You know how we love our big, over-the-top cupcakes here at the DFB.
Cupcakes tend to take some of the top spots in any Disney World bakery case, so typically they aren’t remotely hard to spot.
But there is a little cupcake gem that really hasn’t received its proper due… The Lemon Blast Cupcake can only be found in the Sunshine Seasons bakery case in Epcot’s Future World, and more often than not, it’s hidden on the bottom shelf, well below the croissants, cookies, and muffins.
Here is a small batch, just waiting to be discovered like the “Charlie in the Box” on the Island of Misfit Toys…
(By the way, the Lemon Blast Cupcake is $4.49 and a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan.)
One of our rad readers (thanks, Jessica!) reminded us of this one, and it’s high time to give the Lemon Blast Cupcake a little DFB love!
Aside from the zig-zaggy, criss-cross-y pattern of lemon (!) drizzled over the top, the rest of the cupcake is pretty basic… or so it seems. Vanilla frosting covers a yellow cupcake base.
Before we find out what’s inside, take a look at this…
Weird, right? The piped lemon gel topping is a little stringy and a little sticky. So be warned. I’m not sure how I feel about it. Physically it’s kind of gross, but it tasted fine. So, there ya go.
So what is inside, anyway? A lovely center of lemon curd. SCORE!!!
You know how I feel about lemon curd. I hold a reverence for it that’s rivaled only by my love of plastic cheese. So whenever I stumble upon it, it’s a good day .
I don’t even mind (much) that the vanilla frosting is on the thin side. It keeps the lemon the star of the show, and helps it live up to its name. The burst of lemon coupled with the vanilla makes the Lemon Blast Cupcake is everything it needs to be. So to my fellow lemonheads, I say… get on it!
