Taste: 10- They were heavenly.

Mouthfeel/Consistency: 9- The pancakes were fluffy and the added crunch from the strawberry added a nice feel.

Smell: 10- The aroma was in the whole kitchen and we felt that was a good sign that the food smelled good.

Visual Appeal: 9- The icing dripping from the pancakes with strawberries surrounding them was nice to look at but our cinnamon roll swirl didn’t come out the way we planned.

Creativity: 8- Overall the cinnamon roll pancake was a different thought but they were just pancakes and we took that into consideration on the creativity factor.
