I always look forward to returning to the Boardwalk Bakery to check out the latest cupcake creations!
It’s been a busy time at the Boardwalk as we welcomed its newest addition, Ample Hills Creamery, a couple of weeks ago and refurbishment continues on the Flying Fish makeover and the upcoming AbracadaBar. While I can’t help but be tempted by all the unique and yummy flavors at the new ice cream location (seriously, check this place out), I always make it a point to stop by the Boardwalk Bakery pretty much anytime I visit Disney World.
The perennial favorites can typically be found in the case, like the Cheesecake Brownie and Chocolate Mickey Tart. But next to the regular Mickey Oreo Cupcake you can typically spot a surprise with a seasonal cupcake. And the one I had on my last trip combines some flavors perfect for celebrating the return of summer: the Strawberry Lemonade Cupcake.
It’s a pretty thing, isn’t it? The light, whipped lemon frosting is swirled with the similarly textured pink strawberry frosting, topped with an almost artistic fondant piece. It’s all garnished with pink candies and sits on a yellow cake base. I’m not sure if you spotted it in the previous picture, but there is a small white and dark chocolate piece popped in just like a straw for sipping lemonade . Here’s a closeup…
You can actually see where the “straw” was removed as we check out the filling. It’s a bright pink citrusy-strawberry…. well, it was a bit of an unusual consistency that was not quite a pudding, but not really a jelly, either.
The light texture, though, worked rather well with the brighter, citrusy tastes of summer. The seasonal cupcakes at Boardwalk Bakery in particular are always well-themed to the current season, and — as always — we’ll be keeping an eye out for the next one. Could it be the return of the Red, White, and Blue Cupcake for the 4th of July? The way this year is flying by, we’re sure to find out soon!
