NEW: Turtle Cupcake at Contempo Café in Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Time to head over to Disney’s Contemporary Resort for this new cupcake!

August’s cupcake at Contempo is a Turtle Cupcake featuring everyone’s favorite kid turtle, Squirt! Radical, Dude! 

Contempo Café is known for its totally awesome cupcake selection! The Café, if you’re not familiar, is the counter-service restaurant in the Contemporary Resort, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the Grand Canyon Concourse near the popular character buffet, Chef Mickey’s.

The restaurant has great options like Cajun Seared Mahi and Chicken Alfredo Pasta — and you can’t miss the amazing Pot Roast! And breakfast here features one of our favorite giant Mickey waffles, because it’s served with salty caramel bananas foster sauce.

But today, we’re going to focus on this month’s Squirt cupcake – sweeeeeet!

Rich chocolate cake is topped with dense chocolate frosting that is dark enough to be mistaken for bittersweet chocolate (especially when spied in the bakery case), but reminds me more of chocolate fudge in both flavor and consistency. YUM.
