Dad Makes Optimus Prime Cake That Actually Transforms

A 6-year-old boy’s dreams came true when he ambitiously asked his parents for a Transformers birthday cake. But this isn’t just your average Optimus Pastry.

YouTube user Russell Monro and his wife teamed up to make their kid a cake that actually transforms. Using a 3D printer, Monro created a moving platform that holds the cake, which was made by his wife.

The final result brought Optimus Prime to life in moving cake form. (Not to mention the sheer joy on his son’s face.)


If that wasn’t jaw-dropping enough for the 6-year-old and his birthday party guests, his dad even built a speaker into the platform to make Optimus Prime say one of his famous quotes: “At the end of this day, one shall stand, one shall fall!”

Due to the overwhelming attention, Monro wrote on Thursday in his YouTube comments that he would soon write about the process (though it won’t be a tutorial) and maybe even share the file used for 3D printing the platform. Which is great news for all the parents of 6-year-olds who have seen what “that kid’s dad” can do.
