Mornings just got a little more exciting with the intricate pancake work of stay at home dad and blogger at Saipancakes, Nathan Shields. Each morning he sends his two kids off to school with these super neat pancakes designed to look like underwater creatures, cartoon characters and other recognizable faces.

Shields' latest batch of fluffy morning cakes are a collection of aquatic animals such as squids, crabs, fish and octopuses. To get the detail of the creatures just right, Shields uses a squeeze bottle for his batter. He creates shadows and color textures by filling out the lines and shapes that need to cook longer first and then the ones that need to be lighter last. This way, Shields ends up with a life-like, and edible, of depiction of the animals. Stats for Aquatic Pancake Art Trending: Older & Mild
