When I’m not spending all my free time at Disneyland (and when I’m feeling particularly crafty), I love baking. And one place I love browsing for cute craft ideas is Disney Family. Seriously, if you’ve never looked through the website, you should! Whenever holiday season rolls around, I like looking through their recipes.
When I came across this Squirt Happy Turtlecakes recipe, I knew I had to make it!
Of course mine aren’t as cute as the ones on the Disney website, but I tried! I baked chocolate cupcakes (though you can bake whatever flavor you’d like) and decorated it accordingly. The spearmint leaves were hard to find, and I needed to get them from a candy store. My mom likes to cut corners when I’m trying to bake. She refused to buy mini chocolate chips just to make Squirt’s eye, so I melted dark chocolate to paint them on the gumdrop. I think I made Squirt a little too big, so maybe instead of Squirt cupcakes I made Crush ones? (“You, Mini-Man, takin’ on the jellies” – Finding Nemo) Next time, I think I’d make the cupcakes smaller so Squirt can sit fully on top and look cuter.
I brought these to share with my coworkers and they were a hit! It’s also a fun recipe to get the kids involved. They can help assemble the pieces and then taste the fruits of their labor.
I’m feeling the baking mood. I should look for my next creation!
Have you baked any Disney inspired treats?
Until our next adventure,
