Sodor Sheet Cake

This super-easy dessert starts with a sheet cake. Pipe on some icing tracks, add your kid's favorite train, and you're done! (Via Living Well Mom)

Cupcake Cake

Frost cupcakes in a single layer with blue and green frosting to set the scene before adding tracks, a train, and birthday wishes.

"All Aboard" Cake

With chocolate wafer candies for the tracks and red taffy candy for the rails, all this easy DIY cake needs is a printable topper. Get all the how-to's and more tips for planning a splendid birthday with our Thomas & Friends DIY Birthday Party!

Tiny Tunnel

A mini-layer cake on top of a sheet cake serves as a tunnel for an emerging engine. Cookie tracks and icing grass, stones, and flowers complete the effect.

Angel Food Cake Tunnel

A sheet cake and half of an angle-food cake make the tunnel (or a bridge!) for this cake. Add candy and frosting tracks for an easy finish. 

Number Cake

Use a number pan (or get creative with an angel food pan) to create this cake before adding a toy train on top of a cookie-and-frosting track. (Via Blue i Style)

Tunnel Cake

The trick to this tunnel cake? The second layer is cut in half and stacked on one side to create a tunnel. Green and blue icing add landscape decor before Thomas completes the look.
