Once again, cast member Michael S. brings us another new cupcake on Disney property! This one’s for all of you springtime strawberry lovers… and Grand Marnier lovers…
Yummo! Here’s Michael’s review:
The Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake was probably one of the lightest, most refreshing cupcakes I have had at Disney World. It is the perfect dessert or snack for a hot summer day.
The frosting had the light, fluffy consistency of whipped cream. At first glance you may wonder where the strawberries are, but once you cut it open you will find a generous portion of fresh, sweet, juicy strawberries and I was pleasantly surprised that they did not make the cupcake soggy.
When I ordered I noticed the sign indicated that the cupcake contains alcohol. When I asked about this I was told that the strawberries are drizzled with a little Grand Marnier. While the flavor of the Grand Marnier was certainly not overwhelming it did provide a little extra flavor to the cupcake and gave it just a little bit of a kick.
Overall, this cupcake is quite unlike many of the other cupcakes I have sampled at Disney World, presenting a nice contrast to the others that are heavy and rich. I will definitely be getting it again sometime soon.
Thanks Michael! Can’t wait to see what else you find for us as you tour the World!
