Pancakes... Delicious pancakes. Imagine sitting around the kitchen table enjoying a tasty stack of pancakes? Nice, no? Well now imagine them personalized with any image you can create. Personalized pancakes are the future of pancake eating technology.
I've been interested in pancake personalization for a while and have devised a few methods:
Pancake Laser Etching
Pancake Screen Printing.
Of all these methods, the screen printing worked the best. But judge for yourselves, this video shows the creation, silkscreening and sharing of cakes:
I briefly entertained the idea of laser etching pancakes but quickly found that it was not a suitable preposition. The taste of burning batter and the residue left from previous plastics was a major turn off. Still the resolution and contrast is unparalleled with the other techniques so this is a quick run down on how to laser etch your pancakes.
Design your image to be purely black and white
Resize it to make sure it fits within a 4" circle
Make some pancakes larger than 4"
Insert them into the laser engraver on top of a paper plate
Refocus the laser so the beam head is almost touching the cake
Set the power levels way down, you're only going to want to slightly toast the pancake.
