The Easter season is hopping along at Walt Disney World, and All-Star Movies’ World Premiere Food Court has a new Bunny Cupcake that’s head over heels excited for the upcoming holiday.
Sprinkles Cupcakes has made a name for itself by serving up delicious cupcakes, but this spot — located in both Disneyland’s Downtown Disney and Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs — also has a lot of fun with seasonal cupcakes. This time of year, it’s all about Easter!
The “Easter Candy Series” features limited release cupcakes with a new offering each week. [Read more…]
And we were excited to break the news that the loaded waffles were back at this quick-service staple recently, too!
Well, the pastry wizards at Roaring Fork are at it again, this time bringing the flavor with the Chocolate Peppermint cupcake of the month.
Can’t get enough Mickey-shaped treats this Halloween season? We brought you the scoop on festive fall treats available in Walt Disney World, and now we’re coming at ya with a review on this spooky, sweet treat from Trolley Car Cafe in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Need to know more about this pumpkin-inspired dessert? We’ve got you covered.
Officially named Chocolate Cake – topped with chocolate mousse and chocolate Mickey ears, this dessert consists of a mini chocolate cake topped with chocolate mousse, orange and black glaze, and chocolate Mickey ears. Anyone else feel like they missed an opportunity to call this Mickey Mousse? No, just us? 🙂
Happy Happy Holidays, Everyone!
If we weren’t quite feeling the Holiday Spirit yet, that all changed the other night as we took in the very first performance of Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
I know, I know. We all dearly miss the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights just as much as you do. Let’s take a moment to reflect. (Somber music playing. Or something.)
Ok — is it out of our system? I hope so. Because we have some pretty cool stuff to share with you, starting with a look at some of the awesome decor you can spy around Studios. Let’s head in! [Read more…]
WOO HOO!!! We’re back at the Electric Umbrella in Epcot’s Future World!
Too much? Okay — I get it. It can be hard to muster up a ton of enthusiasm for the ol’ Umbrella. That’s not so much because of anything specifically wrong with it, per se.
But when your neighbors include counter service options like Katsura Grill, Tangierine Cafe, and Sommerfest just to name a few…well, the more standard options available at Electric Umbrella can pale in comparison. Even if you pit it against fellow Future World counter service option Sunshine Seasons, it’s gonna seem ho-hum.
But we’ve got to give some credit where it’s due. Over the past few years, the menu at Electric Umbrella has seen more changes than many other spots. Some have been successful (French Dip Burger!), and some not so much (Mac and Cheese Burger). In other words, there’s been some innovation here. (You might even call it innovention. 😉 )
Since our last meal here, there have been even more menu updates. So clearly, it was time for another visit. [Read more…]
Boo to You! It’s Halloween Week, and the Disney seasonal treats just keep coming!
Today, we’re showing you a fun Fall find from The Mara at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
I love me some candy corn, but when you combine candy corn and Cupcakes? Even better!
Candy Corn Cupcake
So, Disney World has some hidden gems that keep churning out awesome eats that you’d never expect. Places like Sleepy Hollow and Friar’s Nook in the Magic Kingdom, and Landscape of Flavors at Art of Animation Resort tend to be little hot-beds of creativity when it comes to snacks and must-eat treats. The Mara at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge also fits into this category, featuring some seriously great baked goods on a regular basis (like the Chocolate Raspberry Mickey Tart).
And so I give you the Candy Corn Cupcake — with Oreo Mickey Ears, even!!
Mounded high with thick Buttercream Frosting in Candy Corn’s traditional tri-color pattern, the cupcake is trimmed out with orange-tinted White Chocolate Curls for even more visual impact.
This is all piled on top of dark Chocolate Cake. But when you cut into the cupcake, you’ll find a little surprise hidden inside.
Now, to be honest, I’m not completely sure what this is. There is definitely chopped up [Read more…]
We are back with another installment of Disney Food Pics of the Week. Thanks to all of you super talented photographers who post on Disney Food Blog Photo Extravaganza, our Flickr group!
Today, we’re celebrating what I think should be classified as a fifth food group. That’s right — we are all about Cupcakes in today’s post! Be sure to check out some of our favorite Disney Cupcakes in our Cupcake Gallery…but in the meantime, we’ve got some sweets to share…!
Honey Lemon Cupcake
The Honey Lemon Cupcake from Disneyland’s Hungry Bear restaurant has to be one of the cutest cupcakes I’ve seen at Disney to date. Topped with a sweet little honey bee and a sprinkle of edible gold glitter, you find the same delish frosting that crowns it also serves as a filling! (Read a review of the cupcake, plus other menu items at Hungry Bear, here.)

Everything Pop Food Court
Thanks to reader Susan T., we have a bit of seriously rad information for you: The King Cupcake recently debuted at the Pop Century Resort at Walt Disney World in the Everything Pop food court! As a tribute to Elvis Presley, the cupcake features all of the flavors from the King’s renowned favorite sandwich:
- Chocolate Cupcake
- Banana Custard Filling
- Peanut Butter Frosting
- Candied Bacon
- Chocolate Drizzle
This is totally a big hunk ‘o love, right?! Can you believe that?!?
Susan sent along this review — scroll down to see her pic!:
The cupcake was nice and moist. I would’ve liked a bit more banana custard inside, but it was nice and tasty. The peanut butter icing was to die for. You really need to like peanut butter, which I do — so I loved the icing.
It was my first time eating candied bacon. It was [Read more…]
Mardi Gras is in full swing over at Disneyland, and the park is celebrating with foods prepared especially for the New Orleans Bayou Bash. I got some great photos of some of the specialty items! Take for example, this fine cheesecake. We’ll discuss it in a bit.
Bayou Bash Specs
A quick visit to the French Market proved to be well worth my while. I had already eaten dinner (Plaza Inn Fried Chicken trumped French Market), but I did want to visit New Orleans Square for a special Bayou Bash dessert.
While in the French Market, I was able to check out their special menu for the event, which runs this weekend and continues March 2-4 and March 9-11.
There were two special entrees featured on the night I was there. The Creole Mustard French Style Sausage Sandwich, which was described as Chicken-pork sausage seasoned with cognac, creole mustard, and remoulade sauce served on a brioche roll with [Read more…]
