Cakes have become an essential item for any celebration or occasion — be it a birthday party, an engagement, or a wedding. While there are some who still prefer their cakes to be plain and traditional, a lot of people want their cakes to be inspired by their favorite Disney movies and characters.
There are at least three types of Disney cakes based on how elaborate they are: fully themed Disney cakes, cakes with Disney accents, and cakes with Disney toppers. Fully themed Disney cakes are those that have obvious Disney designs, like a Mickey Mouse figure cake, a sea-themed birthday cake with a Princess Ariel fondant figure, and a castle wedding cake with figurines of Cinderella and her Prince Charming. These cakes use different design elements taken directly from the Disney films they are based on, such as the Magic Lamp from Aladdin, the Enchanted Rose from Beauty and the Beast, and the infamous apple from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Meanwhile, cakes with Disney accents are perfect for those who prefer more subtle Disney touches to their cakes. Examples of these cakes are a polka-dot mouse ear-shaped cake, a cake topped with a glass shoe fondant figure, and a majestic fairy tale castle.
Lastly, cakes with Disney toppers are basic cakes topped with Disney character figurines, which can be edible or not. Though the least elaborate kind of Disney cake, these cakes are the easiest and least expensive cakes to make.
Everyone loves Disney, so going the Disney route for cakes is never a risky option. Moreover, Disney boasts an extensive library of films and characters, so there’s definitely a Disney-themed cake that would match your personality and preferences.
