Paul introduces us to his colourful Little Train Conductor Cake, which we are sure you'll agree is great fun! Not only does it look great, but it tastes yummy too, with chocolate sponge cake, covered in chocolate ganache. Paul shows us brilliant ways of using edible paper, rice paper and cutters to make quick and easy edible decorations.
This cake is perfect for birthdays and could be adapted in a myriad of ways to suit any occasion. The design incorporates different skills and techniques such as simple airbrush work, creating miniature edible decorations, simple modelling and more. It's a playful cake, that's ideal for beginners, but has bags of potential for experienced cake makers to develop too.

We'd love to see your take on the Little Train Conductor  - please share your snaps with us on our Facebook Page!
