I just had a customer call and request a cake for her son. She wants it to be decorated with the character Maynard the truck guy from the movie Cars.

Any suggestions as I have never seen the movie. But I have seen the actual car cake pan but never anything with Maynard. Dont even know if I am spelling it correctly.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Go to a store and look for the toys, they have some that are a little bigger than hot wheels cars. That should give you an idea of what you're looking at colorwise. Then find a color book and locate the character and make a FBCT or chocolate transfer.
If she wants more characters than just the one suggest having her buy the toys and make a theme cake to place them on. That's what I'm planning for my son, they have the toy to play with latter.

I believe someone here did an awesome Mater cake.

I just did a search for "Mater."

Here are the results: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=coppermine&file=thumbnails&meta=search&type=full&search=mater

For some reason, other stuff came up too, but you'll see some great ideas.
