Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story Cupcake At Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World is the place to go if you like changes because with Toy Story Land set to open on June 30 and construction continuing in earnest on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, there’s no shortage of new on the ever-expanding horizon.

And the latest addition to the Star Wars universe — spin-off Solo: A Star Wars Story — has inspired a brand new cupcake at Hollywood Studios’ go-to locale for pastries and sweets: Trolley Car Café.

Trolley Car Cafe is now open!

Trolley Car Cafe is the place to go for pastries in Hollywood Studios!

Solo: A Star Wars Story Cupcake is billed as cookies and cream with cookie crumble buttercream. And this is one for the chocolate lovers out there!

The Solo Cupcake is impressive in the pastry case, with a soaring chocolate piece and lots of shimmering rocks.

The shimmering chocolate rocks add a lot of interest to the cupcake. Don’t they look otherworldly?

Inside the rocks is solid milk chocolate, and the way they’re packed on there, the Solo Cupcake satisfies even the biggest sweet tooth.

The frosting is cookie crumble buttercream — basically a really prominent cookies-and-cream.

Maybe this cross-section will illuminate just how much of the frosting there is on there because it’s very nearly 50/50 with the cake!

The cake is described as cookies-and-cream, but it’s a really dense chocolate with no hint of cookie bits. So if it’s made with Oreo cookies, they’re thoroughly incorporated.

And even though we kind of bemoaned the melty chocolate piece, it actually looks pretty cool in profile.

    As I sit here eating my baby carrots and cottage cheese I am pretending that they are really this cupcake and my mouth is watering!

    Unfortunately, I doubt it will still be around when we go back in February :(
