I had so much fun during my recent visit to Walt Disney World.
What’s not to love about Disney at the Holidays? It was such a gorgeous — and delicious! — trip.
Let’s take a look and then I want to hear what you think!
Strawberry Cheesecake Holiday Cupcake at BoardWalk Bakery
See, the “seasonal cupcake” at the beginning of my visit was a pumpkin spice version, and I just KNEW it would switch over to a holiday option during my trip. Sure enough, about two days before I left property this lovely treat showed up.
Upon chatting up one of the awesome Cast Members, I learned that the cupcake was Dark Chocolate Cake with a Strawberry Cheesecake Filling.
For some reason I was super impressed by the crunchy chocolate toppers that were all glittery. Why? Who can say? I just thought they were cool. And that adorable white chocolate star was perfect on top.
But enough about Chocolate Pearls that double as ornaments and White Chocolate Gold Stars. At the end of the day, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. (See? That works for people and cupcakes.)
Under a crown of super light and fluffy Whipped Cream (belch, blech, blech), you’ll find Super Dark Chocolate Cake.
And hidden inside — yep, there it is — a thick Strawberry Cheesecake Filling.
The filling itself was only slightly less dense than actual cheesecake. I was really impressed with its consistency.
And the flavor? Well, non-traditional holiday-ness aside — it was good! I’m a big fan of fruit and chocolate combos, and a filling inside a cupcake is always a welcome addition.
Besides, have I mentioned how utterly adorable it is? Really, you can’t not.
