My kiddos birthdays are close so this year I decided to make them each a cake on their actual birthday and then do cupcakes for the joint party they are having this month. I am no cake whiz but I do like baking. Anyway my 4 yo wanted Thomas the train. After looking at various overpriced cake pans and complicated cut up cake instructions I decided to try a simple solution.
After baking a round cake and decorating with some festive icing I placed a Thomas train on top. It was actually less expensive then the Thomas cake topper at our local party store and will get plenty of play value when the cake is long gone.
My 8 year old wanted Wall-e for his cake. Once again the cake pan seemed pricey for a one time cake and the cut ups were complex. However, the wall-e toy that J got for Christmas is way too big to put on a cake, and all the local stores were sold out of smaller Wall-E’s. So I needed something different. I found a blog full of Wall-e coloring pages and printed out a cute one of Wall-e and Eve. I colored them and then cut out and laminated the characters.
