Shane's pancakes this weekend were spectacular. Seriously, he is a pancake artist. Lydia and I went out and picked leaves and Shane based his pancake shapes on Lydia's favorite one.
After making the pancake batter, Shane separated it in thirds. He used red food coloring to dye one batch red, one batch yellow and combined red and yellow food coloring to make the third batch orange. The colors were a bit vibrant, so he added chocolate syrup to dull them. He added each batch to a condiment dispenser and drew the leaves directly on the skillet.
