pop!YUM

Weekends with my pop!TOT  are filled with tons of activities from the moment she gets up until the moment we pass out…. literally! We typically wake up at 7am or 8am if it’s a good day.  Today? 6:30am!!! So we watched Yo Gabba Gabba for about an hour as I tried to grasp onto that final hour of rest. She jumped, shaked and shimmied it out and then it came… “mommy what are we doing today?”  (Le sigh) Geez, I really should have put more thought into this weekend. lol

I remembered how much she enjoyed making her rainbow pancakes and thought about how we could create Teddy Bear pancakes and then wah-lah! It came to me… Mickey Mouse pancakes! After googling his face, I started practing drawing his face and then went into the kitchen to get the ingredients. Luckily, this recipe doesn’t have a lot of ingredients… just a little time which is exactly what we had!

Check out how to make Mickey Mouse Pancakes!

DSC_0485I used a pot cover like a cookie cutter to create his round face

DSC_0476For the ears, we poured in Hersey Syrup

DSC_0487You can pour the batter into the cookie cutter or cut after the pancakes have formed

DSC_0496With any dish I usually have an additional practice dish so I can try out my techniques in advance. It allows me to tweak as needed without ruining my dishes. This is when I determined it would be better to make his smile with the batter rather than the syrup.
