Disney Food!

One of my favorite places in the world is Disneyland.  Unfortunately it has been a very long time since I've been, but it's okay because it makes every visit that much more memorable.  Another thing I love about the happiest place on earth are all the Mickey Mouse shaped food!  Inspired by all the Disney food, I decided to make a few Mickey (and Minnie!) miniatures.

I first started off making some Mickey beignets which you can get at Cafe Orleans.  I've never actually had the Mickey shaped beignet, but I did eat the ones sold in Downtown Disney which are drool-inducingly good.  After shaping the beignets, I textured it with some sandpaper and a toothbrush, added the "baked" effect with brown soft pastels, and then baked it.  Then to get the powdered sugar look, I dabbed on some white acrylic paint.  I made the little sauce cups and filled them with TLS and Fimo deko gel to represent the raspberry coulis and vanilla bean creme anglaise.

Next up was the giant Mickey waffle from Carnation Cafe on Disneyland's Main Street.  It's served with chicken-apple sausages, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, maple syrup, and a dollop of whipped cream!  Yumm... Who doesn't love breakfast? :)

Last but not least, I had to recreate the famous Mickey and Minnie Mouse candy apples!  I originally saw this on Bridget McCarty's Instagram account when she made them, and instantly I knew I wanted to try and make them too.  Bridget is an amazing and incredibly talented artist who works for Disney and I highly recommend that you follow her.  She also made a whole bunch of other adorable Disney food miniatures that you should check out.  Here are her links:

I used scrap clay for the filler since the candy apple will be coated with "chocolate"

I hope you enjoyed the Disney food because I had a lot of fun making them. :)
