Thomas the Train Cake for Caleb

Indeed, every cake tells a story. We will never forget this order. 

Caleb's mom messaged me while we were on holiday 
in Hong Kong in Nov 2014. 
The most memorable thing is that the order was confirmed 
on our Baking Bees 3rd Anniversary on 29th Nov 2014! :)

Caleb's birthday falls on Christmas Day, so it seems that it is difficult to get bakers to commit to an order on a major holiday. 
I'm a mom of 4, I can understand how important it is to get 
that perfect cake for your child!

We used light blue fondant to cover the cake, made train tracks out of fondant and made Caleb's name in colourful letters. 
Thomas & Friends logo is printed on edible icing sheet. We even loaned the Thomas toy used to decorate the cake.

As the order was confirmed on our anniversary, we decided to celebrate by giving a 10% discount on the cake. 
Instead of telling Caleb's mom up front, we gave her a surprise by packing the refund money into an ang pow (lucky red packet) and passed it to her when she returned the Thomas toy.

A handwritten note accompanied the cash refund.

Happy 3rd birthday, Caleb!
