Beginner’s soldering kits are a fun way to get used to the nuances of a skill that all makers must possess. While they often end with a badge of honor (quite literally), this particular kit goes a step further by offering some interactivity.
The Electronic Cake Kit features two PCBs bolted together, and 8 LEDs on the top to represent candles. When it’s completed, the lights flicker randomly to mimic flames. When you blow on them, they’ll also go out and stay out longer depending on how well you can snuff out your electronic candles.
The kit comes with everything you need to build the finished product. The seller also provides detailed assembly instructions. The only thing you’ll need to complete the set are a pair of AA batteries.
