Disneyland turns 61 today! Let's celebrate!
(By Cuteology Cakes)
And while we're at it, who can name some of the original opening day attractions back in 1955?
That topper has a nod to one already: Autopia.
Now let's see how many cakes I can find for the rest!
Peter Pan's Flight:
(By Good Gosh Ganache)
Can you believe that leafy texture on the top tier?! And the nailed wood planks on the cake board?
Snow White's Scary Adventures:
(By The Vagabond Baker)
Loooove thie gray, white, and red color palette. Stunning.
Mr. Toad's Wild Ride:
(By Childs Cakey Cake)
Or, as some of us Dizgeeks prefer to call it, "Mr. Toad Goes To Hell."
It was a simpler stranger time back then, kids.
(And this cake is stunning. Love the cat tails!)
The nearest and dearest to my heart of course, since I'm a former JC skipper (though at WDW.) Free tours of the back side of water, folks, any time I happen to have a bottle of water on hand. ;)
Main Street Cinema:
Ok, technically not a ride, but still a delightful place to watch classic Mickey shorts and escape the heat.
King Arthur Carousel:
I half expect this cake to start moving, it's so perfect!
Mad Tea Party:
(By Torte d'incanto)
There are lots of great Alice teacup cakes out there, but I fell for this sweet vintage take - and Alice's perfect ruffly petticoats.
Storybook Land Canal Boats:
(By A Wish and a Whisk)
This bottom tier is Storybook Land themed - see Monstro on the left? But you're allowed to gawk at all the rest, too. ;)
So I couldn't find a decent Mark Twain Riverboat or Disney Railroad cake, but to make it up to you, here's a fan favorite that wasn't there opening day:
And you guys, LOOK at this detailed piping:

Un. Be. LIEVABLE. Amirite?
And one last Sweet hurrah for (one of) the Happiest Places On Earth:
Happy Birthday, Disneyland! Here's to many, many more Sweet years.
