Upon first glance, Daniel Drake's colorful, cartoony creations look like amazing 2-D illustrations, paintings, or enlarged versions of those Shrinky Dinks we loved as kids...beautiful and definitely inedible.

But these are no ordinary portraits — these are pancake portraits. Yes, faces crafted with dyed pancake batter, calculated flicks of the wrist, and incredible timing. There's a reason Drake goes by the name Dr. Dan: he has the hands of a surgeon.

Drake has pancakeified the mugs of celebrities like The Beatles, Al Roker, and Rachael Ray, and a slew of our fave animated characters. Looking for a rad gift idea? The breakfast boss is happy to whip up personalized portraits for you and your loved ones. Just be sure to take a photo before you douse your likeness in syrup and take a bite.
