Since we went with chocolate, per the boy’s request, and since I wasn’t willing to whip up a real icing,** the decoration is not particularly visible. But there was enough blue on the engine to elicit a joyful cry of “a Thomas cake.” And he happily devoured an entire car that night and had a couple more over the next few days.***
Turns out that he is also particularly fond of gummy Life-Savers. That’s my boy!

**It’s milk and confectioner’s sugar with food coloring. I had already relented and allowed the cake to be made from a non-organic mix, so I wasn’t willing to add chemical-filled icing.
***Special bonus, Trillian picked up an ice cream cake for the actual day of his birthday. Between his two birthday celebrations and Easter treats, he has been sugared up non-stop!
