Fantasyland Fairy Tale Dundee Cake - A method

Fantasyland Fairy Tale Dundee Cake - A method

Do you remember what it was like as a child to open up a fairy tale book and believe that it truly exists? To see all those fantasies in your mind and know there is a place where they all live, in a real life fairy tale. Well, I'm here to tell you that it is here on this planet in all its whimsical truth.

The castle of a sleeping princess beckons you with its light pastels welcoming all who wish to come in all the joy and imagination they can stand. Peter Pan flies to your right, Mr. Toad rides the roads with his crazy cars, and Alice is throwing a tea party at the pavilion. Talking trains and a mountain holding an aged monster await those ready for adventure. When you think you have seen it all, the world's biggest dream comes true. All the children of the world come together in total peace and harmony.

The sounds are beyond reality and yet right before you. Behind the light whimsical music came the sounds of the carousel interesting the day. The trains, boats, characters, and music make you believe that all the sounds you have heard as a child have come together to manifest into this reality.

Are you surprised by the feel of the sword within your hands pulled from a rough stone by the would be king? Every texture shifts and turns to make each fairy tale its own book. Mosaics of fairy tales dreamed and rough stones that feel like the adventures you knew within yourself in an earlier time. You know that you can find whatever of your heart's desires at your calling and straight through the power of your own fantasy.

Candy apples, hot dogs, and popcorn drift on the wind. Your heart soars with all the joy and sweetness of childhood. It was a time where the sun came straight through the curtains and Mom was baking cookies in the kitchen. Everything was a game and a day an additional one interesting story to be told.

Step into Gepetto's bistro and the smells come to be a taste. From cheeseburgers and fries to cookies, your head is reeling. Then you taste the cake. A fruit cake of light delicacy filled with fruits and spices of a sweet and hearty nature. Delicate and mighty all at once, it completes the picture.

You think it only exists in your head, that maybe you have made it all up? Wouldn't you be surprised if one day you were walking in California and you came over a Fantasyland of which I spoke. Give it a try, you maybe surprised.
