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.


Sprinkled with cookie crumbs.


And adorned with candy.


And gum.

Hey that almost rhymes… kinda… maybe… sorta

Mater Cupcakes

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