Okay, okay……. a few people have asked me to post a few photos of my sons 3rd Birthday cake…. “Tow Mater” from the Disney/Pixar film “Cars”. I’ve also decided to post this as part of the blogger EnglishMum’s Big Bake Off So here it is……
When I asked him what he would like his Birthday Cake to look like, he said he wanted it to be “Doctor Mater” from the “Cars” Toons – he had just been watching “Rescue Squad Mater” though, so I asked him again the next day, and being fickle as nearly 3 year olds can be, he had changed his mind – “Tow Mater”. Before he changed his mind again, I worked out what I would need in terms of icing and food paint to turn his request into reality, and ordered it pronto!
This is what he ended up with for his birthday cake…..
The cables used in the tow arm are made from twisted strawberry laces, painted with melted milk chocolate.
Everything is edible in this cake (a Madeira cake with chocolate buttercream and raspberry jam – his choice, covered with chocolate flavour regalice and milk chocolate cocoform) – except for the wooden skewers used to make the tow arm and towing frame, and the toothpicks holding the wing mirrors on.
I even gave him his trademark buck teeth!
Small boy said “Wow” when he came down for breakfast on the day of his birthday party….
