Thomas the Tank Engine Cake by ginas-cakes Thomas the Tank Engine Cake by ginas-cakes
A bit of a scarry looking Thomas, but believe it or not, his face is hard to do....Debbie Brown loves giving challenges!

Thomas is so hard to make! I followed the tutorial from one of Debbie Browns book, and I still found it really hard :faint:

Exactly! Eyebrowless Thomas: reminds me of my old Take Along. XD

Scary.

The Controller of Obesity does seem a bit plumper than usual...

Yea....this is one hard cake to get right. I made 3 all together, and it didn't get any easier :)

Awesome cake!
My four year old happened to look over my shoulder as I was browsing your page, he now expects ME to make this for his birthday *sigh* I'm doomed!

This cake was an absolute nightmare for me to make at the time. I've made 2 of these and was so thankful when Spiderman was more popular :D

That looks very good!

I'm sorry to admit, when I got a Thomas cake at that age I was upset as it was the wrong shade of blue :P
I'd say you'ld got it right, though!

Thankyou....:aww:
..and yes, the wrong shade of colour can make a really big difference.
It's sometimes hard to colour fondant as well because it turns a bit darker
when it's left for a bit...^^

You're very welcome :-)
It seems blue's a colour that's particularly susceptible to changing..
Well, with this subject, just swear blind he needed a trip to the loco wash if it does turn darker ;-)

Well, it does take a certain type of mind to come up with a silly idea like 'blame weathering...!'

It's not Thomas who looks scary, but the Fat Controller looks evil.

This is a fabulous Thomas & the Fat Controller.....I'm afraid Thomas is no longer my friend....what a nightmare to do....in 42 deg C heat didn't help either.

I will never do him again either....right at the last moment, an hour before delivery, Thomas' face cracked and thank goodness my Husband took it in hand and repaired an extra one I had made as a prototype.....all's well that ends' well I suppose but never again.

going to go wrong last minute...it usually does!

I have so many rejects!!!....the trouble is my teacher is an award winning flower maker....she makes the most perfect flowers...she has about 30 years advance on me. She is wonderful and patient but the penny hasn't quite dropped for me yet....I'll keep persisting though.

:) That's the spirit!....you'll get there in the end, and all of a sudden, you'll have a perfect flower!
I'm looking forward to that time myself :)..... how does she do hers? I use a tip from one of my books to use clingfilm and press balls of fondant.
