I finally made one of my favorite things from when I was little, the “AT-AT” from Star Wars. This was not easy, but well worth it It took a little more planning than usual, since four-legged pancake creations seem to be the most difficult to engineer. Here’s the super-scientific blueprints I started from:
I ended up making all the legs straight. Placing them in a walking configuration proved too unstable. In all, there are 13 pieces, all held together with pancake batter. Here’s a shot of some of the pieces cooking on the griddle:
Total time to create it was about 15 minutes, mostly because it took a while to get the legs “crispy” enough to hold up the body. From there, I placed the parts back on the griddle and used more pancake batter as “glue”. If you let the parts sit on low heat for long enough, the batter eventually cooks through and makes a nice strong connection.
Here’s a short video of the finished piece. Video shows the 3D look a little better:
Allie wanted to eat a flower pancake, so this one was eaten by me, while humming the Darth Vader theme. Perfect.
Any suggestions for another?
