In honor of Disney World’s Limited Time Magic events for “Earth Week,” guests have access to a few new “earthy” treats in the parks!
The best one, in my opinion, is the Worms & Dirt Cupcake featuring a teensy flower pot on top!
Worms & Dirt Cupcake in Disney World
My good friend Daniel Wanderman has been touring the parks this week and was lucky enough to get a taste — check it out! (Love the choice of setting here, Daniel — The Victory Garden in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!)
Here’s what Daniel has to say…
The worms & dirt cupcake debuted today at Fairfax Fare on Sunset blvd. This fun cupcake honors Earth week by mimicking the traditional “worms in dirt” dessert with a few twists. This one takes a chocolate cupcake and tops it with a ring of frosting. But why stop there?
The frosting is powdered with cake crumbs (dirt!), chocolate sprinkles (more dirt?), and garnished with gummy worms, a candy flower pot, and chocolate candy flowers. The best part is a delicious chocolate pudding surprise inside.
As a vegetarian and avid gelatin avoider, I pushed the gummy worms and sprinkles aside and dug right into the pudding center. The pudding was cold and delicious, which was quite refreshing on a hot, humid, park hopping Disney day.
It reminded me of the My-T-Fine pudding mom used to make as a treat.
The surrounding cake was soft and moist, but not soggy. I bit right into that flower pot (also filled with pudding), which was a sugary candy. The chocolate flower toppings were hard chocolate candies.
The deconstruction to avoid the gelatin was a bit of a pain, but totally worth it to try this beast of a dessert. Highly recommended, so get it while it lasts!
You can find this sweet treat at ABC Commissary, Pizza Planet, Backlot Express, Studio Catering Co., and Starring Rolls Cafe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios; and at our beloved Kusafari Coffee Shop and Bakery and the espresso and coffee cart at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Want more Earth Week treats?
We’ve spotted a giant gourmet caramel apple featuring Worms & Dirt decor at all of the candy shops around the parks! This one will set you back over $12, though, so be sure it’s right for you before buying!
For a lower price ($4.99), check out the Worms & Dirt tart topped featuring a raspberry and strawberry “worm” at Tony’s Town Square and Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom Park, Kringla Bakeri Og Café and Sunshine Seasons at Epcot, and Capt. Cook’s at Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
And if gummy worms aren’t your thing, there’s another version of the Worms & Dirt cupcake with that fruit-only worm found at Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
Most of these goodies are only available through April 28th, so get ‘em while they’re around! The cupcakes and tarts are $4.99, or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit.
