Guest Review: Orange Cupcake at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot

We’re welcoming back DFB Guest Author and good friend Joey Beyer with a guest review of the Orange Cupcake at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot’s Future World! Since we’re big fans of Disney Cupcakes, we can’t wait to show you this one!

Hello everyone! I am very excited to introduce the new Orange Cupcake that has popped up at Epcot’s Sunshine Seasons. This cupcake can be found in the self-service cabinet adjacent to the dessert counter at Sunshine Seasons, so you can just grab your favorite!

I am a huge fan of the Sunshine Seasons, as it always has a great selection of foods and unique seasonal options. (And by the way — for those of you that are fans of the Warm Peanut Butter Brownie at Sunshine Seasons, there is no need to worry. As of 9/7/15 it was still available as the “Seasonal Dessert” at Sunshine Seasons.)

As you can see, the cupcake is topped with a gummy orange candy and orange frosting.

The frosting is the standard Disney buttercream frosting and has a hint of orange flavor! The frosting is also topped with large granules of sugar.

The cake itself is a white cake, which is moist and filled with a marmalade-like consistency orange filling. The filling is both sweet and tart.

I cannot say the filling was my favorite, but it was still very tasty and high quality.

Overall, this cupcake is a very refreshing treat that can be a pre- or post-meal snack. Even if you are not crazy about orange flavored desserts, this cupcake is still worth a try.
