A love of baking and Disney movies combined? What’s better than that? Join me as I bake my way through one Disney movie at a time! Follow along at #marisabakesdisney 🎥
Once upon a time in the early 1930’s, Walt Disney and his team of animators set out to make their first full length animated feature: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This movie quickly became a classic after it debuted on December 21, 1937, and with its charming story, beautiful scenery, and abundance of adorable woodland creatures, it’s not hard to see why!
It’s amazing to read about the process that Walt and the other animators went through to make the movie possible, especially because it led to every other Disney movie that we have today.
For example, did you know that Walt acted out the entire story to persuade his animators that this was the film they needed to make first? Or that it was the women working in the Ink and Paint Department that took it upon themselves to make Snow White more human-like and added their own make up blush to her cheeks? I took these photos while at The Walt Disney Family Museum, one of my all time favorite museums, and it was there that I learned a lot more about the making of the film.
With a movie known for it’s infamous poison apple, it only made sense to bake an apple pie of my own, but I wanted this apple pie to be different from any other pie I had baked before… 🍎
The Evil Queen still gives me the chills when I watch the movie today. Her determination to be the fairest in the land will really stop at nothing, and it is that poison apple that serves as the turning point in the film. So what better way to adorn the apple pie than with that very poison apple? I just wish that I had woodland creatures to help me make it! 🐿
