William Somona has a wonderful, although long, recipe titled ” Vanilla Train Cake”. Easy to find.
This is the mold just before going into the oven. The train cakes are a success and could have been a train wreck. Holy Moly.
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and all the other wonderful stardust I can send your way. What’s on your plate?

Thank you. Many thank you’s and happy wishes for you and your family. The vanilla is super easy. I send for, via Ebay, for Magagascar Vanilla beans. They are added to vodka and allowed to ‘sit’ for 6 months. It’s better quality than store bought and price effective. I refuse to use imitation vanilla. I’m planning on making a new ‘ batch’ maybe with brandy or dark rum. It will take a while but except some when it’s nearly ready. Have a great day.
