Yesterday I baked some cake trains with the 5 year old! It was only a cake mix as the scales are currently broken and in need of a replacement. But we still had fun anyhow. I picked up the ‘Jane Asher’ cake mixture from Poundland with some chocolate frosting that only equalled to £2 so fairly cheap and very tasty.

First of all the 5 year old greased his silicone train moulds and set them to one side. I made sure that we had all the ingredients handy to one side already to make life a lot simpler. He then poured the chocolate sponge mix into a large mixing bowl and cracked in two eggs. Next he poured in some milk in a measuring jug (practising his maths – bonus!) and poured it in with the sponge mix and eggs, then whisked together until smooth – easy!

Once he had mixed everything up we added a tablespoon of oil and stirred. I then poured the mixture into a measuring jug for him to pour into his silicone cake mould shaped as trains! We popped them in the oven and baked in 25 minutes.

Once the cakes cooled, we then spread on some chocolate frosting and decorated them with smarties and marshmallows!
