This one was pretty tricky, but not as hard as the ferris wheel. I made all the parts by cooking them really slowly to get as much of the moisture out of them as I could. When you cook a pancake for about 15 minutes, it gets crispy on the outside and stays pretty tasty in the middle. After the parts were cooked, I used pancake batter to ‘glue’ the whole thing together on the griddle. The heat from the griddle cooks it pretty well, although you need a pretty high tolerance to pain (hot).
The best part about this pancake was that it was half toy, half food. Allie actually played with it for about 2 minutes before the whole thing fell apart (some went onto the floor, good fortune for our English bulldog, Bailey). Allie thought it was pretty cool, but she’s still bugging me for a unicorn. Horses are hard to draw, let alone make into a pancake. We’ll see, maybe this weekend.
