YouTuber “Tiger Tomato” creates pop culture pancakes like the Sonic version pictured above using standard pancake mix (with added water), food coloring and raw talent. The perfectly even tones are reportedly the result of using low heat – only turning it up at the end of the creative process to get a fully cooked result.
TigerTomato has created a bevy of edible breakfast art including Pikachu, Adventure Time characters, and even My Little Pony’s Rainbow Dash.

Ralph, Tails, George and Oz are tortoises. Generally speaking, a tortoise’s diet consists mainly of leafy greens. So, when these tiny tortoises came across some tiny pancakes in this latest Buzzfeed video, they were a bit confused. One of them even looked down right daunted. But, thankfully, the video has a happy ending, as all the tortoises realized that pancakes are, in fact, quite tasty.

We’ve featured plenty of pancake art over the years, but what if you’re lazy and/or unskilled? Thanks to 3D printing, pancake art is becoming accessible to the masses.
The PancakeBot is a unique device that can translate just about any digital image or design into delicious pancakes. Designer Miguel Valenzuela told Fast Company that he came up with the idea for the printer after his three-year-old daughter made a request for a pancake-printing machine made out of Lego. The first prototype was exactly that.
Valenzuela started up a Kickstarter to fund the latest version of PancakeBot, and the campaign quickly blew past it’s goal. It’s fairly affordable too. Currently, a pledge of $179 or more will get you an early model. Retail pricing is expected to be $299.

See how these artful pancakes were made in the video after the break.
To celebrate the premiere of the latest season of The Walking Dead, pancake maker extraordinaire Nathan Shields of Saipancakes has created pancakes themed to the show. He’s previously shown us how to make zombie pancakes, so this time he’s focused on the show’s human characters. Just don’t let the two pancakes mingle or you know there’s going to be a fight.
