Nephews train cake

A couple months ago I got this idea for a train cake. I had been looking at car cakes and train cakes and this is a collection of different ideas I saw out there. I love the way it came together. My house does not have air conditioning at it was extra hot that day. I learned how important a cool room is for frosting. The green kept sliding down the cake.

Do you think this sweet little boy cared? of course not!

I made the "3" train tracks out of fondant then placed his train on top.
The rocks and signs are made out of fondant as well. For the rocks I combined black and white fondant just enough to get that nice marble affect.
