Here's a 2,000-Pound Cake With Its Own Hydraulic System

New, 1 comment

There are cool novelty cakes, and then there's this 2,000-pound cake that depicts a Chevrolet Camaro, both as an actual vehicle and as Bumblebee the Autobot from Transformers. Cake Boss's Buddy Valastro concocted this towering cake to promote both the Camaro and the Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon movie.

The cake, which Valastro said was the biggest challenge of an already fairly intense career, is made from vanilla pound cake and buttercream frosting. Well, except for the special hydraulic system that propels Bumblebee's wings up and down. Oh, and the glowing eyes and fireworks. Here's the video.
