If it looks like panCAKEs?!

If it looks like pancakes, does that mean I can eat it for breakfast?

My husband always teases me when I eat cake for breakfast so I thought if I made it look like a breakfast food maybe it would pass. Ok, maybe not but every once in awhile I do like to indulge and get my kick first thing in the morning. Afterall, it’s not that different than a pancake, muffin or doughnut.

panCAKE This cake was so much fun to make. All you have to do is roll a piece of fondant into a rope and wrap it around the cake one piece at a time. After each layer you paint on some food coloring (I used brown and yellow). The top was a round piece that I folded in the edges and painted as well. Then all you have to do is cut a square of yellow fondant for the butter and drizzle on some syrup.

panCAKE The perfect breakfast for someone with an incurable sweet tooth!

  2. That looks great! My wife has a sweet tooth also!

  3. What a cute idea for a cake.

    I just learned how to use fondant this year. I can’t wait to make more cakes using it.

  4. I LOVE this one! She is very talented.

  5. OMG, how cute is that.

  6. I stared at that first picture for a little longer than I would like to admit wondering how that was cake-cake and not pancakes before scrolling down to see the slice taken out of it. That cake is absolutely amazing!

  7. This would be great for next year’s April Fool’s Day joke :) Pinning it!

      That would be a great idea! I also thought it would be a neat spin if you actually made a stack of pancakes, covered in whip cream and decorated it with some strawberries to make it look like a cake.

  8. Erna, you have multiple talents! I love this page. Ellen tried the stack of pancakes a few months ago, only used thinly sliced cakes, wrapped in fondant and painted. This is a great idea, and looks delicious.

  9. Ha! Fabulous :))

  10. fun!

  11. Oh my gosh – this is awesome! If I ever do a PJ & Pancakes Birthday post, I’ll love to link up to this fun idea. Now I want cake…
