Ever since I came across Jim's blog, I've been dying to make fabulous pancakes in fun shapes. Go on and click over, just be forewarned that you're likely to spend all damn day there. I am guessing whomever the first pancake mix company to scoop him up will be sitting on a gold mine.
I attempted to do the Eiffel Tower. Let's just say the french won that battle. It was freaking AWESOME until the flip. The damn flip gets me every time!
And then, I grabbed my AmeriColor Red and turned that batter Lightening Red.
I made the batter a bit more thin than normal and put it into a plastic squeeze bottle that I usually use for flood icing, I then cut most of the tip off to make it easier to squeeze out. I added two chocolate chips to serve as eyes.
Granted, other than the color, it doesn't much look like Lightening, but to Finn it sure did. He was so excited and can't wait until the next installment of Mommy cooking crazy pancakes. It is the little things people, the little things.
How was your weekend? Did you spend some time enjoying the little things?
