T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Dole Whip Becomes A (Delicious) Cake

dole whip

There are some snacks at Walt Disney World that are just so iconic that they are not only “must-haves”, but they are the source of obsessions and dreams for many people (myself included sometimes – I admit it!). The Dole Whip is FOR SURE one of those – it’s a Disney snack that people line up for rain or shine, no matter how long the wait – it’s worth it. And if you’re at home and wishing for the perfect dole whip-inspired dessert, wish no more – as it is here. The Dole Whip Cake has arrived to make all your dreams come true:

There were actually quite a few steps to making the cake – there was the cake itself, the filling, and the frosting – both of which required stove time, fridge time, and then mixing too – but I would say overall it was worth it – the cake turned out moist and flavorful, and the frosting was rich and creamy. It was a winner with my big man and my little man:

…Ok so maybe this cake won’t actually make dreams come true, but it certainly can curb those “I miss Disney world” blues that you might experience post-trip, and it is also the absolutely perfect thing to bring along to that summer picnic you were invited to and had no idea what you were going to bring – dole whip cake is here to solve that dilemma! TGIF – and happy baking!

T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week – Mickey Shaped Foods Make Eating Fun!

I’ve talked before about Mickey Shaped Foods, and for those of you who haven’t tried anything in this iconic mouse shape, and are thinking “um what’s so great about Mickey shaped foods?” – it’s hard to explain. Just try them – they are adorable, and they taste better than regular shaped food (seriously, it’s true!)

The Mickey Bar – a chocolate covered vanilla ice cream treat on a stick. It’s classic, delicious, and perfect for anyone and everyone (but you better make quick work of it on a hot day!)

BigWaffle

Crispy on the outside, warm and soft and yeast-y on the inside (pauses to wipe up drool) – I don’t know of anyone who would turn down

Sharing CakePop

The ears of this Mickey cake pop are actually little marshmallows – isn’t that clever? The cake itself is dense and moist and delicious…hence the sharing that is bordering on a fight to see who will get the last bite…

Pretzel

Soft pretzels are such a great snack – and these Mickey shaped ones are big enough to share too (should you feel so inclined)

You can make your own Mickey Shaped foods at home too – with a Mickey Cookie Cutter, Mickey egg ring, or a Mickey waffle maker (I have all of these, of course – and I even have two Mickey waffle makers!)

TGIF!

Disney takes FULL advantage of every season and holiday – and autumn is no exception! Check out these awesome treats available at the Disney Parks this Pumpkin Season:

Pumpkin fudge – always a winner. You can find this on Main Street USA

Disney PSL

Now that Starbuck’s has invaded the Disney Parks, you can grab your Pumpkin Spice Latte in the signature Disney parks starbucks cup!

PumpkinCandyApples

Ok – these don’t actually taste like pumpkin – but aren’t these candy apples adorable? Too cute too eat (well – almost anyway…)

pumpkin-beignets

Disneyland has the market cornered on these babies – Mickey shaped pumpkin beignets, served with a rich vanilla bean dipping sauce

PumpkinMugs

And if you can’t make it to Disney to check out all the fall fun – then check out these awesome mugs and other Halloween Merchandise available from the Disney Store. And if you’re feeling hungry and in the mood to bake – check out my baking blog for some more Pumpkin Fun

SHARING is CARING! (…Sharing WDW FOOD that is)

The cost of a Walt Disney World vacation is something I have discussed here before, as it tends to be on the expensive side. There are a lot of ways you can save money on your WDW vacation, and one of them is by doing something that’s taught in preschools all over the world – SHARING! By sharing your Disney meals/snacks with your party, you can save a lot of money!

Disney food is amazing, it’s delicious, always freshly prepared, and the portions also tend to be on the large side – which can be a huge plus for those of you looking to save some $$$ on quick service meals and snacks. Here are some suggestions on items you can share/split:

 BountyPlate Breakfast: Most WDW Resort counter service locations offer a “breakfast platter” or a “bounty platter”, which comes with eggs, meat (bacon/sausage, or in some cases ham), breakfast potatoes, and a biscuit/roll/pancakes/waffles. It’s a lot of food – and at under $9, makes breakfast for 2 practically a steal!

TurkeySandLunch/Dinner: I find that the best thing to share at lunch time has to be the deli sandwiches – most places have some form of pre made turkey/ham/roast beef sandwich, and it usually comes with a side of pasta salad or fries (I personally like to opt for the fries because you usually get more, which is a benefit when you’re looking to split up a meal!). Burgers are also a good choice, as most places have them and they tend to be on the large side as well. These items usually run in the $9-$12 range

BCupcake

(he is slightly scared of its giant-ness!)

Snacks: Disney has TONS of amazing snack options, and those that are great for sharing include cookies, popcorn, rice krispie treats, and cupcakes (like this amazing butterfinger cupcake that can be found at Starring Roles in Disney’s Hollywood Studios)

Sharing meals can work for two adults, two kids, an adult and a kid – the way you split meals up is totally up to you, but either way, you will definitely get to enjoy some delicious WDW food, and that’s always a plus in my book!
