Snowman Pancakes

On the weekdays I don't have time to make fun or fancy breakfasts. On the weekends I splurge a little more. This morning I made Snowman Pancakes.


3 blobs of pancake batter on a griddle and you have yourself a snowman. The eyes are dark chocolate chips, the nose it 1/2 a small m&m and the buttons are small m&ms. I suppose I could have gone a step farther and dusted them with white powdered sugar, but the boys were happy with them just as they were. They didn't even have any syrup on them. I added a little more flavor to the pancake batter. We didn't have any buttermilk, so I made my own with lemon juice and milk. I just added more lemon to make the buttermilk. The pancakes had a subtle lemon flavor.

Mica thought Mr. Snowman needed a scarf. Any ideas? I suppose I could have used some spinach if I had some more.

Usually we have more spinach on our plates, but we ran out this morning. Mica says he hates eggs, but we make him eat them every once and awhile. I also made juice: 1 apple, 1 kiwi, a clump of grapes and 1/2 a cucumber.

This looks great!

You asked about the cake classes. There are 4 levels, and the later 2 involve fondant. They offer them at AC Moore and Jo-ANn Fabrics. They are pretty pricey normally but I used coupons to purchase a lot of the supplies, and waited until the classes were on sale to pay for those.

somehow I've never tried that, the thought just hadn't crossed my mind, but it's genius. Any suggestions on the actual pancakes other than plain or blueberry?
