Amazing Cat Themed Animated Zoetrope Cake

February 28, 2018

This is a video of Gâteau Gato, a cat themed spinning zoetrope cake created by artist and pastry chef Alexandre Dubosc. It features a bunch of animated cat imagery as it spins including Felix the Cat walking, a Japanese good luck Maneki-neko cat waving, and the cat bus from My Neighbor Totoro. It's so cute and creative you'd almost feel bad about eating it. "You literally just took a giant scoop with your hand." Hey *seductively licking fondant from between fingers* I said almost.

Keep going for the full video, which is being played in real-time.

Thanks to Christina C, who agrees animated cakes are cool, but my patent-pending indoor fireworks display is going to be the real next big thing at weddings.

    Yes, yes, that's very nice, but the important question must be asked: Can you **** it?

    Cool idea, just be careful not to spin it too fast?

    And doesn't the 'persistence of vision'-effect require a shutter of some sort, so seeing this spinning in person wouldn't look nearly as cool as seeing it on screen?

    Damnit... you just gave me an idea. We make a cake that needs to rest on top of a 30,000 rpm router.

    this reminds me that i used to have a felix the cat zoetrope that i got from a kid's meal back in the day
