  1. 1

    Frost one of the miniature loaf cakes with red frosting, using the frosting spatula. This cake will serve as the engine of your train and will be placed in the front.

  2. 2

    Take a crispy cereal treat and shape it into a rectangle that is the width of the loaf cake and 2 inches tall. Frost the treat with red frosting and place it on the back end of the engine so that it looks like the cab of the engine.

  3. 3

    Place a miniature ice cream cone on the front section of the engine and fill it with miniature marshmallows so that it looks like the train's smokestack and steam.

  4. 4

    Press two miniature chocolate candies on each side of the engine to serve as the train's wheels. Place a piece of liquorice rope between each set of wheels.

  5. 5

    Frost the other four loaf cakes using the four different colours. These will be the train's cars. Add wheels and liquorice ropes to each train car.

  6. 6

    Place the engine onto the cake platter and then place each car in a line behind it.
