Magic wands that leave clusters of shimmering stars in their wake. Sounds familiar? Let us drop a few more hints. Enchanted castles, magical kingdoms, red roses with magic spells cast on them. Disney is well known for timeless classics such as Beauty and the Beast, tales of adventure like the Lion king and girl power tales like Mulan. But here is one more enticing angle to your favourite Disney cartoon films that you can explore- and that’s food! Disney Parks has posted a sweet surprise in the form of the recipe for its sumptuous Churros.
The Elaborate Feast from Beauty and the Beast
Close your eyes and imagine….the grand feast from Beauty and the Beast. Glimmering chandeliers, a huge dining hall, ornamental candelabras and cascades upon cascades of enchanted treats and desserts.
The Birthday Cake Scene from Sleeping Beauty
Another scene that makes one chuckle is when Princess Aurora’s fairy godmother Fauna tries to make a birthday cake. She attempts to keep her wobbly creation upright using her magic wand.
Whether it’s a bug eating fest from The Lion King or Mulan’s pre- trial power breakfast- yeah the rice porridge with a smiley face! Disney puts the “eat” in treat.
