Having your parents throw an awesome Transformers-themed party for your sixth birthday is one thing. But having your dad make a talking Optimus Prime cake that actually transforms? That’s a birthday you’re never, ever going to forget.

The lucky lad in this case is the son of YouTuber Russell Munro who used a 3D printer to construct the transforming base for this cake. All of the baked and frosted parts then help to cover up the motors and other mechanisms that allow this wonderful creation to transform. Here’s video of the transforming mechanism being assembled, pre-cake:
