Markham volunteers use 3D printing to make 12-foot Canada Day cake | Toronto Star


Every big birthday needs a cake.

So to celebrate Canada 150, Markham is going all-out: more than 500 volunteers have used 3D printing pens to create a 12-foot-tall Canada-themed delicacy.

The only problem? You can’t eat it.

The cake will be “iced” with plastic beavers, poutine, fishing boats, lighthouses and Mounties, among other Canadian symbols—all made by Markham community members
