I could probably write an entire book on the imperfections of my homemaking skills... but since this one is still fresh on my mind, I'll share my Mardi Gras Pancake flop.
Having seen some gorgeous rainbow pancakes featured on Ohdeedoh a few weeks ago, I thought that Pancake Tuesday would be the perfect time to try them out. I don't like to use too much food colouring on a regular basis, so I really like to make a big deal out of special occasions.
They turned out beautifully. I think next time, I would cook them on a lower heat so they didn't brown so much - it took away from the food colouring a bit.
So... here's where the flop comes in. The girls sit down for a great picture..
I had accidentally put in two tablespoons of baking powder, instead of one! Oops.
So, after all of that, we ended up eating leftover roast beef.
At least the picture is perfect!
