Train Cupcakes

Updated on February 19, 2013

Bake Adorable Train Cupcakes

Train cupcakes are so cute and you can make them with train cupcake pans. Bake up these fun cupcakes for a train themed birthday party, to make a Holiday train cake, or just for a special treat for your kids. The specialty train cupcake pans make individual cupcakes that make up the various cars to the train, instead of making a standard round cupcake. You then line up the cupcake cars to make a full length train. You're little engineer is going to think you're the coolest mom ever when you make him his own cupcake train.

Here you will find train cupcake pans, train cupcake toppers, and images of adorably decorated train cupcakes to give you tons of birthday cupcake ideas.

      Both my husband and son are into trains and while I have made a few train cakes, your cupcake ideas look so much nicer ( and easier). The cupcake wrappers and toppers can make any cupcake special and are great when you're short on time. I just love wrappers & toppers!
