3D Dinosaur Bones Pancake

3D Dinosaur Pancake During our recent trip to New York we visited the Museum of Natural History. We got to see some really cool dinosaur skeletons. Allie thought they were pretty cool, so I thought I’d see if I could recreate one in pancake form.

Allie and I in front of a T-Rex

Here’s what I started with (I made all the shapes first then put them together with pancake batter):

parts for the dinosaur pancake

And here’s Allie with the finished product…she saying “RAAAARRRRRRRRARARRRR!!!!”

    I’m pretty sure you’re like the best dad ever! I never got dinosaur pancakes. But then again, Asian parents aren’t known for pancake breakfasts :X

    Dear Jim,

    I don’t particularly like kids, but your pancakes still rock. Ergo, you must be doing something right. Perhaps you have captured the Platonic perfection that pancakes dream of being. Keep it up.

  10. AmberDawn October 15, 2010 at 4:25 am #

    Oh, and also, that caption at the top, “Just trying to make some cool pancakes for my daughter” was one of the most adorable things ever! :)

    Wow, this is incredible! I don’t think it ever would have occurred to me to make a 3D dinosaur skeleton out of pancakes… but bravo! You certainly an adventurous and fun dad! I’m curious as to what your daughter topped them with. ;)

  16. Susan October 15, 2010 at 1:33 pm #

    I wish I were so creative! My daughters would love these pancakes!

    We love all your pancakes. And we also said O.M.G. when we saw just about every one. William, 8, thinks you should make brontosaurus. He’s really into dinos. Keep up the awesome art!!!

  26. David A. October 16, 2010 at 5:24 am #

    Your daughter is just way too cute :)

  27. Betty @ scrambled hen fruit October 16, 2010 at 6:41 am #

    My dad was a pancake artist too, but not as fancy as this! I’d hate to eat it! Amazing. :)

  28. Pam October 16, 2010 at 1:37 pm #

    How do you get the cooked pancakes to stand up, I would think they would be somewhat floppy after a couple of minutes. Do you use a special batter?

  29. itch October 16, 2010 at 1:59 pm #

    You seriously need to do a book. Cash in on your 15 minutes, and have some back to the pancake batter fund.

    The dinosaur is, by far, the coolest pancake ever. Of all time,

  30. Amanda October 17, 2010 at 12:33 am #

    That is the coolest thing I have ever seen. I can’t believe it’s possible! And the picture with your daughter is adorable!

  31. Fiona October 18, 2010 at 6:26 pm #

    I am so impressed! Those are really outstanding and I wanted to say thank you for sharing the pictures and techniques.

  33. Heidi November 9, 2010 at 12:37 pm #

    Hi, Jim–

    Just letting you know that my 2nd grade son is taking in photos of the impressive dino creation for his “Interesting Facts” sharing turn…with the potty pancake as an optional, IF teacher-approved, finale.

    Your artistry is admirable, sir. And your daughter is a superb model. My only question: does she really like the taste of cold pancakes? : )

  34. ag. November 22, 2010 at 2:21 am #

    This is freaking amazing! You are one talented individual!!!

  35. ubon November 22, 2010 at 6:51 am #

    You are the best.
    Your girl is sooooo lucky.

    greeting from Thailand

  36. Ashleigh November 27, 2010 at 2:51 pm #

    How the heck do you make pancakes like this?!?! AMAZING!!! plus you have such a cute daughter!!

  37. Charles January 7, 2011 at 6:32 am #

    Awesome, my dad makes pancakes all the time. Wish they were as cool as yours! How do you get the pancakes to stand up like that, don’t they fall over?

  38. dedeh January 16, 2011 at 1:49 pm #

    OMG…… How lucky girl you are, Allie… hi… Jims, I have two little doughters and a son., sometime I don’t have any idea any more to make good breakfast for them… so please send me your recipes…. i wanna try to make it better…. thank’s

  39. Louella February 3, 2011 at 3:58 am #

    This blew me away! A 3D T-Rex fossil pancake. Are you kidding me??? All I know is make letters out of pancakes. You’re raising the bar too much – give us human parents a break, man! From now on, this site is off my son’s radar (until I’ve learned a few designs from here). Grrr.

  40. Louella February 3, 2011 at 4:00 am #

    The downside of this is, of course, she will have higher and higher expectations. ;) Love your creations. Keep them coming!

  41. M. Green March 8, 2011 at 11:07 am #

    This one is from the Crepeaceous period.

  42. tracy June 19, 2011 at 1:11 am #

    Check out the kid’s book Detective Pancake. It is a great read about a family that has their breakfast stolen.
