was far more difficult than I expected! I love how the big red fondant "2" turned out on the top of the cake. This was my second attempt at a topsy turvy cake and it did go more smoothly than the first attempt but I'm looking forward to perfecting it further!
