I don't think society could ever thank Bakerella enough for inventing cake pops. And that's not to mention all of the other lovely and inspiring baked goods Bakerella shares on her website. These kidney-shaped cake pops were inspired by her recent kidney transplant. We're so glad to hear it went well, Bakerella! (And the props to the talented toy makers I Heart Guts for their cute kidney plushie which Bakerella used for the design.)
What would make any birthday cake experience even more fun? Digging for dinosaurs while you eat it! Instructables member mikeasaurus (of course) came up with this awesome idea and shares step-by-step instructions.
It's, of course, not enough that Glico makes the best Japanese sweets and snacks around. (Pocky! Pretz! Glico ice cream!) They also have toys which let you make your own adorable bunny and bear themed Glico "ice cream" cones. It's not really ice cream in this case but still some sorta delicious looking something.
If you're looking for a fun baking activity to do with kids, these homemade goldfish crackers from Miss Anthropist's Kitchen look so adorable and fun. And best of all, they look easy too! She even made her own goldfish shaped cookie cutter but cutting a strip from a soda can and shaping it. Check out her whole tutorial and recipe.
Sarah Vowell, non-fiction author extraordinaire and the owner of what is possibly the most adorable speaking voice on the planet, has a new book out on the history of Hawaii. And how has she decided to promote this book? By creating a fun video that explains the history of something called Hawaiian "plate lunches" told entirely in, yup, plate lunches. Fascinating, adorable and thoroughly entertaining.
