Youtube user atomikqbert posted this video of Aaron Copland’s, “Going Up For Seconds,” a wedding cake-shaped zoetrope animation (although, I think this may technically be a zoopraxiscope?).

For this zoetrope, animation is captured using a camera with progressive scan. I wanted to play up the tiered cake shape of the zoetrope, so I made it look like an actual cake

Seems like a pretty good idea for an actual wedding cake, as long as the decorations manage to keep from flying off…
