Star Wars pancakes

Happy Father's Day! My husband and small child are SW geeks so I thought making special pancakes were fitting for this special day. My husband saw the SW pancake molds too early- he had a friend who sent him the Williams Sonoma link and he very excitedly told me about the molds. I was disappointed because I was going to buy them secretly and then surprise him with the pancakes. Oh well. I bought the molds and showed them to him, content to just surprise our son with the pancakes that morning.

They were very easy to make, especially with my pancake pen! I just had to let one side of the pancake cook in the mold for 2 minutes, remove the (nonstick) mold carefully, and then flip the pancake. It held its shape nicely but I used a toothpick to trim some extra edges and to make sure the eyes and other cut-outs were neat.

Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, and Yoda!

So I definitely give these pancakes molds a big thumbs up! I know we'll use them often :)
