Disney was the first ever company that introduced the projection mapped cake. They patented the idea way back June 2009 – US Patent 8223196, which involves projector methods and systems for producing interactive food products, such as cakes.
The patented cake display of Disney makes use of a sensor to obtain a 3D model of the cake in real-time. This way, they can incorporate interactive animations.
“For example, the projected image may include a lake located on a surface of a cake, and a computer system running a depth/topology processor module or program may determine when and where a piece is cut out of the cake. In response, the computer system or system controller may render the projected image with the new surface topology to provide a waterfall flowing from the lake into the void or resulting space in the projection surface corresponding to the removed piece of cake to form a pool on the cake pan or recessed cake surface.”
