Dumbo

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 🎥

Dumbo was released on October 23, 1941 and is still one of the shortest and least expensive full length animated features that Disney has ever made. 🐘
