Mix dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda) together in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (buttermilk, beaten eggs, butter).
Add the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and stir only until combined--don't overmix.
Griddle at 400 degrees--heat before cooking pancakes.
To assemble the reindeer...
Lay one larger pancake on the plate, and then place one of the smaller pancakes on top, toward the bottom of the larger one. Add dollops of whipped cream for the eyes and the nose, then put the berries on top—blueberries for the eyes, and a strawberry for the nose. Break the bacon into pieces, and use two for each antler, angling them outward.
