You NEED to See Tiffany Davis' Mickey Mouse-Shaped Food Creations
If you didn't already know, we're big fans of all things Disney here at Sweety High.
So when we came across Tiffany Davis' Instagram account, we just about lost it at the sight of her adorable Mickey Mouse-shaped foods. Seriously, every Disney-lover needs to follow her account.
Wanting to know more about how her creations came to be, we chatted with Tiffany about her Insta account, her favorite Mickey-shaped food and what exciting things we can expect from her in the future.
Sweety High: We're obsessed with your Instagram account! How did you come up with the idea of giving food a Mickey Mouse-inspired makeover?
Tiffany Davis: I've always loved Disney, especially Mickey. When I was studying health coaching I started doing a lot more cooking from scratch. As I poured myself into trying new foods and recipes, I realized it was an opportunity to fuse my love of Disney with cooking by making my foods Mickey-shaped. I'd been doing little things like cutting my kids' sandwiches into Mickey shapes, but now I was actually cooking. It became a creative challenge to mold all these new foods I was making into Mickey shapes.
SH: Do you have a favorite Mickey Mouse-shaped food you've created? Which one was the most difficult to make?
TD: I am really proud of my Mickey taco. It took a few tries to get it down but I am really happy I was able to pull it off. I'd never seen a Mickey taco before! My Mickey sushi was definitely hard. Mickey is really not a natural shape for a roll.
SH: Are there any memorable stories behind any of your creations you can share with us?
TD: Often times when I am shooting a photo, my kids like to try to sneak a bite of the food. I've actually captured their little hands grabbing a muffin or blueberries and ended up using that photo.
SH: Do you have any creations in the works you can tell us about?
TD: I do! I am currently working on some gluten-free sweet potato Mickey gnocchi, as well as Mickey raviolis.
SH: Why are you personally such a big fan of Mickey Mouse and Disney in general?
TD: Disney has always had a special place in my heart growing up. My dad tells the story that my parents took me to Disneyland for the first time when I was 2 and I haven't stopped smiling since.
I always loved Mickey and his curiosity, charisma, craftiness and optimism. As I've gotten older and learned more about Walt himself, I've also found him to be an inspiration.
SH: Can you tell us a little bit about your upcoming blog?
TD: Absolutely! My blog—which will be at tifferently.co—will feature vegetarian and vegan Mickey-shaped and Disney-inspired foods with recipes and how-tos so people can make their own. I'm hoping to have it up and running by this summer.
We tried our hand at recreating a Disneyland staple, but we were nowhere near as crafty as Tiffany. Click HERE to see what happened when we made our own version of Pineapple Dole Whip.
