Mischer'traxler's automatic cake decorator uses a rotating platform to draw a flowery, spirograph-like design on its cakes. As a final touch, the mechanical arm drops sugar-pearls across the cake's surface. Doesn't beat the creativity and skill of human cake decorators, though.
The automatic cake decorator is part of an exhibit entitled "til you stop - how much is enough." You determine how decorated the cake gets by telling the machine when to stop. More icing please! (as long as it's of the cream cheese variety) [mischer'traxler via Design Boom]
