Mater Cake

Welp, I just finished the Mater Cake and I'm reporting back like I said I would earlier today. It's not as beautiful as Bakerella's, but I'm happy with it. 

Bakerella's:

Mine:

I tried to follow the ingredient list and instructions as closely as I possibly could. I couldn't find the mini grasshopper cookies, so I just went with full size and cut them down with a paring knife. The cut edges looked kinda bad on the tires so I added splotchy chocolate frosting on the tires to look like mud and that helped. I'm still not very good at spreading the frosting smoothly, but I'm learning. 

So...it's not beautiful, but Dad will get a kick out of it anyway. I'll give it a Level 1 on the GCT Fail Scale

  1. The nice thing about Mater is he is imperfect. Yours looks great!

    It would be much harder to make a lightening McQueen, for instance.

  2. Looks great Marquette! Dad will love it! A tip to help smooth frosting is to dip your knife in hot water and let the hot knife kinda melt the frosting as you smooth it over.

  5. Those are cookies? I thought they were sweet sixteen mini donuts.

  6. I have a request from my nephew for a Mater cake for his Birthday, thanks for the idea! I think I'll use mini Oreo's though as they're easier to find and they look like tires too. Maybe dip them in some melted chocolate chips? I'm not much of a cake decorator, so I'll probably wind up with a pinstrosity! lol
