The investigation of Christian's birthday present by Inspector Mercy.

Arson! Arson! Somebody set Christian's cake afire.

The Number 1 job of putting the fire out in Thomas's cab.

The appetite of Conrad Martin becomes public.

That cake is SO amazing!! I love it! Who, may I ask was the artist behind it, and how difficult is it to construct?? My nephew loves Thomas... would be fun to make him one... (or not:{ )

I like the way you ask that: "Would it be fun... or not?" Hard question.

The decorating actually went pretty fast on this one - it had to; I had a piano student coming. :) The tough part is that it uses a specially shaped pan. (I would be glad to let you borrow it.) Shaped pans can be messy I found. At least when it was done baking, there was still more cake in the pan than there was on the bottom of the oven. Also, thankfully the burnt, smoky smell didn't last more than a day. ;-)
