Thomas the Tank Engine seems to be making a come-back, 2 orders for him in the span of a month!
This was an order through Trademe, Denise wanted a 7″ chocolate cake, and requested to have a specific version of Thomas on the cake.
Unlike the previous few, this was a dense and moist chocolate cake and not a chiffon cake, so it was topped with buttercream.
Aarya’s second order for her 3rd birthday was to be shared at childcare centre with her classmate Sacha who was also celebrating his 3rd birthday.
He wanted Thomas the Tank Engine, she wanted Peppa Pig, so why not do a half-and-half!
Sacha wanted the front-on look of Thomas, while Aarya went for the fairy version of Peppa Pig, and this huge 12-inch chocolate chiffon cake was born! I tried to fit them both on without looking too small, which was almost a squeeze for the divider, but all worked in the end, phew!
