I love. love. LOVE making pancake shapes! I get nearly as giddy as my kids. Ok. Whatever. I get more giddy. There’s just something so satisfying than having a pancake turn out so pretty! I do let them eat them, but not before I take some photos, of course! This past Sunday morning I made some Christmas trees, candy canes, a snowman and then because I also love to write out words with pancake batter for some odd reason, I made a Merry Christmas sign out of pancakes.
Cute? Yep! And festive!
Want a couple tips? When writing out words or letters, remember the good side is going to be the underneath side when you are squeezing it out onto your griddle or pan. In order to get some nice looking letters, you need to write backwards. That way when you flip them over, the good side will be the correct way
Also, put your griddle on lower than you normally would to cook pancakes and let them stay on a bit longer. Your risk of browning or burning them go way, way down!
