My love of Disneyland runs deep. It's just such a magical place for me.
My youngest child is all girl. She was putting on lipstick before she could walk and talk and wears more jewelry than I do. She loves to put on fancy princess outfits, diamonds, a beautiful crown and declare she is a princess. I eat up every little bit of it, knowing she's growing up way too fast. If only I could stop time and cherish every single bit of her. She was born sweet. She is kind, loving, and compassionate. I visited her school yesterday for parent teacher conferences and ran into her in the hallway. She must have told me she loved me at least 15 times in that brief moment. She reminds of Cinderella and that's who she begs to dress up as every single Halloween.
I have thrown many Cinderella birthday parties but she is requesting another one this year. Since freakshakes are all the rage right now, I thought it would be fun to have her friends make their own at her party. A Princess Cinderella FreakShake will be her dream come true. She has spent more time in the dentist chair than all of my other kids combined...unfortunately she LOVES sugar. This Princess Cinderella Milkshake is definitely inspired by her.
So what is a freakshake? It's basically making a milkshake into a whimsical treat. We eat with our eyes first so it's creating something that you can't wait to dig into. They became popular in New York City and we even tried to eat one the last time we visited but the line was 2 hours long and wrapped around the building. I decided to make mine at home!
This Princess Cinderella Freak Shake is made by layering white vanilla milkshake and teal colored shake (thank you food coloring) into a large glass. It is topped with a slice of white wedding cake (because ice cream and cake go together like PB & J). Large marshmallows and pretzel rods are dipped into melted white melting wafers and sprinkled with teal sparkling sugar. White frosting is used to spread around the edge of the glass and teal sixlets candy are placed along the edge. The frosting acts as a glue, when wet, so the sixlets adhere to the glass. It looks like Cinderella blue pearls all along the glass. Small crowns can be placed on top for a pretty Cinderella freakshake.

You gotta teach your kids to love sugar at a young age, haha. My grown up kiddos still have a huge sweet tooth and are "battling the bulge" in their 20s, but I tell them that what they eat is their decision now that they're out of my house, LOL. People are so scared of feeding their kids sugar these days. It's not the parents responsibility to take the fun out of being a kid. What a gorgeous milkshake!
This turned out just perfect!
Thank you so much, Liz! Your Disneyland inspired shake was incredibly good. I loved your creativity! You are one talented woman! xo - Melissa
