For my baby's first birthday today, I tried out my new Nordic Ware Train Cake Pan.
I was impressed that the detailed little cakes released from the pan so easily. Phew! I decorated this cake super fast, before rushing to get the kids off the bus and heading off to piano lessons.
My little buddy boy liked his train cake...
...and the little cupcake-sized cars were perfect for him to cram two-handed into his mouth all at once!
For a larger party, I think it would be fun to make a loooonnng train cake. It could wind all over the place if you really went crazy. You could even pipe the names of individual guests on each train car. The train cars are about the size of a large muffin, so each little cake is just the right size for one party guest! Also, I'm thinking about a Christmas train cake, a Spooky train cake... How about a Love Train cake?!
