This is another candy train done last weekend, July 18, 2009
It's Timothy 2nd birthday celebration today. He loves train sets so mummy has asked me to bake a train cake for him. So designer & I came up with this one.
She wanted a 1.5kg chocolate cake made into a train set, with an engine head & 3 boxcars. Instead of candies, mummy wanted fresh fruits as decoration on top of the boxcars. Since it's a chocolate cake, we frosted the boxcars with different very bright shades of yellow, blue & green. Mummy has wanted kiwi on green car & mango on yellow car but we thought there's no contrast in the colour so kiwi was on yellow & mango on blue. Just fruits on the cars will be too plain & may not attract kids that much so for the green car, we've topped it with skittles ! Different type of candies such as marsmallow, liquorice allsorts, jelly beans, etc. have been used in this cake, hope little Timothy had a great time at his party !
