Thomas the Tank Engine cupcake train
Thomas the Tank Engine cupcake train
My son's 3rd birthday party was held at Chick-fil-a on Saturday. A great time was had by all. Lots of stangers stopped me to ask about the cupcake train. I had to tell them I saw it on Flickr! This is my take on the idea. It was so easy to make. If you can stack legos, you can make this train. It cost about $35 not including Thomas, as we already had him on hand. It took longer to cut and glue the tracks on the green display board than it did to assemble the train. It was well worth it. My son loved it, and that is what it is all about. :) Update: These Thomas cupcake train images receive alot of traffic here on flickr. So here are the instructions for those people wanting to make this easy, but well loved birthday surprise. 1. Buy cupcakes at a local discount story in your choice of colors. -$12 2. Use small candy bits (reese's peanut butter cups, hershey kisses, gummy worms, m&m's) to decorate the top of each cupcake -$8 3. Use a green project display board and black construction paper (bought at Wal-mart) to make black tracks on green grass for the train to run on. -$3-5 Cut the black construction paper into strips and glue onto the green display board in the pattern of railroad tracks. 4. To make one "troublesome truck" - place 2 vanilla sandwich cookies side by side. Put a dab of cake frosting (any color or kind) on top of each to act as glue. Lay a graham cracker plank on top. Balance two cupcakes(with a dab of frosting on bottom of each cupcake) on top of the graham crackers. Use chocolate sandwich cookies for the wheels. Attach them with a dab of chocolate frosting. Repeat step four as needed to create a train for Thomas to pull. -$6-10 5. I used individual candle letters to spell out my son's name. -$5 6. Thomas is actually a whistle that we bought at "A Day out with Thomas" event. It can be purchased on Amazon.com for about $9 + shipping. It is the Thomas and Friends Realistic Sounding Train Whistle. 7. Enjoy your child's delight.
