In addition to the black forest cupcake, Contempo Cafe in Disney’s Contemporary Resort also carries this little beauty:
The Dulce de Leche cupcake is a vanilla cupcake piled high with sweet, creamy caramel frosting. Again, this isn’t the buttery, lard-y frosting you’ll find with the cupcakes over at Starring Rolls Cafe, which automatically makes it sub-par in my estimation, but those of you who prefer a lighter, creamier frosting will love this.
And I saved the best part for last! Cut inside the cupcake and there’s even more caramel-y goodness! What I find particularly interesting is that the frosting, as you can see, goes all the way through the cupcake — underneath the actual filling! I wonder if this is standard procedure in order to keep the inside of the cupcake from getting soggy, or if this just happened to be a fluke that day…
Overall, the cupcake was good, but doesn’t top my list. The taste was sweet and a bit two-dimensional; it was more “store-bought cupcake” when I wanted spectacular. When I’m next at Contempo I’ll grab the black forest cupcake before this one, but those who love caramel will likely love this!
I’d love to hear reviews and comments from those of you who have tried it (or are going to try it!)…
