How to Create Disneyland’s Sparkling Churro Magic at Home

in Disneyland Resort, Food

CHURRO POWER!  Disney is delivering this delight in new ways lately.  From lemon flavored golden churros for the 50th anniversary of Pirates of the Caribbean to the red, yellow and blue churros celebrating the release of Cars 3.  Disney has even offered blue and red lightsaber churros to feed the Force for hungry guests.

A while back ITM brought you several recipes on how to make magical munchies from the theme parks in your own kitchen. One of those delicious delights was none other than the infamous, aforementioned churro. Now we’d like to show you how to “plus” those culinary creations with a cleverly cool confection that will make them truly sparkle.

How, you may ask, is this possible?  Enter “Little Waisted,” a perfect name for the California based company started by creating craft cocktails. This bling business specializes in glitter-like colored sugars.

The company was founded three years ago and offers three lines of products: itsy glitzy (edible glitter for desserts and such), bakery bling (great for churros), and glass glitz (for rimming magical cocktails).  It was the latter, cocktail creation that launched the niche market of decorative sugars and salts.  All of their products are completely edible and contain no plastic.

For those playing along at home and wanting to add some magic to their churros, Bakery Bling is the way to go.  With selections like the same lemon flavored gold glitter that pirates have been known to enjoy to the red, blue or yellow sugar that’s perfect for a bit of Pixar dusting (Cars 3) or crafting a more elegant dessert from a more civilized age.  Holiday variations like 4th of July glitter and Valentine’s glitter (with metallic red hearts) can also be found among the 103 (and growing) options.

Little Waisted is the supplier to the Walt Disney Company for the shiny, colorful sugar dusting found on special sweet treats like the Cars 3 or Pirates of the Caribbean churros (and beignets).

That same edible glitter, in coarse or fine grade, is available for those wanting to add some bling to their baking (or other desserts and drinks) at home.  Surf on over to their website to see the full line of edible glitter.

Will you be “plussing” your bakery skills to make some of these theme-park inspired treats?  If so, we’d love to see the result.  Please share your photos in the comments section to this story on our Facebook page.
