pancakes

pancakebot-kickstarter.0.0

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.

day of the dead pancakes

Dia de los Muertos—the Day of the Dead is celebrated on November 1st, and if you haven’t made sugar skulls yet, consider creating them from pancakes. That’s what pancake wizard Nathan Shields did, and the results are intricate and beautiful. The trick? Put your pancake batter in a squeeze bottle. And be very, very patient.

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.

See the how-to video after the break.

Once again, Nathan Shields has stepped up his Dad game with these creeptastic zombie pancakes. He’s come up with hundreds of cool designs over at Saipancakes, but these are the ones that you need to break out for the kids this weekend to get them ready for Halloween. He even created a time-lapse video to show how he did it so you can make undead pancakes, too.

red velvet corndog

Like corn dogs and pancakes? Then this post is for you. The Vulgar Chef “got drunk and made corn dogs a few ways” and that includes wrapping hot dogs in pancakes. He used blueberry pancakes for one version and red velvet pancakes on another. He doesn’t got into any details on how he made them but don’t let that stop you from experimenting!

The rest of us are going to have to step up our games next Saturday morning if we want to keep up with these pancake creations. Redditor ptgkbgte posted these pictures from a friend who didn’t just make shaped pancakes for his kids, but made them full on color pictures.
