In Honor of National Pancake Day, We’re Resurrecting These Celebrity Pancakes Portraits
Back in 2011, a then 25-year old artist named Katharine Kalnes from LaGrange, IL created celebrity portraits using Batter Blaster, a ready-made pancake batter in a can that went out of business in 2012. According to an episode of the PBS web series Inventors, Batter Blaster was “undercapitalized for breaking into some key markets.”
“After a series of issues with a private equity firm left him without a manufacturer, Sean [O’Connor, Batter Blaster’s inventor] had to close Batter Blaster for good,” the video informed.
