Nerdie Foodie: 60 Years of Sleeping Beauty

This week is a huge milestone for one of the classical Disney movies. Sleeping Beauty turns 60 years old. 60 YEARS! So, it’s only fitting that we celebrate with these fantastic Sleeping Beauty inspired recipes.

Side note: Most of these recipes are from the Disney Family collection, but this post is in no way shape or form sponsored by Disney Family. I just really like the recipes from their community.

Okay, let’s go check them out!

The Sleeping Beauty Cocktail

For the adults wanting more of a boozy drink, the Tipsy Bartender has you covered. He recreates this recipe by Cocktails by Cody. This gorgeous drink may take some practice to get the layering technique pat down. Keep practicing and you too can make this drink at home! Check out the recipe here and the video tutorial below!


Sleeping Beauty Donut Cake

To finish us off, Vickie Liu (from Disney Family) shows us how we can make our own towering blue cake – in donut form! With a strategically placed edible broomstick, this towering cake can be easily seen as the cake made by the fairies. Just note that the recipe is near the end of the post.
