I do Disney.. Do you?

Other than the fun experiences I've had at Disney World (Orlando, Florida) in several stages of my life; I can't say I've got personal favourites when it comes to all things Disney.

You see... I've always been a Pixar fan.. most of the younger TV days were always tuned into Cartoon Network.. and I remember how I never really understood what Donald duck went on about. Haha OKayy.. so Disney made a couple cool childhood memories too.. Like PEter PAN!! little mermaid was pretty awesome; beauty and the beast was good....Aladdin.. mmm... but stuff like sleeping beauty? Hannah Montana?... seriously?.. no. *snicker*
Well it's safe to say, at this point of my life.. I am not exactly standing in line to see the first screening of Toy Story 3.. or going nuts over a Disney princess Tshirt and well.. reason being; I just am not into fairy tales as I used to be. Of course cartoons and fantasy is heaps of fun.. and everyone would be lying to say there isn't a child in all of us who would smile from cuddling a fluffy plush Winnie the Pooh doll.

Making these cakes are pretty nostalgic for me.. Not so much the new age stuff like Dibo the dinosaur and Animal Mechanical from Playhouse Disney; but more of the Mickey themed characters.

I always remember Mickey's voice to be so distinct; I used to think ... wow, that's what a Mouse would sound like if it spoke. Hahahahah silly 5 year old su.
A fair number of mom's come in here knowing exactly what their children want for their cake. Mickey and Friends! they like to say... I then continue with the question; How old is your girl/boy?.. 1. hahaha the cake is more for the Mommy than the baby wouldn't you think?
Can't deny how Disney has got themselves implanted permanently into many hearts and inner-childs in so many of us. Mmm i'm looking forward to more Disney cake requests to come! I'm just going to be better and better and makin em!

I'm 23 and still totally love all things Disney..

Also Pixar is fantastic as well.. definitely went crazy with the new Toy Story and all that as well.

It's nice to be able to watch them and feel like a kid again, even if it's just for a couple of hours :D

OH MY GOSH! I love disney and I'd have a cake like that for my own birthday let alone my little kiddies (not that I've any yet - but nieces and nephews abound). These are all so adorable!

the characters are really cute!! i just have one question..

do we need to pay disney royalties for recreating their characters on cakes?

i'm wondering if i will get into trouble for copyright infringment if i wana sell these on homebase assignments..

Always been a huge fan of your blog but have been lurking, so thought I'd try and comment now.

I'm nearly 30 and still ADORE Disney! Well, you're right not stuff like High School Musical and Hannah Montana. But I'm still one of the first in line for Toy Story 3! ;) Nearly went for a Little Mermaid wedding cake with you, but then decided simple seashells would be more...well, sane! :)
