Here's a way to greet the New Year: Proclaim the date on kids' pancakes -- a fun way to start the day. Familiar number magnets make it easy. Place clean magnets on top of silver-dollar pancakes; dust with confectioners' sugar, using a mesh sieve, then carefully lift magnets. Use the same idea for other occasions: Spell out a message with letters, or top a stack of flapjacks with a number to mark a birthday.
