RECIPE: Knock Her Socks Off with Fairy Floss Pancakes For Mother’s Day

Let’s be honest, we’d be happy with any ol’ pancake situation on Mother’s Day, right? Heck yes. That was my sentiment too until I saw this unicorn-esque, pile ’em high and make ’em pink stack of pancake goodness. And now I won’t settle for anything less. And a note to my kids: don’t forget the fairy floss. I will notice.

If you’re wondering where exactly to buy fairy floss, don’t despair, I’ve hooked you up. Head to your local Woolworths or Big W store and you should find it right there in the confectionery aisle. #yourewelcome

If I haven’t said it yet, and in case I haven’t made it clear, pink ombre pancakes are EVERYTHING. Especially on Mother’s Day (that’s Sunday 10th May for those of you playing along at home who don’t quite remember!) 😉

Prep time: 10 minutes

  5. Stack the coloured pancakes, lightest to darkest, on each plate.
