For the past couple of weeks I have been playing around with decorating pancakes for Easter.
Making egg shaped pancakes turned out to be harder for me than I would like to admit.
When the opportunity came to team up with International Delight, I knew right away that the spout on their bottle would work perfect to pour pancakes and help me make the best shapes eggs for the kids to decorate!
It turns out the pour spout works great for pouring pancake batter into a hot pan, too!
I felt like I had so much control over where the batter would land. Perfect!
Once I mastered the Easter egg pancake, we turned breakfast into activity time for the kids.
To set up a pancake decorating station you’ll need a few things:
- Pancake mix: Use your favorite pancake recipe or a mix.
- International Delight bottle: I’m so excited about this! Can you imagine the uses? The kids can get involved and make their own pancakes. Mixing batter once and keeping it in the fridge so Daddy can make fresh pancakes after we’ve all eaten. And for taking premixed batter camping?!?! YAY!
- Frosting: We mixed powdered sugar with a tiny bit of milk. Make sure to add only a little milk at a time, the frosting gets really runny, really fast.
- Food coloring
- Plastic baggy: Sandwich size worked well for this. Or you can use a plastic pastry bag [affiliate link to support hands on : as we grow].
- Hungry kids: Although you don’t want them to be too hungry or they won’t make it all the way through the decorating. My kids each ate a pancake before we started [that was a good way to get rid of the practice pancakes].
Just let them decorate pancakes!
I filled the plastic baggies with colored frosting.
When the kids were ready, I cut a small corner of the tip of the bag. Make sure the hole is really small. You can always make it bigger if not enough frosting is coming out.
Figuring out where and how hard to squeeze is a little bit of a challenge [in a good way, of course]. For younger kids try guiding their hands until they can feel where to put pressure. Then let them take control.
Time for sprinkles! I like to fill a cup with sprinkles, instead of giving them the entire bottle. [We use less that way.]
All that’s left to do is gobble up those delicious [and adorable] Easter pancakes.
Have your kids had fun decorating pancakes?
