First, a confession: I don't love pancakes. Never have. When I was a kid, I wouldn't touch them. My brother helped make them and eat them every chance he got. Micah, you're welcome! I hope enjoyed all the extra pancakes.
But everyone else in my world loves them. And my kids will eat them. So I make them a lot. We saw a man on a TV show making sculptures and pretty pictures out of pancake batter. It looked like fun. And you know what? It Is!! I still don't love eating the things, but making them is now an act of creativity!
Make sure you get all the lumps out even if the box (that's right, I use the box!) says it will be lumpy. You don't want a clogged nozzle.
Consider adding extra water/milk to your mixture to make it thinner. It's easier to squeeze.
Add food coloring for colored pancake pictures.
You can make your own pen by cutting a wider tip on a regular condiment squeeze bottle!!
Fancy pancakes for everyone! (except me please)
