Puppy Day Pancake
Updated: Aug 27, 2020
I was inspired by these awesome Thai street food YouTube videos from Yummyboy & these food artists I've seen on IG and Pinterest (in particular for this one -- Cute Chi Chai). This is a quick and fun thing I did for Puppy Day, but you can have fun with your food any day!
What is Puppy Day?
"Observed each year on March 23rd, National Puppy Day celebrates the unconditional love and affection puppies bring to our lives. Their cuddles and wiggles make us smile and without a doubt, there are squeals of delight when there are puppies around!
The day also brings awareness to the need for care of and homes for orphaned pups as well as to educate people about the horrors of puppy mills across the country. Puppies are a big responsibility. Be sure to consider everything involved and adopt from a shelter. The puppies there need love and a home just as much as any other and they grow into loyal pets, too!
National Puppy Day was founded in 2006 by Pet Lifestyle Expert, Animal Behaviorist and Author, Colleen Paige. Paige is also the founder of National Dog Day and National Cat Day."
For these pancakes, I was inspired by a super cute photo from Cute Chi Chai on Pinterest.
What I used:
- Raspberry (I didn't have a strawberry, which is what it looked like the tongue on one of them was made of)
I think there are some black sesame seeds and I'm not sure what the other thing was: maybe licorice? I didn't have those.
I was going to use chocolate candy melt in place of the licorice, but I just ended up using an edible marker.
This puppy dog pancake is made of different parts: head, trunk/front legs, 2 ears and tail.
I put the pancake mix in a plastic bag, snipped the corner & tried to draw the pancakes into little shapes. I suppose I could have used my pastry tips, but I didn't. Haha.
Here are different little pieces.
Then I just put them together and added blueberries for eyes and a piece of raspberry for a tongue. I drew on the other parts with an edible marker.
We are good at this. They are not as super cute as the ones from Cute Chi Chai, but they turned out pretty well. The nice thing if you are trying to make pancakes of different shapes is that -- even if you mess up, it still tastes good & you can eat it just the same. :) Haha!
I made a couple. One has kind of a bigger head, sort of looks like a bulldog puppy or something. Haha. :)
Give it a try! We are good at this!
