So this past weekend my father in law celebrated his birthday and I wanted to surprise him with a cool birthday cake.
Since he had been in the towing business for years and owned his own towing company I thought I would make him the very popular Tow Mater. I had a lot of fun doing this cake and it was a lot less time consuming than making a fondant cake.
I ended up using two small square pans and then just carved them to look like a tow truck. I used Fugee-O's for the wheels, smarties for the lights, Oreo sippers for the hoist, a Reece cup for the air filter and little Reece peanut butter bars for the front grill and bumper. Oh and I can't forget Chicklets for Mater's teeth.
My father in law loved the cake so it was a success. Next is my husbands birthday....I'll have to get thinking of something that will top a DQ ice cream cake
