If you've never had the privilege of biting into the warm, airy cloud that is a Japanese pancake, you should envy those who have. That light, dainty batter that elicits the perfect wobble shows just how delicate yet delicious these creations can be.

At Cauldron Ice Cream in southern California, the popular Japanese pancakes are being used as the base for ice cream sandwiches. Called the Fluffypuff, they make the pancakes in-house before adding in the liquid nitrogen ice cream flavor of your choice. Somehow, slicing into those pancakes doesn't destroy the delicate network within, so you still get that fluffy experience.
