This Cake Doesn’t Just Sit There Looking Pretty. When It Starts Moving It’s The Most Unexpected Surprise!

All I can say is WOW!  What you are about to see is nothing short of amazing, both to watch and listen to.  It appears to be an animated cake with a crazy amount of action.  In fact, this visually awesome footage is not the result of animation.

What makes this appear to be moving is a device called Zoetropes.  They were used before actual animation came about in film making.  What you are watching in this footage is called a ‘zoetrope cake’.  A Zoetrope is made of a cylinder with slits cut into the sides.

Inside the cylinder are drawings that appear to move when the cylinder is spun. Much like flip books, that made it seem like you were seeing movement, the zoetrope drawings take on the animated feature.  When spun rapidly, it results in the little film you are about to enjoy.

Alexandre Dubosc has created this amazing imagery, with zoetrope cakes being his artistic focus.  His work is wildly imaginative and, I have to say, has got my sweet tooth going. Let us know what you think of this tasty piece of magical art!
