IHOPs Cinn-A-Stack pancakes should be BANNED they are so darn good. The cinnamony, syrupy goodness with the cream chees icing is sinful--LOVE THEM! So today while I gold leaf my way into a coma, I may stop and make some.
By the way, Jones Tones glue makes great raised layers and is fantastic for use with gold leaf and foils. I also love Aquasize and Mona Lisa foil and leaf glue. Embellishing my paintings can sometimes take almost as much time as it does to paint them. Its a long and detailed process--which kills my back---so I think I deserve some cinnamony goodness today!
