I just got back from a Disney World trip and BOY do I have a ton to share with you!! From new holiday goodies to in-depth reviews, we’ve got a lot of delicious food coming your way. But first up — I had to tell you about this awesome Yule Log at Kusafiri Bakery in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
During my regular “casing” of Animal Kingdom on this trip, I found a few new holiday goodies at Kusafiri. There’s a red-and-green frosted chocolate brownie, a few holiday cookies, and the Yule Log, which I couldn’t wait to try!
I snagged one and headed for my regular “photography” table nearby. Check out the detail on this thing! I love the dusting of “snow,” and the holiday star sprinkles.
The “bark” is made up of dark chocolate shavings, which give the treat an extra bit of texture.
Once you dig in, you realize that this isn’t a “fluff” treat, so to speak. The cake itself is super moist and dense — more like a pound cake — with a rich vanilla flavor.
And while I was worried that the frosting inside would be more like a whipped chocolate filling, it’s really more of a thick mousse with just a hint of lard-y frosting texture. I was very pleasantly surprised and probably ate much more of this than I should have!
Overall, I can highly recommend this treat. I figured it would just be a standard, pre-packaged type swiss roll with dry crumbly cake and whipped cream frosting; but was I ever wrong. I was very impressed with my first bite, and had a hard time stopping when I got to my third and fourth!
Try it; you won’t be disappointed!
