It's no secret that I'm a Harry Potter dork but what I'm an even bigger dork over is Disney.
Main Street USA is my happy place. If I'm having a down day, you bet I'm watching some kind of Disney classic as a pick me up and if you see me singing along with a big stupid smile on my face while I drive, it's probably to some Disney tunes. Yep, that kind of level of dork. I just love it.
So I couldn't help but get inspired by some of my favorite Disney movies and make some desserts.
Anyone else getting major Snow White vibes here? Apples, witchy set up, dreamy flowers🍎🔮🌾 and the phillo crust in this mini apple pies are just as delicate as the heroine in Disney’s first full length feature.
Beauty and the Beast
🎶Try the grey stuff, it’s delicious! Don’t believe me, ask the dishes! 🎶
What better way to honor my all time favorite than with a grey stuff cupcake?
If you’re wondering what the grey stuff is, it’s just Oreos crushed into buttercream. 😋 That’s not the *official* recipe but I think it tastes way better than the official TBH.
Then to really fit the theme we have
📚 books that Belle loves (fun fact about me: I started to read for fun because I wanted to be just like Belle!)
☕️ Chip, which I bought a few years ago at Disney and drink out of whenever I need a pick me up since it always makes me smile.
🥀 the rose, of course! A gift from my maid of honor at my Disney themed bachelorette party a few years ago.
🗝 keys for locking Belle away (kind of weird how that seems to be a pattern now that I’m thinking about it 🤔)
🕯 and candlesticks in honor of Lumiere who gave us the iconic grey stuff line during Be Our Guest 🎶
These Tangled inspired donuts were actually made using a super easy vegan hack: some of those canned biscuits you can buy at any grocery store are accidentally vegan. Use a cookie cutter to cut out the middle and fry the dough instead of baking it and voila! You have vegan donuts! 🍩
I used purple and gold for the glaze to keep with the theme.
How many other elements from Tangled can you spot?
🍳 frying pan for deterring intruders ✅
🗝 keys for locking kidnapped princesses in a tower ✅
🕯lantern for the glimmering lights that fly on her birthday ✅
🌸🌷 flowers from the woods around the tower and that decorate Rapunzel’s hair✅
👸🏼 and of course purple and gold since those are the colors of the royal family’s crest
All of this *might* have been put together while singing along to “I’ve got a dream” 🤓
What Disney movie should I do next?
