If there’s one thing you know about me by now, it’s that I love Disney cupcakes. I want to try every kind of Disney cupcake ever made and document the process for you, but I realized something very interesting recently.
There’s one type of Disney cupcake I haven’t yet tasted…but oddly I have over a dozen pictures of them:
I call these the “Pink, Blue, and White Cupcakes,” because those are the most common forms I see them take. (I once saw Halloween orange — below, in back — but never again.)
Sprinkles can be different — multi-colored, black-white-red, pastel, primary, all one color — it changes all the time. Cake can be different — I’ve seen chocolate and vanilla, and it almost looks like the one closest to us below could be spice/carrot? But the frosting is always the same. Pink. White. Blue. Three swirls.
It’s a mystery to me why I’ve never tried these, but since I have so many pictures of them I figured I owed it to myself to figure out what’s keeping me from pulling the proverbial sugary trigger. Here are my theories:
1. They look like they’re made out of plastic, so I think they’re going to taste like plastic. Or worse, they’ll taste like that horrible “store-bought-in-the-tube” decorating frosting…or play doh.
2. The color is so saturated on the pink and blue versions that I know I’ll end up walking around with bright pink or bright blue lips all day.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, and you’re right. Neither of those theories are good enough to keep the world’s biggest Disney cupcake fan from trying these cupcakes. And my subconscious agrees with you, clearly, because I’ve been taking pictures of them for years.
So, I promise you — and me — that I will try these cupcakes on my trip to Disney World next month and give you my honest review of them. Blue lips and all.
In the meantime, for those of you who HAVE tried these, keep telling me that they won’t taste like I’m biting into a row of nickle nips.
