New cake machine .gif

Here is an updated version of the digital cake machine from earlier. Enjoy!
Technical details: It's a 1:6 scale design that I'm printing on my Průša i3 printer. The pulleys (gold) are connected by rubber bands, so by turning that crank you can spin the cake whether it's inside or out of the oven. The long handlebars let the user slide the cake in or out. The cams on either side of the cake (the things that look like Darth Vader's helmet) hit the little nubs on the oven doors, forcing them open only when necessary—thus minimizing heat loss.
