So if you look up pancakes on Wikipedia, it’ll say
A pancake is a flat cake, often thin, and round, prepared from a starch-based batter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan.
Seems pretty normal until you get to the whole pancakes should be round part. Fortunately someone forgot to inform Nathan Shields. His creations are a great little find. From pancakes made to look like Cephalopods to Zach Galifianakis pancakes, each of them are great. Make sure to check out his website and you won’t be bored. If you’re feeling generous visit his commissions page and donate $100 and get your own creation (plus the $100 goes for a good cause)
