According to YouTuber russellmunro, his son asked for a Transformers cake for his sixth birthday. "I decided to up the ante," says dad. "My wife did the actual cake," he adds, meaning that mom must be pretty awesome, too. It's so cool we wonder if the kids felt bad cutting in and eating it. Probably not.
A related video by the same user, which you can see below, shows how the transforming base actually functions, and it's pretty darn clever. The whole contraption sits on a piece of diamond-plate, and every motor, wire and linkage is cleverly hidden under a layer of sweet frosting. That means there wasn't any hint of what was in store when the lone switch was pressed, making for the perfect conditions to get such awesome reactions from the partygoers. Well done, dad.
