DFB’s Top 10 Disney Food News Stories of 2016

Happy New Year, DFB Friends!

Let’s face it: 2016 handed us some real bummers. But there were some good things that happened, too. And that’s especially true where Disney Food is concerned.

Review: NEW Mickey Mousse and Snowball Cake Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs

We are stopping into Amorette’s Patisserie today to see what’s new!

The high-end pastry shop has showcased classy pastries from the beginning. Combining classic flavors with new and creating some of the most beautiful sugary confections we’ve ever seen, Amorette’s has been an interesting addition to Disney Springs.

Why “interesting?” Well, the DFB team is split on whether or not we love this place. Some of us think it’s great; others aren’t impressed. While the eats are extraordinarily beautiful, I, personally, am not necessarily sure that they’re worth the extraordinarily high price tag.

But on a recent visit we simply had to try out the brand new — and gorgeous — Mickey mousse, introduced in honor of Mickey Mouse’s birthday, and the holiday Snowball.

Mickey Mousse and a Snowball

When Mickey Mouse celebrated his most recent birthday, some pretty awesome treats debuted in Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

But this Petit Mickey Domed Cake at Amorette’s was a showstopper. Originally the cake was reported to feature Chocolate Chiffon Cake, Milk Chocolate Mousse,  and Orange Blossom Pâte de Fruit.

I was a bit afraid that the sweet little treat would disappear soon, since it was a special offering for Mickey’s special day. But the cast members told us that the cake is here to stay!

While we enjoy all of the variety when it comes to ice cream in Walt Disney World, there are a few treats that we especially crave every time we’re at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. Who can resist a Homemade Ice Cream Sandwich drizzled with toppings!?! And their hand-scooped sundaes are classic.

We just love bringing you along on our DFB food travels as we explore all the culinary magic that Disney has to offer! And if you think that sounds like a good time too, please be sure to subscribe to our new DFB YouTube Channel!
