A whole bunch of Briar Rose Gold treats can currently be found across counter service locations in Disney World Resort hotels in celebration of the latest Disney color craze.
The first quarter of 2019 is complete, and it’s time to get down to business. Of course, we mean cupcakes and the business of our 2019 Cupcake Crawl! But let’s address the buttercream in the room: with only three months under our (cupcake-filled) belts, we’re going to need to come back in a few months with a some new additions — so be on the lookout for the summer’s updated crawl! 😉
Come along as we list cupcakes you’ve got to try (so far!!) in 2019!
Peanut Butter Crunch Cupcake
Our first entry in the Cupcake Crawl is a little loaded, and that’s because it’s an old favorite with a slightly new look (and taste!). The Peanut Butter Crunch Cupcake (a/k/a the Butterfinger Cupcake) has been a DFB favorite for years. The chocolate cake filled with dense chocolate ganache and topped with peanut butter frosting and crushed Butterfinger really worked for our PB&C obsession. But in January of this year… the Peanut Butter Crunch Cupcake disappeared from Trolley Car Cafe! (Read more about that here!) And when it returned recently, the cupcake had a whole new look.
Gone is the massive mountain of frosting covered in plentiful Butterfinger bits, replaced by a moderately sized pile of frosting covered in Butterfinger bits. Gone (maybe?) is the dense chocolate filling — now it’s more of a chocolate sauce filling. [Read more…]
This week we hopped on the monorail for a tour of all the resorts around Seven Seas Lagoon! We stopped by the Grand Floridian to check out their yearly Easter Egg display, checked out the latest cupcake to arrive at Contempo Cafe in the Contemporary Resort, and sipped on the new spiked Dole Whip drink at the Polynesian!
First, let’s head to the Grand Floridian for some special springtime treats!
In fact, it has been a few months since we went to Contempo Cafe for something other than a cupcake! But when I stopped by today (yes, for a cupcake) I noticed something new to me on the menu: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup. Well, twist my arm – I just had to order it.
But, don’t worry… I found a fun cupcake too. 😉 Read on to find out more!
The Grilled Cheese is made with three cheeses – Fontina, Monterrey Jack, and Boursin Garlic & Fine Herb – and is on Sourdough Bread. It is served with Tomato Bisque and your choice of fries, homemade chips, or veggie slaw. I opted for the homemade chips.
It’s the day before Valentine’s Day, and we’re celebrating it in a wicked way at Disney World’s Contemporary Resort… join us for Villaintine’s Day!!
Why the celebration? Because, as Disney reminds us, “without Disney Villains, there would be no Disney heroes!” So this dastardly day is being honored with specialty desserts at the Contempo Café and drinks at the Outer Rim lounge for TODAY ONLY.
So, let’s head to the Contemporary Resort’s 4th floor to see what evil is brewing, starting in Contempo Cafe’s confectionery case… [Read more…]
Happy almost Villaintine’s Day! What is Villaintine’s Day, you ask? Why, it’s the day before Valentine’s Day when Disney World’s Contemporary Resort is celebrating Disney Villains with some very special treats for one day only!
While at the Contempo Cafe, one of our favorite quick service locations on property, we spotted the new Firework Cupcake, and we just had to try this to see if it was a taste explosion or a disappointing dud.
The first thing that attracted us to this cupcake was its chocolate paint splattered Mickey Hat! Then the name drew our attention followed by the description of the flavors.
Potion Purple Minnie Mouse Ears have hit the Disney scene in full force! You’ll find the Ears available in both Disney World and Disneyland (if they haven’t been snagged from the shelves already, that is).
And so far, there’s one place where you can match your newest Potion Purple Ears with a coordinating treat! [Read more…]
We love us some cupcakes here at the Disney Food Blog (check out our Disney Cupcake Challenge!), and no year in review could possibly be complete without an ode to some of our favorites!
So for your delicious viewing pleasure: DFB’s Favorite Cupcakes of 2018!
Oh, yes. The year in cupcakes kicked off in high gear with the grandest cupcake of them all: the Rose Gold Cupcake! We found this beauty way back in January at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot’s Future World, and then rose gold treats suddenly began appearing everywhere!
We didn’t hate the rose gold trend. We were in for the ears, the spirit jerseys, and — especially — the cupcakes! This one from Main Street Bakery was a big hit due to all. that. frosting!
