One big question I kept getting asked after posting the photos from Epcot’s new Karamell-Küche caramel store last week was: how was the cupcake?
I figured I needed a few illustrations, so here we go:
The cupcake itself is pretty large. It comes in vanilla and chocolate flavors, and the frosting always matches the flavor of the cake. No mix and match from what I’ve seen.
The cake pretty much stops at the top of the cupcake wrapper; then the frosting begins and keeps going and going and going…
Nope; this one is definitely not for those of you who don’t consider yourselves to be “frosting people.” If you ARE going to try it, bring a “frosting person” along with you. Like me. I’m willing to volunteer.
The cake itself is moist and has a light vanilla taste. It’s probably not the best cake you’ll ever eat, which is another reason why the frosting folks win out on this one. Speaking of, the frosting is of mid-range weight; it’s not whipped cream, and it’s not “butterfinger cupcake” lard frosting — it’s a lighter in-between, and it can be grainy if they’re not careful.
Overall, this is a solid B+ cupcake. It’s not going to give most of the “You Won’t Believe This!” Snacks a run for their money, but it’s definitely a good choice when it comes to Epcot cupcakes.
