    For those who might remember last year's news article about a full size Bumblebee Camaro cake being done for a cake show in Australia...
    Life Size Bumblebee Cake

    ...well, that same baker is back at it this year, this time with a 9 foot (3 meter) robot mode Bumblebee, which is a lot harder to do when sculpting with soft edible cake, so it isn't as exact as last year's car, but you can still tell that it is Bumblebee.

    On this weekend (April 12 to 14), at the Brisbane Convention Center at Southbank, is the annual international cake show.
    - Dan's creative Cakes (facebook page) -is back again this year, with a Robot mode version of the VW Bumblebee from the 2018 Bumblebee Movie.
    Dan Greensill has been working on this year's Bumblebee since January, and it is all still fully edible (aside from the supporting structure inside)... and if you are at the Cake Show Sunday Afternoon, you can join in with the cutting up and eating of Bumblebee.
    Times and Tickets ($25-35 for a single day) to the event can be found here - https://www.acada.com.au/show-tickets.html

    The result may look a little skinny, but since it is built from soft edible cake, it cant be too big and bulky, as it wouldn't be able to support its own weight standing 3 meters tall (about 9 foot to Americans)... so Dan was able to do a pretty good job at making it still look recognisable as a version of Bumblebee, despite the sculpting limitations.

    Channel 7 news has a segment on youtube at the moment, featuring the cake (which some of the screenshots here are from) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uoo5H8Q6Lgo

    And check out Dan's facebook page (linked above), if you wanted to see some behind-the-scenes work he did on this project from the last 3 months.

    Bumblebee's facial expression says it all.

    Does it look weird? Yeah, but I understand the limitations of the materials.

    Plus it still demands respect for how much effort this must've went through.

    Just when you thought movie "Bumblebee" couldn't look any worse...yikes.

    Some day this character will get his due again. Some day.

    Crumblebee.

    Because it's a miracle this thing isn't falling into crumbs. For cake that is really impressive.
