Weekends are meant for pancakes, waffles and French toast — especially during the fall months. As the weather gets cooler, the meals get a little heartier. But sometimes pancakes can get somewhat routine: maple syrup, maybe a sprinkle of powdered sugar, some fruit and butter.
One man, however, is taking the Sunday morning pancake tradition to a new level. Call it competitive pancake design. Travis Millard, the man behind Fudge Factory Comics, has been spending his Sunday mornings masterly designing new pancake art and sharing his creations on Instagram using the hashtag #PancakeMorning.
These aren’t your normal heart-shaped pancakes. He’s flipped everything from pizza, iPods, counting sheep and bowls of fruit (see photo above). How does he do it? According to an Instagram blog post, “Just pick up any generic ketchup squirter and draw into the pan with it ….”
