Challenge Accepted: How One Family Completed the 2018 DFB Cupcake Crawl!

Y’all, when we issued the 2018 Walt Disney World Cupcake Crawl Challenge a couple weeks ago, we knew it had the potential to be a deliciously fun activity for our amazing DFB readers — but we didn’t know just how adorable it could be!

You’ll recall that the challenge included fourteen of our favorite Walt Disney World cupcakes — plus a few bonus items that we just couldn’t help adding. The Rose Gold Cupcake sold at Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion at Epcot has been a particular fan favorite — even with a whole bunch of rose gold treats popping up every. where.
