The minute Rose Gold Minnie Ears hit Disney Parks merchandise locations, the shops could not — and still can not — keep them on the shelves! Folks spent time hovering online waiting for updates about their return and scarfing them up in numbers. You could say they’re kindofa BIG DEAL.

Well, Disney has continued the trend. Only this time, they’ve done so in CUPCAKE form! Currently at Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion (in Epcot’s Future World), guests can find the Rose Gold Ears Cupcake! And, we’ll admit, it’s gorgeous. Every bit as pretty as those namesake Ears.

And perhaps you’ve noticed… there’s a TON of frosting on this baby! It’s vanilla buttercream — no cream cheese or other added flavors here.

The cake itself is vanilla and chocolate marble and just what we’ve come to expect from a Disney cupcake.

The rose gold ears and bow are fondant, so you’ll mostly get sugar with maybe a hint of marshmallow flavor from the garnish. But remember, even though it’s technically edible… fondant never wins any flavor contests. Its primary role is for looks, and here it is accomplishing its task quite well!

Tasty, Instagram-ready, and loaded with frosting… what more could you want in a cupcake? Hopefully it will stick around at Sunshine Seasons for least a bit longer than the actual Rose Gold Ears have been able to stay on the shelves!

    If they had to come up with a product as a spin off to those beautiful, so popular $$ Minnie Ears, what could have been better than a cupcake????? :)

    Remember those amazing cupcakes at Starring Rolls back in the day.
    They were chocolate sponge, had sprinkles on the top and a ganache-like frosting… I would give anything to go back in time to them…
    Tangent there…

    These look fun though! And I managed to actually get Rose Gold Ears on my last trip – I’m sure wearing them while eating would enhance the experience further. (and generate like 1095 pictures :-))
