We're impressed by the meal above. It looks absolutely delicious and we are most definitely craving tacos and steak now. But wait, it's not what it seems!
Fifty-three year old Michael Goudeau, a professional juggler from Las Vegas, Nevada, prepares breakfast for his two young children every morning. What started out as a fun way to make his children laugh quickly turned into an interesting hobby and he now creates simple drawings, three-dimensional sculptures and even some famous paintings with pancakes!
Pigs in a blanket, caterpillars, snails, pigs, turtles, christmas trees — he's made quite a number of pancake art throughout the years. Through years of trial and error he has learned to adjust the heat to control the colour of the batter and can achieve different colour tones of brown. He uses a bottle with a nozzle to control his designs so batter doesn't fly everywhere and said that with the help of the bottle, it was easier to do letters, designs and easy shapes.
After he learned and mastered the basics, he started creating three-dimensional pancake art and used food colouring to add a realistic aspect to his art. The photo above really illustrates the successful use of his skills which he acquired through practice.
Goudeau spends hours creating his masterpieces and takes a photo of each and every one before eating his creations. He's published his own book, which you can take a look at here. Also, check out his blog, http://thepancakeproject.com/, for more pictures.
