|Not a backwards Sigma--This looked like an "M" to me (and the computer) right up until I uploaded it here...|
Basically, you pipe out the shape of your letter, then go over the whole area of your pancake. The first batter down has a chance to cook a bit more, seperately from the rest, so it stays a distinct part of the whole. Over the course of the week, I worked with several different letters. I'd like to try a traditional three-letter monogram, but the pancake pen just makes letters too big. I may have to try using a cake decorating bag and smaller tip to try that!
