Subject: Train Cake? More like train wreck!
One of my best friends told me that she had always wanted to get a train cake for her birthday when she was younger, but she never had. I thought it’d be great if I could make her dream come true still, so when her birthday rolled around, I recruited my boyfriend to help me make this Betty Crocker train cake recipe that I found.
Firstly, we accidentally got a “light and airy” cake mix, which made frosting and cutting it without it falling apart a big problem! Also, we were using a college dorm kitchen, so we didn’t have much to work with. We ended up just throwing frosting on and sticking the parts together that had fallen apart and gingerly tried to get them to balance on the pan wall (a free-standing train was a vision of the past).
It was a lot of fun, at least!
