I began with the basic pancake recipe mix-whisked together
4oz‘s plain flour,1/2 pint of milk,1 medium egg,pinch of salt.
once you have whisked together the above ingredients seprate half the mixture - one half add few drops of green food coloring.
then heat a sml amount of oil in a frying pan and once really hot pour the misture into the frying pan and wait until it starts to brown then Flip it over! once ready set to one side on a plate.
repeat this again for the other half of the mixture which you have added the green food colouring.
now the fun begins as this is where you become an artist! take the pancake and start using your imagination.
I then crushed some digestive biscuits as i had the idea that they would be great in the scene i was going to make-i took a red charger plate as i thought it would make a great background-nice and bright! i then went about making a scene with my pancakes-first i placed the crushed biscuits at the base and then i cut out a tree shape placing it on the plate and judging by eye where best to put the branches.I then took the green pancake and using scissors i cut out spiral shapes and then rolled them up to make flower like shapes to use in the scene.I broke off small pieces of green pancake in random sizes for leaves on the branches-It was starting to take shape nicely i thought!
now im going to make an owl! I cut out another shape which i thought looked like the outline of an owl *twit twoo* an owl has to have big eyes hmm what have i got that i could use that was again edible...hmm there was my fruit bowl and a kiwi so sliced to slices and placed them onto the body shape YAY it worked! i placed two oval shape gold ebible beads as pupils,i loved the way it made the owl look all alert! now i needed to make him a nice breast of feathers,but what could i use?!?! aha cereal and my Son loved his malties or as he calls them “Squares“ i got a knife out and tried to cut them in half... hehe what was i thinking of?as if they would slice neatly without breaking ermm nope! so instead i left them whole and placed them diagonally in a fashion that would make it look like his breast feathers..all plump!I sliced orange for the lil fellas wings and a triangle of orange peel for his beak.With the pancake that was left over i cut out stars using a star cutter and took some silver and blue edible beads and placed them randomly.I finished it all off with some orange peel stars and a light dusitng of edible glitter... taa daa!!.......... there it is i have a delightful Pancake Wintery Scene *Twit Twoo*
