People stuck at home have been sharing their culinary creations on TikTok.
The social-media platform allows posters to share one-minute videos of what's going on in their kitchens.
From teeny tiny pancake cereal to White Claw slushies, TikTok foodies have proven themselves to be a creative bunch.
Pancake cereal became a TikTok phenomenon.
People started to make miniature pancakes and loaded them into a bowl instead of stacking them on a plate. And thus, pancake cereal was born.
At the time of writing, the #pancakecereal hashtag had generated more than 800.8 million views on TikTok.
All you need to make the bowl of miniature pancakes is some batter and something to squeeze it out of.
Melanie Locke posted a video to TikTok showing viewers how she created her own squeeze container: She filled a water bottle with pancake batter and poked a hole in the cap.

An at-home version of Cookie Crisp cereal has also swept across TikTok feeds.
Justin Schuble, the person behind the Instagram account @dcfoodporn, posted a video of his cookie cereal creation on TikTok.
Insider reporter Anneta Konstantinides spoke with Schuble about how he executed the trend.
Pre-made cookie dough and a bit of milk are the only two ingredients for cookie cereal.
Make small cookies by cutting pre-made cookie dough into small and flat pieces. Schuble told Insider that a key step is to let the cookies sit out for a few minutes after pulling them out of the oven so that they can harden and become crispy.
Insider's Anneta Konstantinides tested out cookie cereal, and said it tasted even better than Cookie Crisp.
After tiny pancakes and cookies took over TikTok, people got even more creative with the miniature-food trend.
Food bloggers continued to find new and exciting ways to turn food into cereal, shrinking everything from doughnuts and muffins to pizza bagels and bacon.
Shay and Steph, of @soflofooodie, told Insider they wanted to create something their fans weren't seeing anywhere else on social media.
"We decided to turn it into a whole mini breakfast with toast and bacon," they said. "There's something about mini food that catches people's eyes, including ours. So why not have fun with it?"
White Claw Slushies are an easy boozy beverage trend on TikTok.
TikTokers started dressing up their White Claw seltzers with fruit and ice, because why not?
The only requirements for making this frozen treat are White Claw hard seltzer and fruit.
While some people have added extra alcohol like vodka to their slushies, all you really need is a White Claw and some frozen fruit.
As temperatures started heating up, people on TikTok turned cold grapes into a sweet treat that they said tasted just like Sour Patch Kids.
TikTok users claimed you could make grapes taste just like the beloved candy by squeezing lime juice over them.
It appears that the first viral video of the clever hack was posted by skincare blogger Mia Wilson, who told Insider that she got the idea from Reddit.
"I tried it and loved it," she said. "I was addicted to candy and Sour Patch were my favorite. I love that these are a healthier alternative with a pretty similar taste."
Insider reporter Anneta Konstantinides tested out the hack and deemed it a success.
After trying a couple of different versions of the hack, she deemed that freezing the grapes for a few hours before adding the lime juice worked best.
This version of vegan "bacon" has also popped up on TikTok.
Turning carrots into a vegan-version of a meat product isn't necessarily a new idea, but this vegan bacon found some viral success on TikTok.
Tabitha Brown shared her recipe for carrot bacon which includes maple syrup, garlic powder, onion powder, liquid smoke, and smoked paprika.
Dalgona coffee was an early quarantine trend.
The name dalgona coffee came from a popular South Korean snack of toffee.
As more people stayed home and played around in their kitchen, the whipped-coffee topping became a massive trend on TikTok.
At the time of writing, the #dalgonacoffee hashtag had more than 300.9 million views on the platform.
The popularity of dalgona coffee led to the creation of other whipped drinks.
After dalgona coffee took off, TikTokers got more creative with whipped drinks.
Concoctions like whipped cocoa, matcha, Nutella, and more started to pop up all over social media.
Another drink that made the rounds was hot chocolate made with cocoa bombs.
TikTok users started sharing videos of the store-bought chocolate spheres filled with marshmallows and hot cocoa mix. Naturally, people started to make their own at home afterward.
Cloud bread filled our feeds with colorful creations that looked like they were straight out of a cartoon.
Abigail Hwang-Nable, of @abimhn, told Insider that she made cloud bread after she saw @linqanaaa's video and was "intrigued by its fluffiness and simplicity."
But Hwang-Nable made a few tweaks to the recipe, adding blue food coloring to the mix.
Her blue cloud bread became a sensation on TikTok, racking up more than 30 million views.
