YouTube video maker Russell Munro recently designed a transforming robot cake for his son's birthday. While many parents try to make their child's birthday special, this moving robot creation takes the traditional birthday cake to a whole new level.

Munro's cake is designed to resemble the Transformer Optimus Prime. The cake is completely automated and transforms from a truck into a standing robot in the blink of an eye. The cake contains five major components, each of which was created using a 3D printer. The thighs and the chest are the only moving parts, while the legs remain in place to support the weight of the cake.

The transforming robot cake demonstrates that there is no limit to what someone can do with a 3D printer.
