I bought this not for my for adoration of pancakes, but to be more efficient in using my Babycakes Cake Pop Maker, Babycakes Mini Donut Maker, and Babycakes Mini Cupcake Maker). While browsing the reviews on the Babycakes website, a few reviewers suggested using the Pancake Pen to quickly fill the cake pop reservoirs. I am happy to announce that it works perfectly!!! I can fill the reservoirs faster, so that now all 12 cake pops (donuts or mini cupcakes) are finished at the same time.
I haven’t used the Pancake Pen for pancakes. I doubt you could be very accurate (due to the batter coming out kind of thick at 2/3 inch width), but I still think it would work well.
The silicone tip is resistant to heat, so no need to worry about it melting. It’s not hard to clean, but not easy either. I suggest using a baby bottle cleaner since the length of the Pancake Pen is about a foot.
I purchased mine on Amazon.com for less than $10. (You’ll have to pay shipping if you aren’t a Prime member or have a cart total of $25+.)
