Cutest Cat Cake (and Friday links)


How cute is this cake?! Molly Yeh (of My Name is Yeh) made it using Betty Crocker cake mix, some coconut shreds, some marzipan, a little food coloring, and a touch of spaghetti. So simple and sweet!

Which reminds me… Hudson’s third birthday is right around the corner. Better get cracking on that. Any favorite ideas for a third birthday?

Have a great weekend!

In the meantime, some items worth a second look… 

Sweet summer nostalgia: photos of Coney Island—which LIFE calls “America’s original playground”—in the 1940s. (We rode our bikes there from Manhattan once!)

Learn the state flowers from this very handy tea towel. (Found via The Southern Hostess.)

Poetry—from a father’s perspective—on infertility and parenthood.

Compliment boxes: a craft project that builds confidence. Love this idea.

National Picnic Week just passed in the UK— in belated celebration, here’s a round-up of memorable picnic-related movie scenes.

Notebook wallpaper. (And 21 other sweet wallpaper options for kids!)

For road-tripping adventurers, tents that mount to the tops of cars. Turn even your sedan into a camper-van!

Fun cupcake toppers for pint-sized fans of the World Cup. (These would be great on any sort of snack—watermelon slices, cheese cubes, little sandwiches.)

Differences in the vocabularies of men and women.

This Brazilian cheese bread looks, sounds, and must taste amazing. I haven’t had any since Cafe Colonial closed (any NYers remember that place in Nolita? RIP.)

P.S. Frosting for one; Celebrating a half-birthday with a half-cake; and Desserts for a Superhero party.
