From the editor:

Hi Vikki,

The Thomas Cake was submitted by one of our visitors, but I can answer those questions for you:

To make the boiler, line the bottom and sides of the can with parchment or wax paper and grease really well to prevent sticking. Fill the can to about 2/3 full with batter and bake for around an hour, checking at 50 minutes and every 10-15 minutes after that, until a cake tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

To ice the cake, use a #18 star tip, or similar, and pipe the stars very close together to give a solid color finish.

I hope this helps.

Don't forget to take lots of pictures of your cake and come back here to show it off.

Regards,
Michelle (editor)
