    Loopyloop: if you don't mind me asking, what did you use to swirl with? I've been using a metal hanger and get really thin swirling. I much prefer the thicker lines like yours.

    ...a metal hanger. But with a thicker electric cable taped to the bottom. I very much doubt a thin wire would produce anything remarkable, you see... I'll post a picture of it when I get home later, promise. Very humble device.

    Thank you... Bit surprised, but did make sure I read all about it beforehand. Think the consistency of batter was just right, luckily.

    the one on the furthest left looks ghost like!! Love it! Did my first hanger swirl a couple days ago. I used corner of a thick plastic hanger and made a few swipes through it

    What was the consistency of your batter?
