Ugly Pancake Contest

One ugly pancake from N. Shields at Saipancakes.

Now here’s a contest you can sink your teeth into. You have until Saturday, May 19th to enter the Ugly Pancake Contest from N. Shields at Saipancakes. The result must be edible and made of “mostly” pancake batter. The results will be judged by his 4-year-old son, so it’s probably safe to say the uglier the better. (Plus it is called an ugly pancake contest, after all.) Check out some of his decidedly non-ugly pancake variations like the ones below. Pancake art is alive and well.

A Plate Made Just For Pancakes

The Pancake Plate Designed By Jon Wye

Pancakes, being the delicious pillows of deliciousness that they are, demand a little respect. Or at least thoughtfulness. Which is why these Pancake Plates Designed By Jon Wye deserve attention. As one can see from the product photo, the syrup pools into a waiting reservoir allowing one to perfectly control the pancake-to-syrup ratio.

After the jump, check out another product photo better showing how this is accomplished. And for the heck of it, an example of how not to make a pancake plate.

Star Wars: Now In Pancake (And Cookie) Form

Star Wars™ Pancake Molds

If Star Wars and the NFL ever got together to make a baby, we’d all be doomed. The marketing machines behind both license-happy organizations would soon take over the world, branding everything from cookies to pancake molds. Oh, wait, it’s been done.

Space pancakes in space

Outer Space Pancake Molds

The nascent space tourism industry needs to get a few things straight before it really gets off the ground. First, lower the prices. Second do breakfast right. Earthbound hotels often offer a ‘continental breakfast’ consisting of coffee or tea, fruit, and a baked roll or pastry of some sort. We can do better. We can give a little something extra. We can have ‘extra-continental’.

Seeing as anyone staying at a space hotel would be off of all the continents, it would make sense to go the extra mile. Like free pancakes included with the morning meal. And of course, they have to be space pancakes. These NASA-designed inspired Outer Space Pancake Molds would do quite nicely. I’ll even bring them right over. Just send a ship, please.

No more boring round pancakes

Garden Creatures Pancake Molds

Pancakes are more fun when they are not round. Something that lives inside each and every one of use inspires us to manipulate pancake batter as often as we can. Perhaps it is because the pancake is so round that we are urged to improve upon it. After all, it pretty much is a round blank canvas, and maple syrup only goes so far.

If you’re not the Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity type, then perhaps you can indulge your pancake-manipulating fantasies with the Garden Creatures Pancake Molds. A set of three, including a snail, a butterfly and a ladybug, the nonstick cookware makes transforming your breakfast into an easy affair. Just pour in the batter and after it sets remove the mold. The result is a metamorphasized breakfast meal and a deep inner satisfaction that no boring ol’ round pancake is safe around you.
