Disney’s One Hundred and One Dalmatians debuted on January 25, 1961. Did you know that most of the spots on the dalmatians in the film feature hidden Mickey’s? Or that Xerox was used to duplicate the hundreds of dogs?

I decided to make a sugar cookie version of the puppies that are in the film, complete with little black spots! Then I decided to take each cookie and form it into cookie sandwiches with a cookies and cream buttercream filling.

Sleeping Beauty premiered on January 29, 1959. It turns 60 years old this year!

Did you know that the fairies arguing over what color Aurora’s dress should be was actually based on a real disagreement that animators had?

I was lucky enough to see some of the concept art that Eyvind Earle, who served as one of the film’s concept artists, made for the film earlier this year at The Walt Disney Family Museum.

Did you know that Eyvind Earle also made the book that is seen at the beginning and end of the movie by hand? The book is made out of hammered brass with various jewels, and has been on display in various archives throughout the years. I chose to recreate this book, but in cake!

“Sweet princess, if through this wicked witch’s trick, a spindle should your finger prick… a ray of hope there still may be in this, the gift I give to thee. Not in death, but just in sleep, the fateful prophecy you’ll keep. And from this slumber you shall wake, when true love’s kiss, the spell shall break.” – Sleeping Beauty

Disney’s Lady and the Tramp was released in theaters on June 22, 1955, and audiences were introduced to Lady, Tramp, and one of the most iconic Disney scenes of all time. 🍝

Did you know that the opening scene where Jim Dear puts Lady in a hat box to give to Darling was based on something that Walt had done for his wife, Lillian?

I chose to bring this classic movie to life with a little inspiration from it’s most iconic Bella Notte scene. I made a plate of spaghetti just like in the movie…except in pie form, raspberry pie that is.
