There really is no cupcake like a red velvet cupcake. Rich, red velvet cake, smooth, tangy-sweet cheesecake…
And it’s like Christmas came early this year at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, because Starring Rolls Cafe has taken the perfection of the Red Velvet Cupcake and made it just a little bit better.
The Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcake.
That’s right. They’ve added cheesecake to the mix, and it’s pretty outstanding. I first heard about this cupcake from Ryan at Main Street Gazette and I happened to be in Orlando at the time. You can bet I high-tailed it over to Hollywood Studios first chance I got!
You’ll see from looking at the cupcake that the red velvet base is covered with piles of frosting. In the middle of all the frosting, you’ll find a little dollop of cheesecake. The whole thing is drizzled with chocolate and covered in toffee pieces.
And it’s that little dollop of cheesecake — at least that’s what I tasted — that makes the cupcake a completely different experience than other red velvets. The cold, creamy-firm texture and tangy taste are a great contrast with the sweetness of the cupcake and frosting.
