Having a train party is among the most popular party ideas on our blog right now. Not much a surprise – little boys love trains. {My own three year old son is obsessed with Thomas the Tank Engine) And, I have to say, this wild west train robbery birthday party is among the top 5 parties I have ever featured.

Every now and then I get a boy party that comes into my mailbox and I truly wish I had planned it. This is one of them. For a while now, I’ve been envisioning a vintage train party that brought a train set to life with desserts. Nicole from Million Dollar $mile Celebrations did it, but with this Wild West Cowboy Train Robbery themed birthday party, she did it much better than I ever could. Check out the work of Nicole and her fabulous vendors. I seriously love every single detal. She provides tons of details about the party at the end of the post.

The Dessert TableCasey’s Confections recreated a Wild West town and ranch with intricately decorated cookie buildings, cattle and horses. But, she didn’t stop there. Casey baked up the Boot Hill brownie bites, a tee-pee village, and Drake’s water tower cake. Brittany from Edible Details topped cupcakes baked at Sugar Daddy’s Cupcakes with the most tiny and terrific fondant details. Don’t you just want to press that dynamite box on the bridge or sit and listen to cowboy song in the Outlaw Camp?? Watch out the tiny little rattlesnake might be adorably dainty, but he’s deadly delicious. And check out the mini boots set on the graves at Boot Hill. Cake Pop My Heart created money bag cake pops and realistic haystack cake treats. Give me all your cake pops and no one gets hurt!!! The Marshmallow Studio created barrel and Saguaro cacti (that’s plural cactus for you non-dessert dwellers) that we placed into tiny terracotta vases. We added some bubblegum gold, rock candy diamonds, and chewy coal candies straight from the store to the mining scene on the table. Grandma Dianne even created some edible tumbleweeds with butterscotch and wonton noodles. We gathered everything from a wagon wheel, some flagstone, and cans of baked beans to give the table some unique levels. Oh yeah, there was a train that hauled full-speed around the town, attempting to deliver the gold before the outlaws rode up and said, “Reach for the Sky”!
