Man, kids today don’t know how good they have it. Video games are insane, drones are available from Toys”R”Us, and birthday cakes.. well, birthday cakes not only look like Optimus Prime, they transform like Optimus Prime as well.

Behold, a transforming birthday cake a loving father made for his son’s 6th birthday party.

All the more impressive is that the cake construction is sturdy enough as to not fall to pieces when put into motion. The brilliance of the contraption and the stellar baking effort aside, make sure to keep an eye out for the jaw-dropped reactions of the kids at the party.

Curious about how this was all carried out? Well not to worry. The YouTube user who put it together said he’s planning to detail the work he put into it in just a couple days. In the meantime, he did post this video showcasing what the “animated cake platform” looked like before any of the cake had been added in.

All in all, a nifty little contraption and, not surprisingly, the kid seems to be overjoyed.
