This Train Birthday Party Cake is just too cute! I think this idea is creative and really thinks outside of the box. Why does the design have to be on the top of the cake? Why is that how we always think of how a cake should be decorated? This train works perfectly on the side like it’s riding on the train track of the cake plate.
If you are like me and love to play with the icing bag but I’m still not quite at perfections level, and I’m not sure I’ll ever be, this idea is perfect for us. Cutting out the pieces and putting them together on the side of the cake. What could be easier and more fun? If anyone tries this train birthday cake themselves, I’d like to see what you’ve done.

This train cake was made by a friend of mine for her son’s 3rd birthday. I can’t even begin to tell you how cute it was. Every train was iced with different colors and each were embellished with varied candies. You can see that the smoke stack was 2 stacked marsh mellows. AND I can’t even begin to tell you how hard she worked on it. So many hours. Because I knew that she had put so many hours into making them, I couldn’t bear the though of actually eating them!
The cake was made with the Williams Sonoma Cake pan. I’m not sure if this one does but most of the cake pans come with a cake recipe that works best for laying down in the grooves to form the shapes. I don’t know that they sell the pans in the stores any longer but I would bet you can find them on eBay. After making the cake once, the likely hood of you making it again are slim.
The biggest thing to remember here is that the icing DOES NOT have to be perfect. The kids will love the train shapes and colors no matter what!
A Train Birthday Party can be so colorful and fun without having to be Thomas the Train. Here a is a beautiful table with a train spread across the table and each train has it’s own special decorations. I’ll be doing a post specifically on the cake so look for it.
This table has a few flowers to tie in the colors, a plastic throw away table cloth, Colorful bowls with a few candies and confetti scattered around. It was so picturesque.
This train birthday party was at the child’s home and we all walked down to the local park for some child entertainment.
