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.

“Side by side with your loved one. You’ll find enchantment here. The night will weave its magic spell. When the one you love is near.”- Lady and the Tramp

Did you know that this was not the first time that Walt had worked on this story? He created the Alice Comedies in the 1920’s, which featured a live-action Alice that was incorporated into a cartoon world. He even considered modeling Alice in Wonderland after this same sort of style, but ultimately decided not to.

I took these pictures at The Walt Disney Family Museum, and they show a glimpse of what the Alice Comedies were like.

For this version of #marisabakesdisney, I wanted to focus on one of my favorite parts of the movie. I have always loved when Alice comes across the two different bowls of beautiful cookies, eats one, and immediately changes in size, so I decided to replicate both sets of cookies from the movie.

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” – Alice in Wonderland

Cinderella debuted on February 15, 1950, and Disney’s version of the classic story immediately became a huge hit.

Did you know that the animation sequence in which Cinderella transforms from her torn dress into her beautiful ball gown was Walt’s all time favorite piece of animation? ✨

I decided to bring this classic to life with a vanilla cake layered with Swiss meringue buttercream and covered in sugar sprinkles. I hand cut cookie letters to match the same font as the title sequence at the beginning of the film. I even made an edible glass slipper to go with it!

“And yet, through it all, Cinderella remained ever gentle and kind, for with each dawn she found new hope that someday her dreams of happiness would come true.” –Cinderella
