Disney Christmas Cookies

Disney Christmas Cookies

I made these Disney Christmas cookies featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Pluto, Goofy, Winnie the Pooh, and Uncle Scrooge for my daughter’s birthday.

My daughter’s birthday is in December and we really enjoy going to Disneyland and Walt Disney World as a family so I wanted to make her cookies that were festive and that would represent the fun times we had together at Disney parks.  

When you think of Disney, you can’t help but think of Mickey and Minnie so I wanted to make cookies of them.  

I based my cookie design on a Disney Santa’s Cookie set that included a white milk jug, a cookie plate for Santa, and a bowl for Pluto’s snacks. I liked the Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Pluto on there, and I liked the simple black, white, and red color scheme.   Pluto was the only character with an additional color. 

Minnie and Minnie Mouse Christmas Cookies

Here’s my Mickey and Minnie cookies. I used royal icing to create a Santa hat for each.  The ears and nose also have dimension.  I gave each cookie a red dot border to draw out the red on other parts of the cookies.

Disney Christmas Cookies Donald Daisy Scrooge

Donald, Daisy, and Scrooge Christmas Cookies

In addition, I added Donald and Daisy Duck and even Scrooge McDuck.  

I based Scrooge on this terrific Uncle Scrooge Cookie made by The Red Car Baking Company.  Daisy was based on a cookie in this Classic Disney Character cookies set made by Casey’s Confections.  

I dressed Uncle Scrooge in all red to keep my original color theme of red, black, and white. His hat is made from royal icing. Daisy has a royal icing red bow.  The ducks bills are a golden yellow and match with the color of Pluto.

Furthermore, I included a Pluto cookies. He has green holly leaves and red berries on his red collar. He is wearing a Santa hat too.

In addition, my daughter really likes the Goofy movie and since he is often seen with Mickey, I wanted to have a Goofy cookie too.  He is entirely red, white, and black, just like Mickey and Minnie.

Moreover, my family really likes Winnie the Pooh, so I had to include him, even though you do not usually think of him when you think of Mickey and Friends.

I also made a Happy Birthday cookie in the Disney font.

In addition, my husband’s mother’s birthday is also in December and I wanted to use a Disney Christmas theme there too so I used Disney Christmas cookies to decorate two cakes. I wrapped the cakes in plastic wrap for transport and to preserve the cake. 

The first cake has a strawberry filling and is covered in buttercream.  I placed the Mickey Mouse cookie on the side of the cake and the Happy Birthday cookie on the top.  

The second cake is an almond pound cake. I placed a Minnie Mouse cookie on top it. 

 

Here’s some in progress shots of the cookies.

Disney Christmas Cookies in progress

Trace designs and color in eyes and faces

I first traced the character design onto the cookies that were flooded with white royal icing.

Next, I used black edible marker to color in the black eyes of the characters.

At this point, I also painted Pluto and Pooh golden yellow and painted Donald’s and Daisy’s and Scrooge’s bill yellow.

Minnie Christmas cookie

add black royal icing for ears and nose

Second, I filled in the ears and noses of Minnie and Mickey with black royal icing to give them dimension. 

Furthermore, I filled in Goofy’s ears and nose and Pluto’s ears and nose and Pooh’s nose with black royal icing.  The black sections that were not touching other  wet royal icing were done at this time.

Mickey Christmas cookie

I filled in Mickey’s shirt with red royal icing since it was not touching any other icing. I should have also done his nose, but I forgot and had to do it later.

Add red icing for hat and shirt and collar

Third, once the ears dried, I filled in the Santa hat with red royal icing and used black royal icing to fill in his nose that I forgot in the last step. 

Minnie Christmas cookie

In addition, I filled in the red of Minnie’s hat and Minnie’s shirt. I also filled in the red of all of the Santa hats and Daisy’s bow and Scrooge’s hat and part of Pluto’s collar and his tongue.

add white icing for hat

Once the red royal icing dried, I filled in the white parts of the Santa hat. I used an edible black marker to fill-in in the black parts of Mickey’s face, which could have been done when I filled in his eyes earlier.

Now, the Mickey Mouse Christmas cookie was complete.

I filled in the other characters with black, red, and white royal icing filling in as many sections as possible without filling in sections that were adjacent until that particular Disney Christmas cookie was complete.

Uncle Scrooge Cookie

Welcome to the latest round of Super Blog Team Up!

As you can probably guess from my wacky redo of the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer theme song and this great Uncle Scrooge Cookie made by The Red Car Baking Company, I’m focusing on Scrooge McDuck today.

Right about the time I began writing this post, Disney announce that the current season of DuckTales would be the last. At first, writing this post seemed bittersweet, but as I worked on this post, I realized that Scrooge McDuck and the rest of the DuckTales gang aren’t going away. There will still be comics, future cartoons, games, toys, and T-Shirts featuring these characters.

As soon as Charlton Hero announced that we were doing a December themed Super Blog Team Up, I knew I wanted to write a Christmas themed post.  While I like Frosty the Snowman, The Grinch, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, my favorite Christmas character has got to be Scrooge McDuck.

 

Painted Uncle Scrooge Cake

This marvelous hand painted Uncle Scrooge Cake was made by Bake Susha Bake.

I know a lot of you are thinking that other than borrowing his first name from Charles Dickens’ most famous character, Scrooge isn’t a Christmas character. That only because you’ve never spent Christmas on Bear Mountain.

 

Money Bin Birthday Cake

Dream Cakes by Robyn made this wonderful Scrooge McDuck’s Money Bin Cake.

Before we can spend time on Bear Mountain, we need to pay a visit to Carl Barks. Carl was an employee of the Disney Studios. He was in inbetweener, created some gags which appeared in cartoons, and worked in the story department. He also worked on two comic book stories – Pluto Saves The Ship and Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold. These were the first Pluto comic book story and the first original Donald Duck comic book story. Carl was one of the scripters on the Pluto story and one of the artists on the Donald Duck story.

After Carl left Disney Studios during World War II, he approached Western Publishing about working on Donald Duck comic books for them. Since Carl had already worked on two Disney comic books, he was hired. Carl would end up creating around 500 comic book stories staring Disney’s ducks, flesh out their world, and become one of the most popular comic book creators ever. For most of his stories, Carl wrote, pencil, inked and letter them. He was a master at one page gags, ten page stories, and longer adventure stories. He created Scrooge McDuck, Magica De Spell, Flintheart Glomgold, Gyro Gearloose, The Beagle Boys, The Junior Woodchucks, Gladstone Gander and dozens of other characters.  Carl Barks became one of the most beloved people to ever create comics. That is amazing because Western Publishing didn’t include creator credits in their comics, so for years he was just known by his fans as the Good Duck artist.

 

Uncle Scrooge Birthday Cake

This delightful DuckTales Birthday Cake was made by The Sugar Butcher.

In 1947, Carl Barks was assigned to create a Christmas themed story for Donald Duck. Since Donald was perpetually broke, Carl created a character who was the opposite of Donald – a rich uncle named Scrooge McDuck. As is often the case, the Scrooge we know and love would take a few years to develop. Originally, Scrooge was wealthy, but not excessively. He was elderly and leaned over when he walked with his cane. And, he was clearly inspired by Dickens’ Scrooge before meeting the three ghosts. This Scrooge hated Christmas and had thought balloons like “Everybody hates me, and I hate everybody!” and “Me – I’ve never had any fun!”.

The story entitled Christmas on Bear Mountain starts with Donald being too broke to buy Christmas presents. Donald and the three nephews are invited by Scrooge to spend Christmas at his cabin on Bear Mountain. The cabin is filled with food and presents. The only drawback is the mountain is the home to bears. What Donald and the nephews don’t know is that Uncle Scrooge plans to go to the cabin dressed as a bear and test Donald’s courage. Scrooge’s plans don’t work out because there is too much snow, so he is delay getting to the cabin.

After the snowstorm, the nephews convince a cowardly Donald to go into the woods and cut down a Christmas tree. All four ducks don’t realize that the tree is hollow and has a baby bear sleeping in it. Once they discover the baby bear, they try to capture it. Before they can catch the baby bear, the mother bear shows up. Momma and baby eat most of the food and fall asleep in front of the fireplace. Huey, Dewey, and Louie try to capture the baby bear. Donald tries to chase off the mother bear, but is so scared that he faints and lands beside her. When Scrooge finally shows up, he finds Donald sleeping with the mother bear, while the nephews chase the baby bear. Scrooge is amazed by their bravery.

 

Classic DuckTales Cookies

These wonderful DuckTales Cookies were made by Baked Happy.

While Uncle Scrooge was created for this one story, Carl Barks would quickly realize that the character had a lot of potential. The next summer, Carl would create the story The Old Castle’s Secret. In this story, Scrooge is in financial trouble and needs to return to the McDuck castle in Scotland where a hidden treasure lies. The only problem, The Castle of Dismal Downs is haunted by an invisible ghost. Scrooge, Donald and the nephews must travel to Scotland, find the treasure and defeat the ghost. This version of Scrooge McDuck is much more likeable and closer to the character that we all know and love.

 

Webby Vanderquack Cake

This wonderful Webby Vanderquack Cake was made by Оля Торт Рівне.

After this story, Barks started using Scrooge McDuck regularly in Donald Duck stories. In 1952, Uncle Scrooge had become popular enough that Carl Barks was asked to create a story where where Scrooge was the lead character instead of Donald Duck. This story is the classic Only A Poor Old Man. Since that story there have been over 400 issues of Uncle Scrooge comics published in the United States and countless Uncle Scrooge comics published world wide. There have been two DuckTales cartoon series. Scrooge has also been featured in other cartoons, toys, games, and clothes. All of Scrooge’s success began with Carl Barks and Christmas on Bear Mountain.

Disney Christmas Cookies

These wonderful Disney Christmas Cookies were made by ELiN’ s cookies 糖霜餅乾/手作空間.  This great set has four different cookie designs – Chip wearing a red bow tie and a Santa hat, Chip wearing a red bow tie and reindeer antlers, a Mickey Mouse snowman with a hat and scarf, and a decorated Christmas Tree. Almost every Christmas Tree is decorated differently.  My favorite is the tree decorated by Chip ‘n’ Dale because it lights, ornaments, and acorns.

 

Disney Christmas Cookies

Shirley took around 20 different photograms of these cute Christmas Cookies. I’m sharing my top 7. One thing I really like about Shirley’s photos is that she uses so many different props and backgrounds. That is a ton of work, but the results are so many wonderful pictures.

Disney Halloween Cupcake Tower

Happy Halloween!

This marvelous Disney Halloween Cupcake tower was made by OC’s Kitchen. When I saw this, I knew that I wanted to share this on Halloween. This wonderful cupcake tower has Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto in costume. This must have taken hours to created because every single cupcake has a costumed figure on it. Plus, the tower is topped with a spectacular Halloween cake.

 

Disney Halloween Cupcake Tower

I really like the giant Mickey Mouse pumpkin in the back and the little Goofy pumpkins. The little pumpkins even have Goofy’s hat.

Donald is a devil. Pluto is a skeleton with a mask. Daisy is a princess. Goofy is a mummy. Minnie is a witch. Mickey is Dracula. Each character is too cute.

 

Disney Halloween Cake

This cake is so much fun. It has a house with a full moon rising behind it. On the sides are Goofy, Pluto and two pumpkins. This wonderful cake is topped with more pumpkins, including a Giant Mickey Mouse pumpkin just like you’d see at Disneyland or Walt Disney World. Mickey, Minnie, Donald (who is behind Mickey) and Daisy are all on top of this cake. With all the characters in costume and the giant Mickey Mouse pumpkin, this cupcake tower reminds me of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World.

Hope you have a wonderful Halloween!
