DFB readers know that around this time of year, we like to share a few fun gift ideas for the Disney food fans in your life. And if that means YOU, well we think picking up a little something for yourself is just fine.
Last week we shared a few of our favorite ways to celebrate with a Disney Dinner Party! Today, with visions of sugar plums starting to dance in my head, I’m pretty sure it’s time to make COOKIES! What, you too? Great! We can swap recipes!
In the meantime, I can’t think of a better way to get into the spirit of baking and cookie making than by stocking up on all kinds of fun Disney kitchenware that’s made just for the occasion!
Whether you’re holiday shopping for all of those bakers on your list, or stocking up on a few pre-Christmas holiday “surprises” for yourself, check out the cool things I’ve found in the Disney Store online for your bake-apalooza 2012! C’mon — grab a whisk and let’s go!
