11 people who failed at Pancake Tuesday

Pancakes. Deliciously tricky to master.

GOD BE WITH the days when a simple, traditional pancake with sugar and lemon juice was enough on Pancake Tuesday. Nowadays, if it doesn’t have at least three toppings and come in a variety of impossible shapes, we don’t want to hear about it.

But as you’re making your fancy pancakes, please keep these poor souls in mind. They tried to be creative with their offerings, and failed utterly.

2. This pancake, which was supposed to be in the shape of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle
