How to Make a Cake Inside of an Orange

Make a Cake Inside an Orange

You can cook up as few or as many cakes as you please. And instead of cooking your tiny cake in the oven, you cook it on a charcoal grill or over a campfire! What a fun winter firepit activity to do with your kids! Thanks, Makezine, for sharing this video from NorthSurvival.

A Birthday Crown that Grows With Your Little Prince or Princess

We’ve called my son The Little Prince since he was born, and I love the idea of a birthday crown that he can wear year after year. Kuka & Bubu designed this super simple felt crown with interchangeable numbers that would be simple to customize for your own kid’s tastes. The back of the crown ties with ribbon, so you can resize it easily, and the numbers attach with Velcro. I think that the numbers from previous years would make super sweet keepsakes, too!
