Thomas the Tank Engine Cake

Here is the cake I made for a friend's son. He LOVES Thomas! I didn't have a large enough cake pan so supplemented with some cupcakes.

Below is a picture of the cake before I added the colors. I did a black outline is royal icing to make sure that the detailed drawing wouldn't melt or run all over. It didn't need to be an exact replica of Thomas but I wanted it recognizable, at least.
Below is a picture of Thomas colored in with buttercream. I wasn't sure what to do for the black parts at first because no one wants a mouthful of black frosting. These chocolate sprinkles or jimmies (as we called them in Massachusetts) worked pretty well, I think.
