I never miss an opportunity to see what Marceline’s in Downtown Disney is up to. Even if I’m just quickly walking by, I always pop in to see if there is anything new.
On a recent visit, two fun cake pops caught my eye. The Goofy and Cheshire Cat inspired cake pops appear to be close relatives to their caramel apple counterparts. (You can read about the delicious Cheshire Cat Caramel apple here and the disastrous Goofy Caramel Apple here.)
This post though, is all about their mini lookalikes, which were introduced to the resort at the beginning of August.
Since I had already tried a Mike Wazowski cake pop (on more than one occasion) during the Monstrous Summer season, I purchased a Cheshire Cat and Goofy cake pop to go. We were staying on property for the weekend, so I walked them back to the Disneyland Hotel for a little in-room review.
First up, we’ll take a look at the Cheshire Cat.
Round with tiny triangular ears and a great big chocolate smile, the Cheshire Cat is covered with purple and pink sanding sugar. Take a bite into those ears and you’ll find chewy little marshmallows.
The cake pop is chocolate. It’s moist and fudgey, very much the consistency of a chocolate brownie. The white layer you see is a layer of white chocolate. The chocolate is used to coat the cake so that they can get the sanding sugar to stick!
Now, on to Goofy. He’s quite a bit larger than the Cheshire Cat, and I thought it was clever that the cake pop was at the bottom of the stick instead of the traditional pop on top!
His hat is made from a marshmallow covered in green sanding sugar and then trimmed out with a chocolate stripe. Goofy’s ears are also chocolate drizzle, while his “body” is covered in orange and blue sanding sugar.
The cake portion of the pop is a generously sized chocolate medallion. Think chocolate hockey puck!
The consistency is the same as the Cheshire Cat, and it has been dipped in white chocolate to get the sanding sugar to stick as well.
Both cake pops can be found in multiple locations. I have seen them at Marceline’s in Downtown Disney, Candy Palace, and Pooh Corner in Disneyland; and Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure.
They are all $3.99 each, so if you want a little more bang for your buck, go with Goofy, he’s bigger!
Have you tried any of these specialty cake pops yet? Do you prefer these guys in cake pop or caramel apple form?
