Shaquille O'Neal makes a move from the court to the kitchen in a new video that shows the basketball star whipping up some holiday treats in a classic Easy Bake Oven.

Watching one of the world’s tallest men hunched over the tiny device may elicit some laughs but the seven-foot-tall pro takes his cooking pretty seriously. He whips up a bread pudding—one of his “favorite recipes”—and presumably tries to assemble some tea cakes that get lost in the mini oven.

“Don’t burn yourself,” he jovial giant jokingly cautions as he takes out one of his creations.

The video ends with an important message for the holiday season. In an effort to promote the spirit of giving, Shaq reminds viewers that millions of kids will not have a toy this Christmas and encourages us all to donate time, money, and gifts to those in need.
