There is never a dull moment when you hit up Landscape of Flavors Food Court at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.
I recently got to stay at AOA and couldn’t wait to share some of the fun grab-and-go eats we found. Today, we’re looking at a DFB favorite: cupcakes!
Mickey Oreo Cupcake
First up, this happy little find! While I’ve seen this type of cupcake elsewhere, this is the first spot I’ve seen it with the added Mickey white chocolate face!
Under the lid, you’ll find a fairly standard yellow cupcake with buttercream frosting. But the little white chocolate Mickey face and Oreo “ears” add a little something special to the mix.
Concerned about certain ingredients? You can determine exactly what went into your cupcake from the ingredient list. This is an excellent resource, of course, for guests with special dietary needs. We’re seeing these more and more on Disney grab and go options.
Although it’s sort of boring — there’s no pa-pow! secret filling inside, after all — this one is well executed. The cake is moist, and the buttercream is nice and light. No over-cloying, make-your-teeth-hurt-heavy-sweet here. And definitely no whipped cream frosting.
And c’mon! You get bonus Oreos for the same price as a regular cupcake! Score!!
Here’s another little gem I found: an assortment of Mini-Cupcakes, similar to those I found during Christmas at Epcot. I absolutely love this idea. If you choose to share, there’s a little something for everyone in the fam. If you choose not to, there’s a little variety all for you!
This one includes carrot cake, red velvet, chocolate fudge, and a little lemony/pound cake twist. Yours might differ!
Babycakes NYC Gluten Free, Vegan Mini-Cupcakes
If you need to eat gluten free or vegan, this is the choice for you! Babycakes NYC Bakery is located in Downtown Disney, but now ships their products to the resorts, too!
These cute options come in a variety of flavors and colors. Here, you’ve got chocolate cupcakes with chocolate and colored vanilla frosting.
So whaddya think? Which one is your favorite choice?
No matter what, it’s a win-win!
Will you be adding any of these entries into your next cupcake crawl? What’s your favorite?
