Need beautiful foods for a breakfast or brunch – for a garden party or other early-day celebration? There are lots of edible bouquets that you can present, like a fruit bouquet and a cinnamon roll bouquet. Those look nice for a brunch or breakfast. You can also do something like break waffles into pieces, put them in canning jars, and embellish them with flavored syrups, candies, whip cream, and other goodies. But for a really gorgeous food, one that’s full of color and appeal, make rainbow pancakes. They almost look better than they taste!
I hope you’re sending the kids somewhere while you have your party because, if they see the rainbow pancakes, they’ll want you to make them every weekend. Of course, you probably wouldn’t mind that since they’re not really much harder to make than ordinary pancakes. Whether you’re using your own pancake recipe, or you’re using Aunt Jemima pancake mix, the rainbow flapjacks will be stunning. Mix up the pancakes and you’ll be almost finished creating the rainbow version for the special occasion. Check the recipe or box to see how much batter you’ll need and, after mixing it, separate it into as many bowls as you want. So, for each color that you want to make, you’ll need one bowl.
Mix food coloring into each bowl to create your choice of colors like blue, violet, red, orange, yellow, and green. Most food coloring has a chart for mixing other colors besides the standard four, of blue, yellow, red, and green. If yours doesn’t, though, you can easily find online information for mixing your own colors. Since a food coloring set usually features four main colors you’ll only have to mix one to three of your own – if any at all.
Although there are usually seven colors in a rainbow, seven pancakes in a stack is a bit much. Your choices include making the pancakes really small, making a limited number of colors, or making all seven colors, but not stacking them for the guests. Leave them on a warmer and guests can create their own colorful combinations. A pancake bar is actually a fantastic idea for a special occasion.
Serve the pancakes in a manner that you would serve other types. Offer ordinary syrup, flavored syrup, butter, whip cream, fruit, or other embellishments. If you want to serve the pancakes in jars, make small flapjacks, and then top them with selected goodies. Screw a lid onto each jar and tie a ribbon around it. The party favor is stunning with its layers of beautiful colors.
