Howdy!

Tow Mater

My name’s Mater. Tow Mater to be exact. I’m kind of a celebrity. You see, I was in this little movie about cars a few years ago. Yeah… that one.

You may have thought I was a little rusty around the edges. Not so. I’m as sweet as they come.

Especially now that I’m in cupcake form.

Crumbs

Sprinkled with cookie crumbs.

Candy

And adorned with candy.

Gum

And gum.

Hey that almost rhymes… kinda… maybe… sorta

Mater Cupcakes

Hi-tail it on over to Disney’s family.go.com website for the instructions to make this cute tow truck cupcake. Get-R-done.

My two year old walked in as I was looking at this and shouted “WOW! Mater! We’ve seen that movie!” I’d say the cup cakes are a hit!

I’m SORRY, Bakerella! I’m giggling uncontrollably…
I just finished reading through my just-arrived copy of Jen Yates’ “Cake Wrecks” book, and this Mater is too close to some of those pictures! I know I will be excoriated by all the other fans of this site, but once you get laughing as hard as I was, EVERYTHING seems funny. (And no, I haven’t had any alcohol.)
I really do love your site.

You can find plain colored M&M’s at those crazy candy stores ( usually in a mall) and also Party City. Good Luck !

Awesome! I really want to do something Futurama-inspired for next week’s premier. Unfortunately, I lack the necessary creative insight when it comes to food. Any ideas?

My mom and I made these for my son’s fourth birthday. They were so cute! We made a few changes: used cake crumbs from the bed of the truck to sprinkle on top instead of crushed cookies and added red M&M’s on the back for tail lights. If we had more time, we were thinking about adding a candy tow in the back. Thanks for showing them on your blog, they were a hit!

These are adorable! My only question is what muffin do you use for the back of the truck? Do you cut off part of the big one or do you use a small one? Thanks to anyone who will help me figure it out!!!
