Pancakes are such a popular breakfast option for families because it’s SO fun to make creative shapes and designs with pancake batter! What’s not so fun, is trying to make those creative shapes and designs without making a massive mess of your kitchen with drops of pancake batter everywhere, let alone the blobs you’ve likely created with the intention of making a cute little pancake heart. Lets face it, it’s not even that easy to make perfectly proportional round pancakes!

This hack likely originated from a loving parent who got sick of trying to spell their child’s name in pancake batter, and by taking an old ketchup bottle, cleaning it, and keeping for this exact use, stumbled upon pure genius. What use is that exactly? A pancake batter dispenser! Oooh the possibilities! In no time you’ll be watching YouTube videos on how to make epic designs like Yoda or the entire cast of Frozen and become the talk of the playground at school when your children brag about your pancake skills. You’re flipping amazing!
