How to make Thomas train fondant?..



Hello my darlings!

This here is an absolute delight! It’s a delicious cake I baked over the weekend for the birthday party of two three years old siblings – Jack and Jodie. The cake itself is a vanilla sponge cake with whipped cream and apricot jam, which is the perfect combination for children! 🙂

Since I’ve already posted the recipe and steps on how to make the sponge cake, I will only explain how to make the fondant Thomas train, but will of course link the sponge cake post.

As I mentioned before in various posts, when making decorations out of fondant, you must start 5-6 days beforehand in order to allow enough drying time. I did the same for this cake… so all those little flowers, the stones, the trees and the wonderful train were made 5 days in advance. It was actually my first time making a train out of fondant so I was more or less a bundle of nerves the whole weekend, but I really like the final outcome and I hope you do too! 🙂

Without further ado, surrounded by train toys, pictures of trains, magazines of Thomas trains and other gizmos, I got my baking hat on and set off…

Blue, red, black, white and grey fondants are required for this. Also some droplets of yellow and red sugar paste will be useful for certain small decorations. I actually used egg white to stick together all the train components but you can opt for whatever method you like best!


Rumanian version:

   Un cake minunat si foarte delicios pentru doi fratiori de 3 anisori Jack si Jodie. Este un vanilla sponge cake  cu frisca si gem de caise. O combinatie foarte fina, mai ales pentru copii .. 🙂 pentru a vedea reteta de la sponge cake o sa va atases link-ul la reteta  pentru ca voi folosii aceste tort doar pentru a va arata cum am facut ornamentele din fondant si in mod special trenuletul thomas. Cu 5-6 zile inainte de a finaliza tortul am facut decoratiile, adica floricelele, un bradut care e foarte simplu, stelute de mai multe marimi puse una peste alta, citeva pietre si minunatul Thomas..:) Trebuie sa va marturisesc ca e pentru prima oara cind il fac si am avut ceva emotii, insa cred eu ca rezultatul final a fot unul foarte bun….

Asadar .. inconjurata de trenulete, poze, reviste cu thomas,,imagini de pe net..etc mi-am pus imaginatia la treaba si am pornit la treaba…

Aveti nevoie de fondant albastru, rosu, negru,alb si gri plus citeva picaturi de pasta de zahar galbena si rosie pentru citeva mici decoratii. Eu am folosit albus de ou pentru a lipii toate componentele trenuletului…
