This Transforming Optimus Prime Cake Would Make Paul Hollywood Proud

Having your parents throw an amazing Transformers-themed party for your sixth birthday is one thing. But having your dad make a talking Optimus Prime cake that actually transforms? That’s a birthday you’re never, ever going to forget.

The lucky lad in this case is the son of YouTuber Russell Munro who used a 3D printer to construct the transforming base for this cake. All of the baked and icing-covered parts then help to cover up the motors and other mechanisms that allow this wonderful creation to transform. Here’s video of the transforming mechanism being assembled, pre-cake:
