Cake Boss Buddy Valastro has mastered another towering dessert of truly epic proportion. The chef, who stars in the hit reality TV series on TLC, has created a massive 2,000-pound cake in the shape of Bumblebee — a character from the highly anticipated Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon film. And not only did he create Bumblebee but also the yellow Chevrolet Camaro that he transforms into!

The masterpiece took approximately four days to make and was recently displayed in NYC.

The cake consists of vanilla pound cake with butter-cream frosting and Rice Krispies treats were used to bind the cake at critical flex points.

"This was the hardest caked I've ever done, but one I'm the most proud of," Buddy shared. "We had to build it outside the bakery and had a special effects guy help us with some hydraulics and stuff."


The third installment of the popular Transformers franchise, Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, directed by Michael Bay and starring Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and John Turturro, debuts on June 29.
