Pirate Fairy Dessert Party


With the upcoming April 1st release of Disney's all-new movie, The Pirate Fairy, we decided we'd throw a Pirate Fairy dessert party for 7 cousins visiting during their Spring Break.  It was the perfect match to go with the treasure hunt my daughter had already planned for the weekend.  One of my nephews looked up at me and said, "Aunt Carrie, I think you make lots and lots of cupcakes everyday.  You're really good at baking."  I smiled down at him and asked, "Isn't that why you come visit me?"

With so many treats coming out of the oven and needing to be decorated, I was glad to have a few extra helpers in the kitchen.  I baked the cookies right before heading out the door to teach Saturday morning yoga.  After yoga, I picked up an extra niece who wanted to make the cupcakes and cake pops with me.  I relied on the girls to explain the plot of the movie.  They told me how fairy Zarina steals the Blue Pixie Dust and joins the pirates at Skull Island.  Then Tinkerbell and the other fairies must work together to return the Blue Pixie Dust, but in doing do, their talents get switched.
Blue Pixie Dust Cake Pops:
 Mini cupcakes (fairy-sized):
The cupcakes are frosted with vanilla buttercream and topped with Gold Pixie Dust (sanding sugar) or topped Nutella and green fondant leaves, vines or grass.  The cookies are an assortment of fairies, fairy wings, feathers (fast flying talent), cracked eggs (animal talent), beans (light talent), water droplets (water talent) and petals (garden talent).
My nephew looked up at me again, "Aunt Carrie, you also like to exercise a lot, don't you?"  I said, "Yep.  It's good for me and it seems to go hand-in-hand with all of the baking."  The family gathered up ski gear to take in a blue bird day of Spring skiing and then returned home for the Pirate Fairy Party.
I asked each kid "What is your talent?" and after a lot of "ummmms" and "ahhhhhhhs" I was answered with:  "I like PE", "being a helper?", "creating things", "standing up for other people", "being nice", "artist", and "doing laundry". Will Tinkerbell and the Fairies return the Blue Pixie Dust to the rightful place?  Find out when you watch the All-New Tinkerbell Movie with your kids and ask them about their talents- you might be surprised by their answers.   Own It On Blu-ray™ and Digital HD on April 1st!   You can also follow the Disney Fairies on Facebook.
