Hi all,
My birthday is coming up and my mum is looking at getting a custom made Train cake but im not sure what to have and what details to have put on it.

I am wondering if anyone has any ideas?

Many thanks.

If your birthday is on a weekend a rail replacement bus cake may be more appropriate :lol:

What about your favourite class/loco?

Haha Thanks I've Had an idea about 43161(FGW) and 43303(AXC) Back to back. As they are the 2 HSTs I have Photted the most.

Gotta be an FGW HST I reckon, why not the jubilee power car, as that looks a bit like a cake decoration as it is :P

If you like cake as much as I do, go for a Grand Union freight train. They're about four miles long aren't they?

Why spoil the surprise?

Or do you just want to make sure you don't end up with a Voyager or Pacer or even a Thomas cake?

Indeed—you should go for a train with a more deliciously-coloured livery (CrossCountry's chocolate and pink, perhaps).

Or perhaps the "original" Grand Central livery (aka minus the orange stripe) - pure chocolate.

Or alternatively pure liquorice. Yuk!


I Will don't you worry! :D

I await with anticipation and excitement as to what you will use for a livery of that colour.

I think something in a 'Blood and Custard' Livery would taste the worst!

Nice! Look at all that icing. Whats inside? Please say sponge with jam and buttercream!

Happy Birthday by the way!
