This weekend saw the follow-up to our Giant Cupcake Baking Adventure with a giant Rainbow Pancake. I thought we were going to make mini pie jars but it turns out that Lisa doesn’t really like pies for some odd reason but seriously, how can you NOT like pie? It’s the most amazing thing in the world. It’s like a giant pastry of goodness that you eat in slices.
So we compromised with Rainbow Pancakes, which was a lot harder than you think. Not only do you have to find a good pancake recipe (which we made from scratch, thank you very much, with milk pilfered from the office kitchen, which I had nothing to do with, thank you very much), but you also had to make sure there was enough food dye to create the vibrant colors of the light spectrum.
But we did it! I also love our new camera.
The difference in the pancakes’ thickness was due to our lack of planning in how many pancake rainbows we were going to make and then ending up just making one giant pancake per color. Yeah. Listen, this is tiring work.
Also, my camera makes Lisa feel very self conscious but how could I resist? She’s so photogenic.
Coming up next month: a giant Oreo cookie cake. We are not kidding. We just have to figure out what to put inside, since apparently all the Fluff we had for our cupcake is all gone.
