Mater Cake

I decided to make a Tow Mater cake for Dad for his birthday. Here was my inspiration:

And here's how it turned out:


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.'s not beautiful, but Dad got a good kick out of it anyway.
