If you stop by the bakery case in Roaring Fork at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, there is bound to be something that will catch your eye; maybe the Magic Cookie Bar, or the S’mores cupcake, which is still going strong.
But there is a treat often found there that’s managed to fly under the radar, and that’s the Chocolate Caramel Cupcake.
I think this snack’s low profile is due to its rather simple appearance. While chocolate on chocolate always looks pretty good, when it’s placed near something like the Strawberry Lemonade Cupcake…
… it can be easy to miss. But my fellow caramel fans should take notice, because you don’t want to pass this by!
While I mentioned this cupcake being rather plain at first glance, the “outside” is still nothing to sneeze at. Rich chocolate cake is topped with dense chocolate frosting that is dark enough to be mistaken for bittersweet chocolate (especially when spied in the bakery case), but reminds me more of chocolate fudge in both flavor and consistency. YUM.
The frosting is not laid on too thick, which is fine because it leaves more room for what’s inside… and it’s what’s inside that really delivers the “Wow” factor here.
Now, they say “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” So while a an oozing pile of caramel sprinkled with cake crumbs may not make for the prettiest photo ever, this beholder thinks the gooey, generous pile of caramel is about as close to gorgeous as food can get! (Well, this and plastic cheese, of course.)
This is no mere dollop of caramel — there is enough of the golden stuff in here to have caramel with every bite of the cake. Or, you can do what I did… just dig in and eat the caramel by itself, then finish the chocolate cake .
Should you find yourself at Wilderness Lodge, make sure to stop by Roaring Fork’s bakery case. While you never know exactly what you might find, it’s a pretty safe bet that you’ll happen upon something good!
