Review: Ghost Cupcake at Disney’s BoardWalk Bakery

The Boardwalk Bakery is scaring up some Halloween fun this year. Our twitter followers wanted to see what was inside this Ghost Cupcake! (And, let’s be honest, I did, too!)

No stranger to unique treats of any sort (Peanut Butter, Banana, and Candied Bacon Pie, anyone?), the BoardWalk Bakery has earned its place as a go-to stop for cupcake gems — both seasonal and otherwise.

We’re talking everything from the Red (Velvet), White, and Blue Cupcake to celebrate this past Fourth of July to the recently made-over staples: the Strawberry Cupcake and the (soon to be reviewed here on DFB) Oreo Cupcake. So, it’s not exactly a surprise that the newly renovated Bakery would conjure up a little something (see what I did there?) to commemorate Halloween.

Taking it from the very top, our little ghost friend is formed of fondant, just like the Ghost Cupcake featured at Gaston’s Tavern at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. While technically edible, it’s not recommended. He’s really there for decoration and — clearly — a super high fright factor ;).

Also like Gaston’s version, his ghostly form is supported by a (totally edible!) marshmallow tucked underneath.

Review: Halloween Desserts and New Dinner Menu Items at Be Our Guest Restaurant

Please welcome back DFB author Wendy with a review of Halloween at Be Our Guest Restaurant!

It’s time to dine once again with the Beast in his Castle for dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant in New Fantasyland in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom!

Even though Be Our Guest will celebrate its first birthday next month, it’s still fun to take in the sight of the Ballroom (especially for that hard-to-snag Advance Dining Reservation!).

No matter where you’re seated, you should definitely take a minute to stroll a bit and take in all of the amazing detail. Now it is, of course, October -– the month of ghouls, goblins, and all things foreboding — so it seemed somehow fitting when our party was placed in the West Wing, the only room that was off-limits to Belle in Beauty and the Beast.

This room is darker than the others, with dark tapestries and ornate seating.

Fans of the movie will remember that this is where the Beast’s Enchanted Rose resides. Guests can watch the rose slowly losing its petals throughout their meal!
