This Finned Robot Can Maneuver Over Land and Through Water

200lb. Octopus Cake: Cthulhu Would Approve
This crazy looking 200-pound cake looks like an octopus. While I rarely eat any cakes, this gigantic one made me smile, and mutter a prayer to the almighty Cthulhu! Karen Portaleo from Highland Bakery is behind this mammoth cephalopod.
