Bambi

Bambi premiered on August 13, 1942, and was Disney’s first animated movie to not feature any humans. It was also Walt’s favorite movie!

Did you know that Bambi was originally scheduled to be Disney’s second movie released? However, the level of research that went into making the animals seem realistic postponed its release until 1942. In order to help the animators master the characteristics and features of the different animals in the film, Walt brought a variety of animals to temporarily live on the studio lot, including two fawns.

I made a chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream, a salted caramel drizzle, and a chocolate deer design to commemorate the film. I was so inspired by the beautiful scenery throughout the film, that I couldn’t help but incorporate a bit of that too ๐ŸŒผ
