Snack Series: “Frozen” Cupcake at Contempo Cafe in Disney’s Contemporary Resort

It’s Disney Cupcake Time! And for this round of sweet snacking, we’re checking out Contempo Cafe, one of our favorite spots to snag one of these mammoth snacks!

Located steps away from Magic Kingdom — or a convenient stop on the Resort Monorail line — Contempo Cafe is a great spot to grab a delicious lunch or dinner under the soaring atrium of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. If you’re looking for real sustenance, try their Beef Pot Roast or Hot Smoked Turkey Sandwich.

But it’s also a great stop on any Cupcake Crawl! While you can usually find a classic or two in their case, like the Red Velvet Cupcake, it’s always fun to see their new and seasonal varieties as well!

We’ve shown you the Frozen Cupcake before…but this time I get to review it for realz.

Nope — the cupcake isn’t frozen. Elsa is here in name only.

The streaky Blue Frosting, the Dark Chocolate Cupcake, and the Elsa (or other cast member) Ring and Snowflake Garnish all make for striking visual impact.

Yep, when I was there I got to choose from several different Frozen cast members to adorn my cupcake. Sven, Kristoff, Elsa… take your pick. And that special plastic ring is settled into a plain vanilla buttercream frosting that’s — typical of Contempo Cafe — a little lighter than you may find elsewhere in the parks and resorts.

It’s kind of a cross between the consistency of “lard-y” buttercream and whipped cream. You guys know how I feel about frosting, and I’m not opposed to this variety, it’s just not my favorite.

Review: Frost “Frozen” Cupcake at Disney’s Contempo Cafe

We’re huge fans of the Contempo Cafe at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

After all, their bakery case features some truly unique gourmet cupcakes (Dulce de Leche, for one!).

My good friend, Elantrice — many of you know her as Diz Thru Brown Eyes — recently discovered the Frost Cupcake; clearly inspired by Disney’s award-winning “Frozen”.

Before we dig in — check out the icy blue frosting and snowy sprinkles!

“It was wonderful. Cake was moist and I loved the caramel inside,” she said! (I love the reminder that the plastic ring is non-edible!)
