Live music playing birthday cake with special light effects.

The purpose of this project was to create a personal birthday gift. And while doing so have some fun with electronics, software and 3D printing!

The strawberry & whipped cream cake has 4 operation modes, set by rotating the strawberry encoder.

The default mode only has led-effects and no sound. Then you have the birthday mode, in which the cake plays happy birthday until you never want to celebrate a birthday again. It also has a “shuffle” mode. Here it plays random songs. And finally there is a surprise mode in which the lights are off and no music plays, if it becomes light it suddenly plays a song.”
