Please don’t eat me!
Last time we layered our way to a smaller dragon. This time we go for the close up! You can have fun with the eyebrows to make different expressions too. If you hold off on the syrup a bit and let your kids play with those eyebrows too you’ll probably earn your “fun mom” merit badge. 😀 Ooo – make him a mustache piece! Or a hat! It’s like Mr. Potato head for your pancake breakfast. If you try it, share photos!!
This guy is all about the layers. None of the shapes are particularly tough to make in themselves. The trick is to use a thicker pancake batter ( I used the Pioneer Woman’s Perfect Pancakes recipe) and start with a standard circle or oval and then push or pull the batter with the bottom of a spoon to get a spike or a tip or a corner. Just start with your spoon closer to the center of the oval and lightly drag it out in the direction you want the spike or go or the corner to come out of the circle. Make lots of batter and make lots of mistakes and then (too bad) you have to eat the rejects! 😉 And you’ll get the hang of it!
Here’s how to piece this guy together step by step!
