For those who are not aware, Big Hero 6 is an animated comedy action movie released in 2014 and inspired from Marvel Comic’s superhero team of the same name. It got commercial success as well as good reviews from critics.

Tadashi (Hiro's elder brother) had programmed Baymax to be a huggable, caring health companion. Hiro resists his charms at first but soon melts. One of the most adorable scenes in Big Hero 6 is when they hug each other. "I Love Cakes by Sheila" has recreated this scene on a cake for her daughter's 9th birthday.

From the simple huggable robot, Hiro transforms Baymax into one of the Big Hero 6 superhero team with some dexterous reprogramming. Hiro also added some new physical entities to Baymax like a rocket fist and rocket thrusters that allowed him to fly. The chocolate cake here made by Onigiri Sweets shows Baymax entering his superhero mode with the help of Hiro who is busy preparing his armor.

Initially, Baymax’s armour was of a dull green colour, which enabled him to execute karate techniques downloaded into him by Hiro with ease. Once he’s transformed into a superhero, the attire changes to a more sophisticated red and purple, which enables him the added advantage of flight. This new armour is much more flexible and durable, appealing more to the eye. In this particular birthday cake, we see Baymax in his new avatar. The cake also includes a smaller version of the simple and huggable "marshmallow like" Baymax at the side.

6. Baymax and Hiro Chocolate Mousse Birthday Cake
