Two of my favorite things together in one short film – animation and cake!
A zoetrope is a cylinder with a sequence of pictures on its inner surface which, when viewed through the vertical slits spaced regularly around it while it is spinning, gives the illusion that the pictures are moving. Some modern day zoetropes use strobe lighting instead of the slits to get the same effect. The Ghibli Museum has a wonderful zoetrope populated with characters from their films and Disney also has a Toy Story themed zoetrope at Disneyland Resort.
Another thing I love about the Caketrope film is the combination of the visuals with sound and music to make the cake come alive:
