- Pancake batter
- Squeeze bottles
- Food coloring ( we used neon food colors to make the pancakes really vibrant)
These smaller bottles are Wilton candy making bottles found with the cake decorating supplies at Wal-Mart. They come in a 2-pack for $2. Both types of bottles worked well. The candy making bottles are just a little smaller.
Making Pancake Art
1. Fill up your bottles with batter
2. Drop food coloring into each bottle and shake, shake, shake
3. Think of the griddle as your canvas!
4. Have your art and eat it too
A few tips
- Make the outline of the shape first and then fill it in
- Cook the pancakes on a very low heat to keep the color nice and give you ample time to create your masterpiece
- If you are making a complex shape, make it in pieces ( if you are making a flower, pour your stems, leaves and petals separately)
- I don't think any good comes of children hanging out by hot griddles, so it's best to have a parent run the griddle and just let the kids order up the art and eat it.
