Today the Department of Awesome Parenting is sitting at the breakfast table eagerly hoping someone will make an awesome batch of animal pancakes just for them. Redditor ptgkbgte recently shared these photos of amazing pancakes that his friend (name currently unknown) makes for his own lucky kids using pancake batter dyed with food coloring.
We’re hoping more information surfaces about this creative dad and how he makes these fantastic flapjacks. If you happen to know who he is and/or if he has his own website, please let us know.

We hope you’re hungry. Today the Archie McPhee Library is cooking with The Bug Chef, David George Gordon, author of The Eat-a-Bug Cookbook [Buy on Amazon]. Last year The Bug Chef paid a visit to the Archie McPhee store where he demonstrated some of his recipes for cooking insects such as crickets, grasshoppers, ants, water bugs, spiders and centipedes. Yum!
Brave Seattleites were invited to take a taste-test and experience the flavors and textures of Chef Gordon’s creepy-crawly cuisine.
Grasshopper Kabobs were served along with “Niblets & Cricklets” (what Chef Gordon calls cups of crickets and corn), Sonoran Desert scorpions in Scorpion Scaloppini, and Deep Fried Tarantulas. The Bug Chef says that fried tarantula is one of his tastiest dishes. You just have to remember to singe off all their little hairs before battering and frying them.
Click here to watch a brief video of the event. The reactions on the faces of our customers as they eat the bug dishes are priceless.

Oh Japan, you’ve done it again. Perhaps the only thing better than eating yummy slices of toast is eating toast shaped like an adorable teddy bear that cheerfully sits up to greet you right before you devour it.
Called the Ernest Bread Pop Up!, this delightful product is the work of Japanese company Tokyu Hands. It even comes with three interchangable facial expressions so you can customize your scrummy toast bear before you send him to your belly.
There’s no question that a stack of fresh pancakes is awesome, but what about one giant fluffy pancake? Today we learned mixing a batch of pancake batter in the bowl of a rice cooker and then cooking it, just like you would when making a batch of rice, creates one great big floofy pancake that instantly reminds us of Totoro’s belly.
What’s more, just like regular pancakes, you can add all sorts of things to the batter, such as cocoa powder or pieces of fruit and chocolate, to further enhance your adorably plump tototorcake.
Head over to RocketNews24 for complete instructions as well as some helpful tips and suggestions.
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) is always striving to come up with bigger, crazier and all around awesome ways to prepare food. One thing he’s always wanted to do is make gargantuan deviled eggs using ostrich eggs.
It took a bit of effort to track down the eggs, but he succeed and then the fun began. Nick had to boil the eggs for two hours in order to cook them completely. Then he had to use a hammer to crack open their impressively thick shells.
This awesome tiger pancake was recently shared by Imgur user SoNorthTheSunDoesntShine. We don’t know who is actually responsible for creating this edible masterpiece (if you do please let us know), but we’re glad they took the time to document their process with a few additional photos. Now we can each make our own yummy tigercakes too.
Nathan’s son Gryphon thought they should include a Jabba the Hutt pancake with the slug-cakes, since he’s pretty slug-like himself, which we think was a pretty awesome suggestion.
Of course, the perfect ending to any slug-shaped meal is a Banana Slug Sucker for dessert.
"Nothing says “good morning” like a plateful of delicious tentacles."
Every time we think pancake artist Nathan Shields (previously featured here) has outdone himself, he goes and creates a scrummy new batch of pancakes that are even more awesome than the last. This time he’s made our jaws drop (and stomachs growl) with a mouthwatering batch of tentacular Cephalopod pancakes.
If you’ve been looking for a way to combine your love of Super Mario Bros., burgers and bacon (and why wouldn’t you?), we’d like to suggest whipping up a batch these delightfully delectable Koopa Troopa Bacon Turtle Burgers.
Oakland, CA-based Instructables contributor Canida got the idea to create such geektastic burgers after seeing recipes for turtle-shaped bacon burgers that were sadly bereft of gaming references. Turning the burgers into pesky but yummy Koopa Troopas made them into awesome edibles. All you need is ground beef, bacon, hot dogs, hamburger buns and some food coloring.
German design studio Korefe created the world’s first completely edible cookbook. Designed as a limited edition series for the art and culinary publishing company Gerstenberg Publishing House, The Real Cookbook is an edible instruction manual made of 100% fresh pasta with a classic lasagna recipe embossed on its pages. The Real Cookbook can be opened, read, and then each page used as a layer for making the very same lasagna described on those pasta pages.
