To make a stack of pancakes, you need a crane

Pancake art - tower crane 3d pancake
I think this one is my favorite so far. Allie thinks it’s cool, but it’s not a princess so she doesn’t really care to much. Perhaps Ryan would appreciate it if he was older than 3 months. Anyway, the ‘pancake tower crane’ was pretty fun to build, but I definitely need a bigger griddle for these things. Also, I need to remember that cast iron is stupid-hot even though it doesn’t look like it. In a couple weeks I’m sure my calluses will better protect me from the heat.

    This is amazing, Jim. I hope you’ve thought about self-publishing a book with all of these pics. This is such a fun idea and I think people would love it– something like a kitchen geek’s coffee table book. :-)

    I remember my mom making shaped pancakes for Sunday morning breakfasts after friends had stayed the night when I was a kid. They were usually hearts or tiny animals or stars because she used to fill the insides of medium to small metal cookie cutters with batter to make the shapes. I love this site and the pictures you post here!

    That`s amazing. First time here! I loved the turtle, and the growing flowers and laughed a lot with the volcano!

    Tomorrow morning guess what

    You quite possibly are the coolest dad ever! :) Also, this crane amazes me. I’m 17. I want to be a pancake artist. haha, for real though, make a book for parents to make things like this with their kids! Memories like constructing pancake cranes when you’re a little kid just don’t fade.

    This is making me grin so much! We’ve been doing “pancake art” for the kidletts for a while. I think it was my first ever blog post I did, but hells bells! 3D pancake art! This is fabulous and I want a go right now! How on earth do I get in touch with you to geek out over pancake art?

    I have a two year old son that is currently obsessed with cranes – he would die if this was on the breakfast table! Awesome work!

    These are great! I’m inspired. One question though…how do you get them to stay together?
