New Soundsational Cupcake in Disneyland

The new Soundsational Parade has debuted in Disneyland and there’s a specialty cupcake to commemorate it!

The cupcake has marbled vanilla cake (yellow, blue, and red) with marbled pineapple raspberry frosting. The whole thing is covered in a light dusting of edible glitter and topped off with a white chocolate Soundsational Mickey icon.

The folks at Magical Days With Mouse found this one at Blue Ribbon Bakery and had positive reviews!

The Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcake

There really is no cupcake like a red velvet cupcake. Rich, red velvet cake, smooth, tangy-sweet cheesecake…

And it’s like Christmas came early this year at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, because Starring Rolls Cafe has taken the perfection of the Red Velvet Cupcake and made it just a little bit better.

What Disney Foods Do YOU Crave?

Well, I’ve been home from Walt Disney World for two weeks now, and I’m already craving some dishes and snacks I know I’m going to have on my next trip (um…Karamell Kuche, anyone?).

So, a while back, I asked over on the Disney Food Blog Facebook Page: What Disney Dish Are You Craving Today? I got some fantastic answers! Let’s take a trip down a delicious road of favorite dishes and menu items in Walt Disney World… (Note: You’ll see some sad news about the Jiko Filet with Mac and Cheese about halfway down the page. I’m just warning you.)

A Few of the Classics…

With all the changes in Disney World’s menus lately, it’s nice to know these favorites have been around for a good long time:

Deconstructing a Karamell-Küche Cupcake
