Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

I am so excited to get back in the kitchen!!! It won't be for a couple weeks but I am just excited to be in the planning stages!!!!  Our Grandson is turning 2 and Gramma is baking him a very special cake... It will be Mickey Mouse Choo Choo Express.  The cake itself is going to be a Topsy Turvy Cake to look like Mistletoe Mountain and the Mickey Mouse Choo Choo train will either be going up the mountain or around the base... have not decided yet.  I cheated and bought the Mickey Mouse figures... Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, Donald, Goofy & Pluto.  That way he can play with them after the birthday too.  For his birthday I got him all kinds of fun Mickey Mouse stuff.  Can't wait to get going on it!!!  I have not baked since November.  I feel like a kid in a candy store!!!

Can't wait to see a picture of this cake, sounds great...glad you will be back to baking/decorating, bet your Grandson will also be very happy that you are back to decorating, when he sees the cake you made for him.
Way to go Jeri, I am sure grandma and grandson will have a great time.
Can't wait to see it Jeri! Glad your your feeling better too! :)
I dont' know who will be more excited... me or our 2 year old grandson... either way.. we will have a fun party! 

Hi Jeri,

 

I havent been here for so long... now Im back.

Anyway, Im feeling great right now... just finished a cake like the one you're planning.

Cake left an hour ago.

Its a Thomas the train and friends cake. A two tier topsy turvy altho the top tier could do with a greater slant. But the best part is we managed to bore a tunnel through and got a 'real' tunnel for Thomas. It was a challenge but we did it.  Customer bought the toys as she wanted the birthday boy to be able with them later. I will post the pictures on my blog soon . dchampsoven@blogspot.com.  Please do pay a visit and I welcome feedback.. please be honest... there's always room for improvement.

Have fun Jeri.... post yours when its done.

I am making a Mickey cake for my 2 year old Godson in Feb.  It is going to be 2 teirs, 12" round with cut out (different colors and sizes) Mickey heads all over the bottom, then a 6" square covered in red with the big buttons to look like his shorts and on top of that a pair of Mouse ears like the ones I got him from Disney World when we went for New Years.  I am going to write his name on them, like they were embroded at the park and put a fondant 2 on top of the ears.  I hope it comes out how I want it to.

 

I am excited about this cake too.... I didn't get to make his first birthday cake, but I plan to make the rest!!! 

How funny we both have Grandsons with their 2 year birthday in Feb!!!   I have totally cheated on this entire cake but he is going to love it.   I have purchased all the decorations... something I never do but they are really into snowmobiling and I bought these 2 little snowmobiles that I am going to put onto Mistletoe Mountain and goofy and pluto will be on the snowmobiles.... and the train will go around the bottom of the cake with the rest of the Disney figures in the train cars.... He's going to go bananas!!!  He already has his "own" snowmobile... a real one... just is not big enough to ride it yet.
