Time to head over to Disney’s Contemporary Resort for this new cupcake!
August’s cupcake at Contempo is a Turtle Cupcake featuring everyone’s favorite kid turtle, Squirt! Radical, Dude!
Contempo Café is known for its totally awesome cupcake selection! The Café, if you’re not familiar, is the counter-service restaurant in the Contemporary Resort, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the Grand Canyon Concourse near the popular character buffet, Chef Mickey’s.
The restaurant has great options like Cajun Seared Mahi and Chicken Alfredo Pasta — and you can’t miss the amazing Pot Roast! And breakfast here features one of our favorite giant Mickey waffles, because it’s served with salty caramel bananas foster sauce.
But today, we’re going to focus on this month’s Squirt cupcake – sweeeeeet!
So cute, right?! You’ll be thrilled to know that this cupcake tastes just as good as it looks! The cake is a caramel flavor, which I thought was the perfect balance between tasting like caramel and not being overly rich. The icing is a chocolate-caramel mix, which leaned on the side of chocolate. But, there’s a TON of caramel sauce drizzled on top, so you get plenty of both flavors.
It’s topped off with a thin white chocolate square with a Squirt print and praline and caramelized pecans around the edges. But wait, there’s a special surprise inside…
The filling!! It’s a creamy, dreamy chocolate filling with finely chopped pecans mixed throughout! I think it adds a great texture!
If you can’t tell, I really loved this cupcake! It wasn’t overly rich like a lot of Disney cupcakes, so I had no problem finishing the whole thing. 🙂 Plus, I think the connecting a chocolate-y, caramel turtle cupcake to one of our favorite Finding Nemo characters is brilliant.
Our other favorite cupcake from this summer, the Cherry, has already disappeared!
