Train Cake Ideas

Make a train using a firm (pound cake type) 9x13 cake cut up into 9 even rectangles.  Each piece will be one car of the train.  Take two for the engine.  On one, cut a triangle shape on the narrow end, to resemble a cow catcher.  Place 1/2 of the other piece on the top near one edge, secured with frosting.  Use a round snack cake like a ho ho or Twinkie for the boiler, set this in front of the top cake. Frost each piece with your chosen colors.  Decorate with mini cookies for wheels, candies for decorations, etc.
