This concoction is nothing short of incredible, just like the crew featured on top.
Maui Makes a Statement
Maui was larger than life in the movie, so a giant Maui cake only seems appropriate for a Moana themed party. It will be the talk of the playground.

Even without Sneezy right next to it, this Snow White cake would be absolutely epic. This one gets major bonus points for the "poison" apple on top!

Up, Up, and Away...
Possibly the most romantic (if tear-jerking) Disney movie to date, A bunch of balloons and that cute little house will tug at the heartstrings of any Disney lover, young or old. This would make a really sweet birthday cake but also could work for an anniversary party.
The Sweetest 100-Acre Wood Ever
When you've got a rumbly in your tumbly, nothing satisfies like an absolutely resplendent Winnie the Pooh cake. I'm a little jealous of young Wilford, I must admit.
