Thomas-The train cake

I decided to make Aarav (my son) birthday cake.He turned 2 on Aug 12th.Yeah.. yeah .. he is a terrible 2.. I am not a wilton product but the online tutorials gave me confidence to make the cake.I made three layered neopolitan cake with Swiss meringue icing and praline filling. The cakes were ok. i slightly over baked the cake and it became dry. Otherwise the cake was good I think i did decent job for first timer.I made the train with fondant.This is the first time i am using fondant.This was the mammas gift to the little one.
