T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: Have Your (Disney) Cake And Eat It Too!

Now that I’m a mom, my inspiration for most things usually starts from something related to my son – in this case, I happened to see some birthday parties for little ones on Facebook, and not only were they all super amazing and perfectly themed, but they all had adorable cakes and cupcakes too – and it got me to thinking about ideas for my baby’s first birthday (which is many months away, but hey planning ahead is good right?) – and as far as I’m concerned, the CAKE is one of the most important parts of any party! Check out these awesome Disney themed cakes:

  Cake UP

The movie UP is such a great love story – and a cake like this would be a perfect wedding cake, don’t you think? What a way to start out your greatest adventure yet!

Cake Smash

A baby’s first birthday party wouldn’t be complete without a smash cake would it? Something simple and not too intricate like this one would be perfect (after all, it’s just going to wind up all over their hands – and face, hair, feet, probably the floor and walls and…well, you get the idea)

Cake Princess

I love this Princess cake – subtly celebrating some of Disney’s most beloved characters and movies! I also enjoy that it’s not over the top frilly or glittery or extra girly – its classy and fit for royalty!

Cake Shower

And of course – I HAVE to mention the cupcakes my mother in law made for my own amazing baby shower (yeah, those are brownie Mickeys in them – aren’t they amazing?!)

Ok – so let’s be real here – not everyone is as crafty as my mother in law (like me, for example…), but luckily, most grocery store bakeries have the ability to add some Disney magic to their sheet cakes – with designs like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Pooh and Friends, and yes – even Frozen – this means everyone can enjoy some Disney cake on their Birthday!

Ok – now I really want cake. That’s acceptable for breakfast right?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Warm Up With A Smile With These Disney Mugs!

WILL THIS COLD NEVER END!!! I would give anything to be at Disney World right now – not only because it’s the happiest place on earth, but because it’s a heck of a lot warmer than Upstate New York this time of year! Alas, I am stuck here, so to cheer myself up, I think I will grab a warm beverage (coffee if it’s the morning time, or cocoa in the evening perhaps?) in a DISNEY MUG:

 Mugs Pixar

Could these Pixar mugs be any cuter? I especially love Nemo

Mugs DIsney Store 1

Find these and other drinkware at the Disney Store’s website

Mugs PrincessMug

I kick myself for not buying this – look at how big it is, I could really use that to wrap my hands around right about now!

COASTER finished

I did buy this one though – I love the vintage collage-y feel to it! Oh – and if you want to make your own Disney coasters like the ones pictured, then check out the DIY here

You can buy Disney branded coffee and tea at the Disney Parks – I always pick some up (and then am always wishing I had gotten more when I run out!), and they really are the perfect treat to enjoy in your favorite Disney mug. Just keep on sipping and hoping for spring…

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Cheers!

There’s no better time to celebrate life, family and love than when you’re enjoying an amazing vacation. Personally, I would vacation at Walt Disney World every year if I could, and even though many people think Walt Disney World is mainly a place for kids/families, they do cater to the adult crowd – by offering amazing food and plenty of choice drinks too! Check out some of these awesome drinks you’ll find around Walt Disney World:

  DrinkMargarita

Lime Raspberry Margarita – pair this with some chips and salsa at La Hacienda De San Angel in Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion

???????????????????????????????

These beers are made in house at Big River Grille & Brewing Works at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort – we have been a few times, and both my husband and father have enjoyed the assortment and getting to talk to the Brewmaster and ask him questions

DrinkCiderDark

Over in Epcot’s United Kingdom, you’ll find the Rose and Crown Pub – home to this drink – Strongbow Cider with a shot of Crème de Cassis, the “Cider and Dark”

DrinkJiko

Wine fans will want to check out the extensive collection of South African wines found at Jiko – the Cooking Place – which is an amazingly innovative restaurant over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

Cheers – and TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Not Your Ordinary Cupcake!

I LOVE SWEETS. It’s a fact. I love candy, sugar, and I love to bake too – I love it so much I evenBlog about it!. So it’s no surprise that when it comes to eating at Walt Disney World, I tend to gravitate towards the desserts! Lucky for me – there are PLENTY to choose from, and one of the categories in which I have performed some thorough taste testing is their cupcakes – and I can assure you they excel at these from every aspect – taste, appearance, variety, size (a huge cupcake is better than a small one, no?) – these things SERIOUSLY rock. Check out some of my faves:

 DSCN0947

The Infamous Butterfinger Cupcake – these things are HUGE – moist chocolate cake filled with a fudgey surprise, and topped with what can only be described as a MOUNTAIN of buttercream frosting, which is then coated in a layer of chocolate and crushed Butterfingers. You can find them at Starring Roles at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and you can get the recipe Here – why not recreate DSCN3651

The Oreo Bon Bon cupcake is available at the Boardwalk Bakery at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort – and it’s pretty unassuming at first glance. White cake, white frosting, cute oreo Mickey ears. But it’s what’s inside that counts – a cookies and cream mousse is tucked away in there, and that’s what makes this one an extra special treat – yum!

IMG_0287

This Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcake combines the moist red velvet cake with that tang of cheesecake – it’s a great combo, and while I don’t really understand why there are toffee bits on the outside, I must say I don’t hate it!

ChocPB

Chocolate cake that’s filled and topped with deliciously gooey chocolate peanut butter frosting, and then those giant chocolate shavings that give it such a unique look – who could say no to this? I know I can’t…

Hopefully next time you’re in WDW you will take some time to enjoy one (or all) of these super sweet treats!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – HAPPY BIRTHDAY To The World’s BEST Husband!

Today is a very special day for my family – it’s my husband’s 28th birthday! WOO HOO! I am so excited to get to celebrate another birthday with him, it’s always fun to spoil him and treat him like a king – after all, he is the best husband/father/friend/person ever!

Seriously though, he is an amazing person inside and out – he’s kind and caring, funny, smart, and he is the most amazing dad to our beautiful 3 month old son and our 2 year old dog!

Abday walter

Abday John

 

Another reason why he is so great is that he not only puts up with my Disney addiction – but he actually likes Disney too! We have gone several times together, and had so much fun!

I love getting to travel to my absolute favorite place and making memories with my absolute favorite guy! He’s the perfect travel companion – always up for anything and willing to walk around the Parks all day with me – going on rides and shopping and eating (one of his fave things to do at Disney) and seeing shows – we do it all, and I am so glad I have him to do it with

A Big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to him, and to everyone else – Happy Friday (and TGIF!)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Christmas Countdown Time!

So Halloween is over, the candy has been eaten (well its all gone in my house at least!), and if you’ve been to any store in the past two weeks you’ll agree that the Christmas season is upon us (whether you like it or not!). Commercials, sales, merchandise – it’s all out and ready to help you celebrate! It may be a bit early to start Christmas shopping or listening to Christmas Carols, but it’s never too early to plan a trip to Walt Disney World at Christmastime! I HIGHLY recommend it – I personally have gone twice during the holiday season and its a great time for those who want to combine their love of Christmas with their love of Disney World (what, doesn’t everyone love those two things as much as I do?!)

Here are a few of the awesome things you can expect to experience when you visit WDW at Christmas:

xmas1

The FOOD – Holiday themed treats are around every corner – from peppermint fudge to snowman candy apples, and seasonal cupcakes and cookies too!

xmas2

Attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is one of the other things I recommend – it’s an extra ticket cost as it’s a special event, but it’s worth it – a special parade and character appearances, free cookies and cocoa, and that’s right, it even SNOWS on Main Street! What could be better?

xmas3

Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios you’ll find the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights – a display of millions of Christmas lights that is lit nightly, and the lights blink in tune to famous Christmas Carols. We went on Christmas Day to see this, and it was amazing – I couldn’t picture a better way to spend Christmas Day with my family!

xmas4

Are you a big fan of Gingerbread? Well then you’re in luck, as several of the Disney Resorts construct Gingerbread displays that are truly a sight to behold – as in this house is made entirely of actual baked gingerbread – pretty cool, right? Oh – and if you’re a fan of actually EATING gingerbread, then you’ll appreciate the fact that you can buy gingerbread “shingles” to take home too!

xmas5

Disney World is amazing all times of the year, but Christmas is when it really shines – literally! The lights, decor, giant decorated trees, songs, treats, and everything else all add up to an amazing holiday experience which I hope you are lucky enough to get to experience someday!

Oh and by the way – there are only 48 days until Christmas!

TGIF!
