Our Disneyland Correspondent Heather Sievers (you know her because she’s always Dining in Disneyland — and dining so well!) is more than up to the task of checking out new goodies. And this one happens to be on BOTH coasts right now!
In addition to hanging out with yours truly at the 2017 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival, and trying out ALL. THE. THINGS at the Red Rose Taverne (which has temporarily taken over Village Haus to commemorate the release of Beauty and the Beast), she’s still keeping up with the regular stomping grounds, too. And that includes stops like the Candy Palace.
Because there’s still nothing like a classic Mickey cupcake. And Heather picked up this Cookies and Cream Mickey Cupcake recently.
Ears? Check. Chocolate? Yup. More chocolate? Uh-huh. Grey Stuff?!?
Hold up. We need to clarify something right out of the gate: It’s grey. And it is, technically, stuff (buttercream with bits of chocolate cookie and cream, more specifically). But it’s not actually THE Grey Stuff. Not like real Grey Stuff (which you can currently find at both Disneyland and Disney World).
But this Cookies and Cream buttercream frosting IS super tasty. We can’t knock it for trying to look like… well, you know. And since there’s a TON of this sweet, thick, cookie-speckled buttercream on top of a chocolate cupcake base, it’s a can’t miss.
Plus the ears are ALWAYS a win.
We can’t resist. You shouldn’t either. Because even if it’s not the Grey Stuff, it’s still… wait for it… delicious. 😉
Find it on your coast! It’s at Candy Palace, Trolley Treats, and Pooh Corner at Disneyland Resort; and at Big Top Treats, Confectionery, and Goofy’s Kitchen (and MAYBE Candy Cauldron) at Walt Disney World!
