My daughter Katie and I had great fun creating a new series of short videos for Disney.com“Taste of Disney” that takes viewers behind the scenes in kitchens across Walt Disney World Resort to learn the secrets of the Disney chefs.

Take a look at the Wonderland Tea Party at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, then follow us to the bakery for tips on creating your own fancy cupcakes at home – it’s easier than you think!

To see our videos, go to http://disney.go.com/disneyfans/taste-of-disney.

  • They do look too pretty to eat!

  • Those were some beautiful cupcakes. I’d hate to eat them!

  • Thank you for the video! I love to see how they make those beautiful deserts. It is so interesting to watch. I can’t wait for the next one!

  • I was wondering if you knew, if the coffee they serve at the resorts is available for sale? I love that coffee, would love to be able to buy some to get me through visits!

  • Really looking forward to more vids. I love making Disney food at home and am waiting for Pam’s latest cookbook to be back in stock so my order can be filled.

  • Love it! Keep the videos coming :-)

  • Thank you for sharing! I love the behind the scenes/foodie technique posts. I have scoured the internet for the Main Street Bakery’s rice crispy treat recipe and can’t find anything. There is something so incredibly simple and delicious about them that I can’t seem to replicate at home. I leave Thursday for WDW and hope that I can ask for the recipe while I am there. Any chance you can share that with us?
    Please keep the food posts coming.

  • Wonderful!!!I love it!!!! :)

  • Keep the food videos coming ~ I love behind the scenes cooking/baking/candy making. We’ve traveled to Disney so many times I’ve lost count but every time we come back I try to recreate the favorite treat from that vacation! Whether it’s giant cupcakes or dipped rice krispy treats…Disney treat are great! Thanks

  • Rolled Fondant:
    1 Tbsp + 2 tsp. unflavored gelatin
    1/4 cup cold water
    1/2 cup glucose (can purchase at craft stores)
    2 Tbsp solid vegetable shortening
    1 Tbsp glycerine
    8 cups sifted powdered sugar

    Combine gelatin and cold water; let stand until thick, about 3 minutes. Place gelatin mixture in top of double boiler and heat and stir until dissolved. Add glucose, mix well. Stir in shortening; just before mixture is completely melted remove from heat. Add glycerin, flavoring and color. Cool until lukewarm.

    In large bowl, make a well in 4 cups confectioners’ sugar. Pour the lukewarm gelatin mixture into the well and stir with a wooden spoon, mixing in sugar and adding more, a little at a time, until stickiness disappears. Knead in remaining sugar. Knead until the fondant is smooth, pliable and does not stick to your hands. If fondant is too soft, add more sugar; if too stiff, add water (a drop at a time). Add frosting color and knead to change the color of the fondant. Roll out on a surface covered with a small amount of powdered sugar. Store in airtight container in a cool, dry place.

    It’s quite a bit of work to make, as Pam posted it’s much easier to buy the fondant already made at a store.

  • This was a great video ! I enjoyed watching it ! I don’t have kids, but I’m sure I can imagine an adult tea-party-for-dessert that will work…

    Now, I just have to find a recipe for the fondant.

    Thank you !

    • You also can buy fondant at craft stores with baking supplies.
