Ugly Pancake Contest

One ugly pancake from N. Shields at Saipancakes.

Now here’s a contest you can sink your teeth into. You have until Saturday, May 19th to enter the Ugly Pancake Contest from N. Shields at Saipancakes.

(Plus it is called an ugly pancake contest, after all.) Check out some of his decidedly non-ugly pancake variations like the ones below. Pancake art is alive and well.
