Artistically challenged parents who want to give their children more playful breakfasts can now do just that thanks to pancake stencils created by Nathan Shields, an artist famous for his creative batter skills. These pancake stencils include one for Darth Vadar and another for Disney Princess Elsa. Clearly Sheilds was concerned with being inclusive when it came to the gender of his children.

With one pancake stencil for highlights and another for shadows, it is a cinch to create a sugary portrait on top of a traditional pancake. Full of depth and detail, children will be begging to eat a healthy breakfast more often than not. Shields was inspired by an idea from pitw.com. He used icing sugar for the highlights and cocoa for the shadows.
