Message in a Pancake!

We saw some really cool pancakes on an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri. Here's our quickie version.
Pancake Mix (and what ever else your mix calls for)
Sandwich Baggy
Oil or Butter
Step 1: Make pancake batter..follow box directions.Step 2: Fill sandwich baggy with a little bit of batter. We used 1/4 of the batter. Snip one corner of the sandwich this can be used as your piping "writing" tip.
Step 3:Grease pan with oil or butter, heat and draw your design.
Step 4: After the design is cooked a bit..the edges of your design will slightly brown, pour batter over the design of the pancake.Step 5: Continue to cook the pancake as usual...wait for the little bubbles to form and flip.
Voila! Message in a pancake!

Come on... so fun and so cute! It really is okay to play with your food and my mom always said, "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. "
