Not Your Average Pancakes

So I'll bet you never considered pancakes as an artform.

My husband was the chef at a children's school for 8 years and every Friday he made designer pancakes for the pre-schoolers. Their job was to try and stump him with their requests and they came close a couple of times, but he always managed to create something that delighted each and every one of them.

If you have little ones at home or if your kids are having a pajama party announce the Designer Pancake Challenge and see how you do. His first tool was a turkey baster filled with pancake batter. The kids called it his "pancake pencil", but he was soon "drawing" freehand with a large spoon. I won't tell if you decide to practice before facing the family food critics.
