These cupcakes in the new Art of Animation Resort Food court are gorgeous, and a variety of colors are available.
While it’s called a “macaroon cupcake,” the cookies resemble half of what’s being called in bakeries these days a macaron (see the difference between macaroons and macarons here). But how do they taste?
Erin tells us:
They have a classic “macaron-y” almond taste, but the texture is slightly off. Because the cookies are sitting on a big pile of icing, they can get damp. When I tried to pull a cookie off, just a shell-like layer came away at first. Not that this stopped me from eating it. It still had good flavor.
The cupcake itself was quite good, too. It was just regular yellow cake, but moister than many other Disney cakes. The frosting was creamy frosting with little crunchy pearls on the edges.
You can see here the texture of the cookie with the outer shell pulled off.
The cupcake (featuring that cute hidden Mickey) is selling for $3.99 at Art of Animation’s Landscape of Flavors.
So, is this on your list to try the next time you’re in the World?
