Is this too much cake for a 2-year-old’s birthday???

Tell me, please, is this too much cake for a 2-year-old and 15 other 2-year-olds to appreciate and eat?

It sure was too much for the adults.

We all just stared at it, mouthes agape.

If you notice in the picture, you will see all the little hands gathered around waiting for their piece of this train-cake to eat. It was really cute seeing their expression and watching the parents take a mental note for their kids’ birthdays…

The cake was for our long awaited birthday party for The Happy Boy as he turned 2. His actual birthday was in December but a lot of his classmates and baby group were away or busy so we chose to celebrate in January instead. I’m not sure it matters to him, other than he gets to celebrate his birthday more than once and that’s cool.

In honour of my sons love of trains we chose a Thomas theme – although I do not belive that he has ever actually watched Thomas on TV. My mother-in-law (MIL) made this for him.

The only thing more surprising than the cake was trying to clean it up hours later. I ended up using a piece of the track (licorice) to scrape away all the icing, and other yummies that made that cake what it was.

The cake was good, but very gooey. Pretty to look at, hard to clean up. Harder to burn the calories from…

Excuse me while I eat some celery.

    That’s probably the most amazing cake I’ve ever seen! It looks gorgeous!

    (I’d luv to eat the whole thing by myself 😉
