This video warmed my heart. I love making food fun for my kids. So does Jim. Author. Sculptor. Chef. Super Dad.

When I find people having fun with their kids and fun with food, it makes me happy. If you are interested in winning a copy of Jim’s book, OMG Pancakes!, leave a comment on this post. Please share some way in which you have fun with food OR let us know what sort of pancake sculpture you would scheme up. On Wednesday, I will randomly choose a winner and a new pancake sculptor will be born!

    Omg. People never cease to amaze me. My kids freaked out about this.
    My son would love Lego star wars characters and my daughter would
    Love flowers and hello kitty. I’m looking forward to reading this book :) and
    Getting busy. What a great post–besides the one on turkey meatballs (which I make
    All the time!!). Thanks :)

    I love pancakes…great giveaway! :)

    Let’s see…my pancake sculpture would be to do four triangle pancakes and “glue” them together with frosting to make one of the pyramids! :)

    I’ve seen Jim’s work before and I think he’s such a creative parent! I love to play with the presentation of food and make it fun – I recently tried my hand at fondant and made a “cheese” cake, as well as making a large volcano cake for a friend. I would love to win this book!

    Food can be so much fun. I once made toast by cutting out a piece from it with a cookie cutter (heart, star, or any other figure)and frying it on a pan with an egg cracked in the hole. It made my child-minded boyfriend really happy the morning I made him “heart-toast” for breakfast. He kept the cut out hearts and still has them since months now!

    P.S. I’d be happy to win the book :) I like toast, but I love pancakes!

    I have tried to make different shaped pancakes before, but this is just soooo much better. Love this, and my daughter will too! Thank you for sharing, your recipes are my “go-to”, especially your cakes!

    Wow, so impressive. I would make a pancake fort and hide pancake animals inside. P is in love with forts lately. Check out this place where you can make your own pancakes on a griddle in the middle of your table: http://www.slappycakes.com. We’ll go next time you visit!

    I would love a book about pancakes. I make pancakes for my 8 year old every Sunday and my Great Pyrenees always hopes that she will get one, too. She usually does, unless she is very, very bad (i.e. if she has pooped on my bedroom floor recently and I am mad).

    When I was a kid, my mom always made pancakes shaped like stuff…hearts, mickey mouse, bunny rabbits. I do that once in a while, too. I should do it more. Isn’t that the kind of stupid but sweet stuff that makes kids happy, and that you always remember later? I guess I do anyway.

    These pancakes are adorable! I would definitely make a Totoro pancake, he always looks good in food form.

    I have a farm animal pancake set. So when we do pancakes you never know if your going to get a pig, horse, cow or chicken. I also use the celery with peanut butter and raisins for ants as a snack. One of our favorites is parmesan snakes. I take bread dough and make snakes out of them and roll in parmesan. I add sliced olives for their eyes and a small slice of red bell for their tongues.
    Making food fun is a great way to get kids to eat healthier.

    Cooking with my husband (married on Sunday!) is always a treat. We try to cook every meal together — at least when we’re home at the same time.

    I love the ferris wheel! But even more so, I love the sweet gesture Jim makes to his daughter. So many parents would say, “You can’t make a ferris wheel pancake.” and be done with it. How admirable.

  13. Erika Says:

    I would totally make a hippo pancake. He would be swimming in syrup. :)

  14. Alecia Says:

    What a cool dad! My kids would want me to make Pokemon or Star Wars characters. For sure! Thanks for the opportunity!

    My two little girls LOVE helping me in the kitchen! Doesn’t matter if they put the teaspoon of baking soda in, help pipe frosting onto cupcakes, or open the can of corn… My 5 year old has been helping me more and more lately, as she is getting the hang of being in the kitchen more than my three year old right now :) Looks like they’re going to be foodies like me!
