News: Amorette’s Cake Decorating Experience in Disney Springs Now Available For Booking

If you’ve paid a visit to Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs, then you’ve likely spent more than a few minutes taking in all the gorgeous dome cakes on display.

And if you’ve ever wondered, “How do they DO that?…” well, now you have the chance to find out for yourself! The Amorette’s Cake Decorating Experience is now available for booking on Friday mornings from March 31 through May 5, 2017.

Guests will learn the culinary technique used to decorate Amorette’s signature Mickey Dome Cake. This 90-minute class starts in Amorette’s Show Kitchen at 9:00 am (before the bakery opens to the public). The instructor for the class will share stories, tips, and describe the process of decorating an Amorette’s Dome Cake from initial design to the finished product.

Specifically, participants will learn how to pour the glacage and coat the ears, tail, belt, and buttons on Mickey with edible paint.

Capped at 12 guests per class, this small-group experience will include non-alcoholic and — for guests 21 and over — alcoholic refreshments. Guests will take their Mickey masterpiece with them upon completing the class (or Amorette’s will gladly hold cakes by request for pick up later in the day). [Read more…]

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!
