Bill Smith paints the outline of the face and hair with a thin squeeze bottle filled with batter.

Continuing the outline, he lets the lines cook slightly so they become the darkest part of the pancake.

He fills in the remaining gaps with a final ladle of batter.

Cook pancake until golden; flip and serve.
