Even if this recipe is a bit beyond your skill level, this is still such a fun video to watch! As a fan of baking (although a recipe like THIS is far out of my league) I love to watch creative, impressive desserts like this get created. It’s incredible to see the step-by-step process which eventual leads to this incredible end result.

It’s pretty hypnotizing to watch, honestly!

One thing we really love is how organic this process was. Because not all pancakes are perfectly round and not all pads of butter are perfectly square, to actually make this look like a REAL stack of pancakes, this baking processes couldn’t be too perfect.

Usually when it comes to these high-end cake designs, everything is perfect; every line is perfectly straight and every hue is 100% on point. So it was very refreshing to see this cool, realistic cake design that required some sense of realism!
