Not only can the Taiyaki Japanese Fish-shaped pancake maker mold piping hot cakes in the shape of fine finned friends, it can mold piping hot cakes stuffed with custard, chocolate, or cheese! or filled with ice cream! in the shape of fine finned friends.
"Taiyaki" translates to "baked sea bream," which sounds horrible as a pancake, and even worse as a batter-based housing for Nutella. Luckily, "Taiyaki" translation-free just sounds cool and Japanese, and leaves no question in my mind that I would like to try the 3D fish its aluminum pan cooks up.
The handled pancake maker shown here has 2 fish-shaped molds, each measuring 5-3/4" x 6-1/4" x 7/8".
For those who refuse to eat fish - or anything that looks like one - you can satisfy your 3D breakfast craving with this Bubble Waffle Pan.
