Tucked inside the Contempo Café bakery case in Disney World’s Contemporary Resort is a new cupcake.
Just peek inside the case and you’ll see the Banana Caramel Cupcake, identifiable by the bonus mini macarons on top! (It’s $5.49 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit.)
A caramel cake base is topped with a caramel and banana buttercream icing, plus a banana chip, colored sugar, and a mini macaron for an extra something sweet.
The flavor emphasis is definitely on the banana in the icing. We actually didn’t pick up too much caramel at all, either in the icing or in the cake base which came across with more of a basic vanilla flavor, only a little sweeter. But that may be because there is even more banana on the way…
… with a light and creamy banana filling! This is definitely one for those who love banana out there; this is a great pick for you! Altogether, the whole thing is reminiscent of a really good banana pudding (and as much as the macaron is a cute and tasty touch, I almost would’ve preferred to see a vanilla wafer cookie as the accent piece to mirror that classic dessert).
So, if you love bananas, get ready to go bananas over this new cupcake at the Contemporary!
