Disney's Cars Tow Mater Cake
This is Tow Mater from Disney's Cars in cake form complete with rusty paint work. Everything on this cake is edible apart from the angled piece of crane which is a wooden dowel covered in icing. We used strawberry laces for the cable and fixed them into place with royal icing.
After sculpting the cake and covering it with white sugarpaste I then had to hand paint all the details on, I learned my lesson from the dinosaur cake and made sure I had an assortment of paint brushes so I could cover larger areas quickly, and I'm so glad I did. I thought hand painting would give the best result as he's rather rusty and mottled which is easier to create with painting.
And to finish it all off the board has been covered with royal icing to make it look like he's on the road to Radiator Springs.
