Today, we’re back with a review of a special, limited time treat — just in time for the release of Disney’s latest HUGE movie — Beauty and the Beast! I give you the Enchanted Rose Cake Pop!
Okay…so Enchanted Rose Cake Pop is the dressed up name that I’m giving this one, because “Character Inspired Cake Pop” is so…. un-Disney-fied.
But yeah, we get it. This is a Hot New Thing. It’s also a Hot Temporary Thing, meant to capture the imaginations (and the coin) of all of us who are half way to being in love with the new Belle and Beast (and Le Fou and the rest of the crew).
And it’s certainly not the only BatB game out there right now. People are losing their minds about the BatB Light Up Rose Tumbler (more about that one in a sec). And Disneyland has gone all out by turning an entire restaurant into a BatB-inspired stop for fans, Red Rose Taverne. (Get the Rose Cake! Get it!)
So of course, we had to get our hands on the Rose Cake Pop and show you the goods.
Out of the case and up close, you can see that this is a pretty artistic Cake Pop. On first inspection, the outside of the rose looked a bit waxy. And “waxy” really isn’t what I’m looking for in a sweet treat. But I pressed on.
The whole thing has a bit of a molded or sculptured feel to it, so I really wasn’t sure what I was going to find when I looked inside.
When I broke it open and took a taste, I found the coating to be your garden variety White Chocolate Candy Coating — tinted red to play its part. The green stem seemed to be the same Candy Coating, just tinted green.
The Cakepop itself was a deep, fudgy Chocolate.
But the most curious part of the treat was this Gummy Ribbon I encountered. Totally edible, but it threw me a bit. I believe its purpose was to help mold and “build” the cake, which was, indeed, rose-shaped. And the gummy ribbon gave a little raspberry flavor to all the chocolate! Interesting…and edible.
Really, I have no idea. But don’t be alarmed when you bite into your rose and find something that looks like tape. It’s not.
