Winter break means three things: relaxing, watching Netflix/Hulu/Youtube and eating. In looking to accomplish all three activities at once, I stumbled upon Saipancakes, the Youtube channel of one creative dad making some unique pancakes. Now, I’ve always known food is a beautiful thing, but Nathan Shields, the creator of Saipancakes, has taken this concept to a whole new level. I mean look at this:

Inspired by these videos and a fantastically catchy, pancake-themed remix of Taylor Swift’s Blank Space (shout out to the Morse FroCo’s), I decided to roll up my sleeves and give it a shot. All that was needed was a squirt bottle, griddle, pancake batter and imagination. While my first attempts were not without epic, blob-shaped failures, I got better with practice. You know what they say: practice makes perfect. Though my final products were far from masterpieces, they were definitely delicious and fun to make. Below, check out some of my creations.
Next time you have a hankering for some hot cakes, give it a try!
