Thomas the Train Cake

Finished cake above

The work in progress

I was asked to do a Thomas the Train cake.  The cake was a chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream in various shades of color.  The Thomas the Train toy is plastic as is the red caboose and the sign at the back of the cake.  The track was made of crushed grahams as the base, with black licorice and kit kats.  The rocks in the water and at the back of the grass are raisinettes.  The mountains were made of oreo coated rice krispy treats.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

A 13x9 chocolate chip cookie, topped with chocolate buttercream frosting and topped with an edible frosting sheet.

Large Cookies n Cream Ice Cream Pie

Usually the Cookies n Cream Ice Cream Pie is made in a regular pie dish, however my daughters love it so I wanted to make a large one for one of their birthdays.  So instead of using a store bought Oreo crust, I made my own and then poured the ice cream mixture over it.  This "pie" is topped with an edible frosting sheet.

Kitty Cat Cake

Every year since we moved to Ellington I've donated a cake to the Ellington Fireman's Carnival/Fair that they use at a game to raise money for the Fire Department by winning a cake.  This year I made a kitty cat cake.  The cake was chocolate with an orange colored vanilla buttercream.  I topped it with crushed oreo cookies and decorated the face with m & m's, a heart candy and pink starburst candy.
