Pumpkin / buttermilk pancake with apples

To wean my dependence on Nutella for creating contrast, I chose pumpkin pancake mix to create the darker areas.

Armed with two full squirt bottles, the outline of Dracula was drawn first and the rest was filled in with instant buttermilk batter.

Teeth, blood and eyes were carved from a Red Delicious apple.

Tips: Pumpkin batter is clumpy in comparison and clots in the bottle, so contrary to the photo above, I would recommend a larger tip opening to avoid blowouts (just cut with scissors).
