As this video from the Insider YouTube channel demonstrates, it doesn’t take much to make pancakes of different shapes. Mix up your favourite pancake batter (or pre-mix from the supermarket) pour it into a squeeze bottle, get the pan hot, and start drawing.
Kids will get excited about the shapes, and may want to make their own. It’s an easy way to do something a little more advanced than those Mickey Mouse-shaped pancakes you’ve been dishing out for years. You can get squeeze bottles from most discount stores for a few bucks, so it’s not a huge investment either.
