How to avoid a trainwreck
December 25, 2016
I've never made a cake mold, but while xmas shopping with my husband this train mold caught our eye! My family was blown away when I walked in to our xmas eve family dinner with our decorated choo-choo!
My tips: use the WS vanilla cake train recipe. I tried the easy way with box cake mix which tasted great but was too airy for the trains to turn out right. We ate a big chocolate train wreck with that train! Make sure the well is scooped out best you can. If your train bakes too high it is possible to trim the extra cake from the train bottom. Our son is home from college and jumped in to help decorate the train, of course eating a lot of the candy too. This will be a new holiday tradition for our family. And....I may try another cake mold!
Pros: Adaptable, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again, endless possibilities, fun for the family
