Before I explain the cake. I want to tell you the story behind this cake. A 2year old little boy was recently diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). A friend of the family, was looking for someone to make a special cake to brighten the little boy's day. She said he loves cake and loves Mater. On Christmas Eve (2012) he received his special cake.
I donated my time and materials to make the cake. It took me about 8 hours to make Mater. Mater is a carved cake (4 layers) with gumpaste accents. The tires and hat are RK treats covered in fondant. This was my 3rd time using an airbrush. I luv my airbrush. The snow is piped icing covered with edible sugar and confectioners sugar. I even put an LED light on the back which you can see in the side view picture.
