Pimp My Pancake – Valentine’s Style!

Our Pimp My Pancake competition is something we’ve looked forward to doing every year since we launched it in 2015.

This year, it just so happens that Shrove Tuesday is on 13th February – the day before Valentine’s Day. So this Mardi Gras, we want to see your best Valentine’s-themed pancakes for a chance to win your very own crêpe maker!

We’ve had some impressive entries in the past, including edible portraits of the Mona Lisa and David Bowie, a Shooting Star-themed pancake and last year’s winner – an edible Mr Potato Head from Disney Pixar’s Toy Story!

If you think you can ‘beat’ the rest of the competition with your own ‘flipping’ marvellous pancake, then we want to hear from you.

Submit your entries by sharing a photo or video of your pancake on Twitter (@ShootingStarPR), Instagram (@weareshootingstar) or on the Shooting Star Facebook page proudly exclaiming: “This is how I #PimpMyPancake”.

Enter before 5pm on Friday 16th February 2018 to be in with a chance of winning a crêpe maker. 

The lucky winner will be announced on Monday 19th February 2018.

We can’t wait to see what this year’s competition has in store – good luck and happy crêpe-ing!
