Diner owner Bill Smith has perfected his craft of pancake portraits to such a level it caught the attention of the Food Network. The flapjack artist from New Jersey has created these amazing likenesses of celebrity chefs Guy Fieri, Paula Dean, Bobby Flay, and extreme cake creator Duff Goldman.
According to Food Network and Smith you can make your own pancake portraits at home. Fill a squeeze bottle with batter and draw an outline and details of the face you want to create. Let these cake lines cook for a while and then fill in the rest with more batter. The original outline will show up darker since they have been fried longer.
They suggest you start with a simple happy face design and work your way up to the caliber of Bill Smith--no doubt.
