You got it!! I know your pancakes and syrup are amazing---like everything else you do.
Thanks you SO much for the wonderful treats yesterday. They were hard to eat at first because they were so beautiful in their package. We succumbed though. They were wonderful. Thank you! Thank you!

I never heard of a pancake pen. What a riot! I don't think I'd ever make round pancakes again if I had something like that, LOL!

I saw those pens and wondered how I'd ever use them -- now you've shown me! They look VERY cool -- thanks for the ideas!

What a fabulous idea. I will have to get one of these as the kiddos would love these fun pancakes.
Have a great day!

Oh my, those look so good. I wonder could I find one of those over here! I am now on the hunt! (And I don't even have any kids to impress!)
