Peter Pan

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 🎥

Disney’s Peter Pan, an adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s original play, flew into theaters on February 5, 1953, and was instantly a big hit. Did you know that Walt first grew fond of the story when he saw the play as a child? Or that one of the biggest challenges that animators faced when working on the film was learning how to animate a character to look like they were flying?

I made a colorful funfetti cake and decorated it with a Swiss meringue buttercream because what other cake says “never grow up” more? I topped it with the silhouettes of Peter Pan, Wendy, James, and Michael as they fly towards the second star to the right and straight on till morning.

“All this has happened before, and it will all happen again. But this time it happened in London. It happened on a quiet street in Bloomsbury. That corner house over there is the home of the Darling family. And Peter Pan chose this particular house because there were people here who believed in him.” – Peter Pan
