Pancake Art

"Mom," my teenage daughter said. "Can you make pancakes?"

"Sure," I said. "Are you craving them?"

She shook her head. "No. I want to make pancake art."

"What?"

"Pancake art. Everybody is doing it. Here, look at these pictures." She rolled through her Instagram photos and showed me all kinds of artistic pancake "carvings" her friends had made. They were impressive.

"Okay," I said. "But when you're done playing with your food, are you going to eat it?"

"No. Carbs aren't good for you."

Right.

In case you want to see a sample of pancake art, here's a picture:

  1. Hi, dear Sherry! Why settle for portraiture? If your daughter is taking requests I'd like her to replicate the Sistine Chapel. :)

  4. Yea, these things are kind of ridiculous. My wife is trying to figure out how to do it but runs into the interesting problem of being an artist but not having ANY cooking experience so...no luck yet. haha

    If your daughter wants to make it and not eat it then she should make sure she has someone who will or she should plasticize the good ones.

    1. Could definitely be a problem if you don't know how to make them! You might have to do the cooking for her.

  5. I guess I miss a lot by not being on Instagram or Pinterest--LOL! Those are remarkable, though.

    1. I can't imagine how much time it takes to do this. I certainly don't have the time!

  7. Wow, that pancake art is really impressive. I wonder how much practice it takes.

  8. I couldn't eat those, and not because of the carbs. They're too real.

    Love,

    1. I probably wouldn't want to eat anything that looked like a living animal, either.

    1. Somebody must've been really bored who started this.

  11. I remember seeing photos of pancake art before, but never attempted it myself. I don't believe carbs are bad, so that's probably for the best. It'd be such a shame to eat all that art after creating it, after all! XD

    1. I'm sure the pancakes would be cold by the time the artwork was finished. I wouldn't eat them just because of that. ;0)

  12. I would be happy to volunteer to eat the pancake art for you!

  14. Along with coffee art these pancake pictures seem very popular at the moment. A shame to eat them but on the other hand, carbs or not, I couldn't see them go to waste.

    1. Having kids, you learn about all kinds of crazes.

  16. Pancake art? I haven't heard of this one yet... I am sure Valentina will be mentioning it soon enough. Although neither of us are too creative that way :)

    1. You'll have to let me know if you attempt your own pancake art.

  17. Love your daughter's creativity, Sherry. I'd never heard of pancake art, but now I have. Did she create the pancakes as shown above?

  18. I hadn't heard of this trend! Those art pieces made out of pancakes are amazing. I would rather eat pancakes, but I think the art could be fun too!
