Bonus Features

More often then not, the features in the Disney Classic collection last between and hour to an hour and a half. But for the Disney Movie gang and I, that simply isn't enough time! So to prolong our nights of Disney nostalgia, fun and too much cake we often play the bonus features. Sometimes these are great (like the AWESOME mining game on Snow White's bonus disc) and sometimes they are not - nevertheless we have a great time watching them. (Inside joke: Beauty and the Beast is the most loved Disney Classic EVER!)

Now that we've finished all 50 of the Disney Classics, I do feel a little sad. I invested my time, money and sometimes tears into this project, and whilst I'm glad to have completed it (almost) successfully, I do kinda wish we had a bonus disc, just to give us a little more time.

So, even though there are (as yet) no more movies in the Disney Classic collection, here's a quick little recipe which uses up leftover cake and icing, just to give us a little more time until the end.

The number you make, the time it takes and how much cake and icing you need really depends on how much you have leftover, but as a general rule of thumb I would advise having 3 times as much cake as you have icing.

  1. Take your leftover cake and break it into fine crumbs. (You can use a blender if you want to speed things up, but it does mean more cleaning!)
  2. Stir in the leftover icing until it forms a smooth gloopy paste.
  3. Press the mixture into a silicone mould, and place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes. Or, it you don't want to use a mould, just roll teaspoon sized blobs of the mixture into balls, place on a tray and put in the freezer to set.
  4. Once set, remove from the mould and place a lollipop stick into them (or cocktail stick, as I had no lollipop sticks available!)
  5. Dip the into some melted chocolate, candy wafers or other cake covering and then pop into a styrofoam cup to dry. (As you can see from my picture, I did not get chance to complete this step as I dropped my plate of pops - d'oh!)
Happy thoughts!

PS - please don't get the wrong impression from this post... it's not all doom and gloom in the Princess and the Cake HQ! In fact, after taking a little break from Disney Movie Nights, rumour has it the Disney Movie Nights gang will soon be getting back together to start the Disney/Pixar Collection - coming soon!
