I am a girl who got into My Little Pony Friendship is Magic 4 years ago. And I've finally decided to try and write fanfics, so...yeah. That's about it. If you ever want to talk feel free to PM me.

After Luna's terrible pancakes, Celestia is determined to teach her sister how to cook. However, she drastically underestimates how difficult that will be. At least the ensuing chaos isn't all bad in the end.

Funny and sweet! Haven't read this sort of Royal Sisters fic in far too long. Could really feel the sisterly love throughout, especially when things got messy. I don't think I've ever seen an adult make a mess of a kitchen like that before, though my roommate has come close.

Thanks! I got the idea from when a friend sent me a picture of how she had somehow gotten waffle batter to ooze all over when using one of those waffle makers that flips around. I remembered the end of the Royal Sisters episode from Season 7, and I couldn’t get the idea out of my head. Glad you liked it!:pinkiehappy:

8700800 Yeah, my mom has one of those, and it oozes no matter how careful you are with it. A bit messy, but worth it.

8700818
She told me she filled it too much because she was trying to do a layer of fruit in the middle, so it kind of looked like it had exploded. I’ve never used one, but from what you’re saying, I don’t think I’d want to.

8700825 That would certainly amplify the mess ... if you want fruit, just put the fruit on top. And that level of mess is not normal ... normal is a few ounces of batter on the counter that you can easily wipe up.

8700833
She’s into experimenting with fancy cooking stuff, so that’s probably why she wanted to layer it. And yeah, the mess she had was all over the counter, and on both sides of the waffle maker itself.

8700837 I see ... hopefully the clean-up was easier than it looked. Still, experimenting often does get messy until you work out all the bugs, even when you do make something awesome - which fruit-filled waffles do sound, especially if raspberries are involved.

8700859
Not sure about that, she never mentioned any problems, so I assume it was okay. And I think she was using blueberries that time, but I agree about the raspberries.

8700861 Oooh ... blueberries sound good too! Or apple slices, especially if you mixed some cinnamon in the batter. :ajsmug: Dang it, now I'm hungry! :rainbowwild: And the nice thing about a lot of newer waffle irons and the like is that you can detach the cord and run 'em through the dishwasher.

8700872
:rainbowlaugh: Not as fond of apples myself, but that still wouldn’t be bad. And that does sound nice, maybe she had one like that which certainly would’ve made it way easier to get all the batter off.

8700886 Yeah, it really is ... and I think they're moving towards standardized cords, even. And yeah, we all have different tastes, but once you figure out the technique, you can use just about anything.

8700926
I don't cook much anymore, but I'm sure my friend will tell me once she makes one that turns out well.

8700930 makes sense. And if your friend is local, she might even make you one to order some time.

8700935
Yeah, we live about 10 minutes away from each other, so she could definitely do that. :pinkiesmile:

8700938 Awesome ... it's good to have good friends that close by.

8700942
Yeah, it's nice to just be able to go over and see her pretty much anytime.

This is actually a really sweet story. Could use a little less of the excessive dumb from Luna. She can learn. But the ending was super sweet, and kinda makes up for it.

"I was unaware that they came already mixed. I tried to make my own batter out of flour, eggs, milk, and baking soda."

It's not actually that hard. If you follow a recipe. Which she probably didn't do.

Thanks for the feedback. I would disagree on Luna’s dumbness in this story since it is first time being taught how to cook in over a thousand years. However, yes, she can learn, and I would have that show up in a story that would be a follow up kind of thing.

8701586
Seeing as I don’t know how to make pancakes myself, that list of ingredients was just a random couple things that I thought might’ve made some sense in pancakes.

8701716

You got most of them right. Except I use sunflower oil and baking powder instead of baking soda.

8701737
Wow, I’m surprised I was even close at all. I didn’t know the difference between baking powder and baking soda, so I just picked the first one I thought of while writing. :twilightsheepish:

Sweet'n fun

i like these stories where there is just random guards they are the best. And making pancakes was a great thing to write about 9/10 story :yay:

8704160
I only chose pancakes because that was what was in the actual show. Otherwise I probably would’ve chosen something else that I actually know how to make. :twilightsheepish:

But I’m glad you enjoyed it!:pinkiesmile:

......this makes me feel so lucky CAN i can cook a little bit

8706574
:rainbowlaugh: Well, lucky was not a reaction I would've ever expected!

8706611
i ment I CAN COOK A LITTLE BIT XD

8706638
Oh, okay, that makes way more sense:ajsmug:

This has been a nice, short and sweet read to start the morning :trollestia: It managed to bring a smile to my lips many times and the ending is just great. Thank you for that!

PS: The only thing I found a little strange is that the Royal Kitchen has pre-boxed pancake mix. That stuff is usually not of the highest quality and one would expect the royal chefs to be able to make pancakes from the ground up... or maybe they have a really low budget :rainbowlaugh:

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it!:twilightsmile:

My use of the "Royal Kitchen" was meant to denote that it was only to be used for the meals of the two sisters and any guests (such as Twilight and her friends, or Starlight). Therefore, since Celestia makes pancakes every morning, the boxed mix is there for her to use. Because yes, I definitely agree that the chefs should know how to make pancakes without predone mix.:rainbowlaugh:

You’re welcome! :pinkiesmile:

And I see. That indeed makes a lot of sense :rainbowlaugh:
