Pancakes in fun shapes

I purchased a set of silicone pancake molds a few months ago and was able to use them yesterday. Instead of making plain old round pancakes, I made some pancakes in cute shapes. I grew up eating pancakes with evaporated milk, sugar and butter. Sounds weird but yummy! I wonder if we are the only ones who eat pancakes this way. lol! I sometimes crave for the evap milk, butter and sugar combo but my taste buds sure have changed over time. I am now fond of eating pancakes with lots of whipped butter and maple syrup. How do you eat your pancakes?

update: The first commenter demands that I should link her post about the pancakes with evaporated milk, butter and sugar. This is for all the curious! lol! link here

Making whipped butter for pancakes:

1 stick of butter + 1/4 cup of cold milk
Beat on high speed until light and fluffy.

The butter turns a bit white and is easy to spread. .

Pancake bear, sliced bananas and chocolate chips

Star shaped pancake and sliced kiwis

Heart shaped pancake, maraschino cheries and blackberries.

Pancake caterpillar and strawberry jam

Star shaped chocolate pancake with m&ms and apple slices

My mom was feeding the kiddos. They ate pancakes before, during and after swimming!

Chocolate gold coin maker

My nieces had fun making some golden foil wrapped chocolate coins today.
Ykaie received this chocolate creation coin set last Christmas. The set includes, chocolate morsels, golden foil sheets, moulds and embossing discs.You can wrap chocolate coins and emboss them with different designs. I find it time consuming to melt the chocolate morsels using the toy then putting in the fridge to cool before you can wrap them with gold foil. It's much quicker to melt the chocolates in the microwave. I molded some chocolates ahead of time so they could just wrap and stamp them with their favorite designs.

Update: Since some of the commenters would want this for their kids, I have to note that the red container is filled with hot water to melt the chocolates. One of my nieces tried to open the lid while playing so adult supervision is advised to avoid accidents. I was the one who melted and molded the chocolates. Here's a video I found on youtube for those interested to know how the toy works. Chocolart coin press

want some?
