Video: Monrovia's Merengue Bakery Makes R2-D2 Cake

The latest specialty cake from Monrovia's Merengue Bakery is a life-size recreation of R2-D2 from Star Wars.

Trying to top the giant 8-foot cake its bakers built in September, Monrovia's Merengue Bakery has now created a cake built to look like Star Wars robot R2-D2.

The robotic cake stands 3 feet tall, weighs 175 pounds, has a motorized head and produces sound effects. It's made from Chocolate Parisian, Triple Berry and Dulce de Leche cakes as well as Rice Krispy Treats.

Check out the above video to see how this cake was made. Who knew cake baking required a welder!?
