  1. OMG, I received mine this morning and as the narrator in Thomas would say: “I was delighted!”. As usual in Vera’s work, there’s perfectioninsm in every detail and careful explanations for a gorgeous result. I just wish mine will look like Vera’s… can’t wait to try (neither can my son!) Thank you once more Vera for sharing so much time and work. I totally recommend it to anyone looking to make professional cakes in your home, non-professional kitchen.

  2. oh that looks way better than the ones I used to try and make, LOL. Great work!

  24. hi vera- does your tutorial give the recipe for the fondant or flowerpaste or whatever paste you used to make the pieces of this cake with?

  25. Sadia, I use store-bought gumpaste (Swiss Albert Uster’s) for making figures and flowers. It dries quickly, yet it gives you enough time to model a piece, and it dries hard. I believe,they ship worldwide. You can turn a store-bought fondant (home-made doesn’t work here, it stays somewhat soft) into a modeling paste by kneading in a little bit of tylose powder into the fondant. The exact quantity of the tylose depends on the brand of fondant since the texture varies between brands. For a example, Albert Uster’s fondant is too soft and doesn’t work at all. Wilton’s is too stiff and requires less tylose, a tiny bit too much and it will turn into a stiff and crack-prone paste. SatinIce is, probably, the best suited for turning it into a gum paste; I usually add 1/2 tsp tylose for 250g of fondant. In the end it all comes to a personal preference, you, probably, should try different brands of ready-made gum paste or fondant+tylose combos and see for yourself. Hope it helps.

  26. Can I buy this tutorial in the uk? It looks very interesting. Can I use ready made modelling paste ? Instead of fondant & tylose ? how far in advance do you make the topper and rest of decorations. Do you freeze cake before using it ?

  27. Gail, it doesn’t matter where you live, I will send you the tutorial by email.

    Yes, you can use ready-made modelling paste. That’s what I use most of the time.

    You can make the topper well in advance (up to several weeks). Keep it in a cardboard box at room temperature, out of the daylight, to prevent color fading.

    I never freeze cakes, unless I have to sculpt the cake, then I freeze it briefly.

  28. I’m interested in purchasing your tutorial but I tend to worry about copyright infringement. By purchasing your tutorial do I also get copyright permission to use the Thomas the Tank Engine image?

  29. Alaskan, if you are planning to mass produce this, I would suggest to seek a legal advice on the matter according to laws of your country.

  30. Hi, do I need to add the tylose to my wilton fondant to make this or can I just use the fondant as is?

  31. I also would need the tutorial as soon as I could get it, will it be very quick?

  32. Hi Vera,
    I just made the payment for the tutorial. Can you please send it asap? I’m planing to use Satin Ice. Can I use Satin Ice rolled fondant for this?

  33. Is this tutorial for just the Thomas face or does this include cake assembly?

  34. Jacqueline, thank you for your interest. This tutorial is about how to create a Thomas the Tank Engine figurine that is to be placed on top of a cake. Here is an example: In other words, the cake is not in the tutorial.

  35. Oh wow I didn’t realize it would take 12 hours to get in :( I need it now… I assumed it would be downloadable immediately. Hope I get it before 12 hrs or it was an unnecessary purchase….
