This cake I did 3 years ago for my son’s 5th birthday. He not only loved Cars the movie but also the Cars Toon short film series called Mater’s Tall Tales which always featured Mater’s shack at the beginning of the shorts. So for his cake, I wanted to incorporate Mater’s shack front and foremost and then decided to do the other monuments of Radiator Springs around the bottom tier as well. So you will see the cactus patch he crashed into, Cadillac Range as well as the stone monument at the centre of Willie’s Butte. Can you tell I’ve watched this movie hundreds of times?
I posted this to another site when I first made it and have seen other cakes since with Mater’s shack in the front, so I’m guessing the shack is as iconic of Radiator Springs to everyone else as it was to my son. I myself have been asked to recreate it a number of times with minor changes but they always want the shack. Hope you like it! TFL.
