Simba & Nala Fresh Fruit Pie

Simba & Nala Fresh Fruit Pie

 Simba & Nala Fresh Fruit Pie

This Simba & Nala Fresh Fruit Pie was made using blueberries, cantaloupe, mango, piel de sapo melon, plum, watermelon, peach and carrot.  This fruit platter is a fun way to eat fruit. Simba’s mane is entirely made from strips of red watermelon. Simba was made with peach and mango while Nana was made with cantaloupe to be able to easily tell them apart. The blueberries make a great backdrop for the lions.

This wonderful food art was made by Edible Food Art For Kids. I love the way this artist makes fruit look so appealing. This fresh fruit pie is a great alternative to cakes and cookies for a birthday or Valentine’s Day celebration.

This is #4 of 14 Valentine’s Day Posts that I am doing. Yesterday I featured, Snoopy Heart Cookies.  Check back tomorrow for another Valentine’s treat.

Winnie The Pooh Partying With The Lion King

Winnie the Pooh Partying With The Lion King

These wonderful cookies feature Winnie the Pooh Partying With The Lion King. They were made by Joliette Marie. They feature Winnie the Pooh, Simba, Piglet, Nala, Tigger, Pumbaa, Owl and Timon. I really like cookies that mix characters that have never met in animation and these are absolutely delightful.

 

Winnie the Pooh Meets the Lion King

One thing that I really like about these wonderful cookies is that Joliette uses different designs for the characters. For Simba and friends, Joliette uses a style that looks like the animated versions of the characters from the Lion King movies. But for Winnie the Pooh and friends, Joliette mixes the Disney versions of the characters with the classic versions by E. H. Shepard. (A quick aside: A few years ago, a local museum had a bunch of E. H. Shepard’s drawings on display. If you ever get a chance to see them, I highly recommend it.). By mixing character designs, each character stands out more than if Joliette had only used one style for all of the characters.

I have featured so many cakes and cookies that mix characters together. Here are a few of my favorites:

These wonderful cookies have the Jetsons meeting the Flintstones.

This 4th birthday cake has Baby Yoda meeting E.T.

These 1st birthday cookies feature Moana meeting Lilo & Stitch.

Simba and Nala Cake

This is the 6th of 14 Valentine posts.   This post focuses on another of Disney’s awesome couples:  Simba and Nala from The Lion King II.

This wonderful cake was made by Amirova Valeria.

This romantic Simba and Nala cake has a hand-painting of them. It looks like the cake was airbrushed yellow then brown. It reminds me of the color of the dirt at Pride Rock. The yellow shows all around the characters heads to focus your attention on them. A sculpture of  yellow brown butterflies and dark green leaves is on the top of the cake.  They match nicely with the cake background and with Simba’s mane.

Terrific Lion King Pie

Lion King Pie

This terrific Lion King pie features Simba’s head and mane made from pie dough.

This wonderful Disney pie was made by Sugar Crumbs Pies

I made my first decorated pies recently and I have an idea of what’s involved to make something like this.

The mane appears to be concentric circles of red and orange leaf shaped pie crust cutouts with a hand-painted Simba in the middle.  It’s a decorative way to give an apple a top crust.

It’s terrific that such cute characters can come to life in pie form.  There are some people who like pies better than cakes and this pie would be perfect for a themed party.
