UPDATE: On our recent October 2011 trip to Animal Kingdom, we saw the cupcakes alive and well at Kusafiri Bakery! Just be sure to visit at 11:30 to ensure that you snag your sweet!
A reader (thanks Christa!) sent me an email yesterday asking about the cupcakes at Kusafiri Bakery in Disney’s Animal Kingdom…or the lack thereof!
As you know from our Disney cupcake crawl, there are some pretty fantastic cupcakes and a great brownie in the Animal Kingdom (Zebra Cupcake, paw print brownie, White Chocolate Elephant Cupcake). But the recent change in menus at the parks has shown that Disney is no longer guaranteeing the cupcakes’ existence at Kusafiri.
That said, we have heard from some readers (Thanks Diane R. and Kristin W.!) that the cupcakes are available occasionally, but that they’re not around every single day as they had been before. There are also reports that the frosting is changing from the glorious buttercream to the less-lovable (IMHO) whipped version.
Let us know what your experience is the next time you’re at Kusafiri!
