It’s Shrove Tuesday and for many of us that means Pancake Day. Get your frying pan at the ready!

These tasty sweet treats don’t have to be eaten just once a year – Pancake Tower’s are becoming an increasingly popular trend at weddings.

 

So if you flipping love pancakes, or maybe Shrove Tuesday holds a special meaning or memory to you and your hubby-to-be, or if you are tying the knot on Shrove Tuesday next year, why not pile these pretties high in a Pancake Tower as an alternative to a traditional wedding cake or as a different dessert idea?

 

A tower works equally well with the thin crepe-style pancakes we know and love in the UK as it does with the thicker breakfast-style pancakes we all enjoy in the US. Adorn your tower cake with fresh fruit or flowers, dowse in sugar or syrup, or set up a pancake station where guests can choose their own toppings.

From parma ham and asparagus pancakes to attempting your own pancake tower (Jamie Oliver styley), serving up these pancakes with a twist is a sure-fire way to impress.
