Yaaaaaay! I am excessively fond of cephalopods. Those are lovely.

Sorry but I am calling foul..... or photoshop rather. The light reflections on the plates are far to similar for this to be legit.

Nathan Shields said...

I'm flattered. Don't worry, no pancakes were photoshopped during the making of this breakfast. I did put each one on the same plate for a picture though.

I guess you're just going to have to make more videos on YouTube to prove these are real! Seems like a win win to me! Ha. Great work

Joanne Jongsma said...

oh my god, how do you manage the different shades?

Michele Galasso said...

Crazy thought here... But maybe when you put the same plate under the same light you get the same reflection....

Seems like it has to do with how much butter/oil is painted into different areas? More butter = darker color when applied to heat. Maybe?

Judge Mental said...

i want to make them!

Too beautiful to eat. Did they get eaten?

Nathan Shields said...

Oh yes, there was no escape.

So much awesomeness! 'Would love to see a youtube tutorial on how to do this.

I assume you're using some sort of syringe to apply the batter...?

Lolly's Library said...

My guess is he "painted" the darker areas first, using some sort of syringe for the batter, so that they cooked the longest on the griddle; the lighter areas were added last, meaning they didn't cook as long.

Can you make the molds available for all?
