Scones often leave me a little… underwhelmed. If they aren’t done well, they can be dry and bread-y and not very sweet. With so many other awesome treats to try (like cupcakes!), I just struggle to muster much enthusiasm for biscuit’s sometimes-dried-out cousin.
But I might have to eat my words — AND a scone! — because I’ve found one to be pretty darn excited about! It’s the Mickey Birthday Cake Scone!!
So, Happy Birthday — or UN-Birthday — to you and me!
It’s perfectly Mickey shaped, with totally munchable ears. A drizzle of hardened glaze adds some sweetness, and the colorful sprinkles are festive. [Read more…]
It’s time for a fabulous Disney Food Hack! This one’s for all my fellow Ice Cream Sandwich lovers out there — but it’s nothing like the ones you can already snag around the World at spots like Sleepy Hollow and Hollywood Scoops.
Nor is it one of the Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches from L’Artisan des Glaces. OR a Gelato Sandwich from the Gelato Stand in Epcot’s Italy. OR the Double Chocolate ice cream sammie from Tamu Tamu in Animal Kingdom. It doesn’t even involve Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Sandwich (although it is so quintessentially Disney). [Read more…]
We’ve got some classic Disney snacks to share with you from the Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Confectionery!
Main Street Confectionery
Walking down Main Street, you can smell the sugary goodness coming from the Confectionery before you can see its turn-of-the-century facade. And it’s always worth a trip inside to check it out! They have the cutest Disney treats, including chocolate covered cookies, candy covered apples, and gourmet candies in the shapes of our favorite Disney characters.
Even if I don’t want to eat sweets (*cough*NEVERHAPPENS*cough*), I like to stop in to watch the cast members roll the Rice Krispies and dip apples into that sweet chocolate!
And today we’ve got some favorite Confectionery treats to share with you!!!
We’ll start with the Mickey-shaped treats, because I think they’re the most magical.
Cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes. These are three of our favorite words. The only thing that can improve on the word cupcake is to put the word character in front of it. We’ve touted our love of character-inspired cupcakes many, many, so many times. Darth Vader? Check! Lady and the Tramp and Cinderella? Check and check! Elsa? Anna’s Birthay? Olaf? It’s serious bizzness.
So when I saw this little piece of loveliness at the Magic Kingdom Confectionery last week, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. (Like, for real, I couldn’t stop thinking about it until I finally got one.) And there’s no way you can fight the urge this time. So just give in. Say it with us: “We’ll take a Belle Cupcake, please.”
It’s a Belle-Inspired Cupcake, and it. is. everything. Rose? Yellow frosting? PEARLS?!?!?

You can never have too many Disney mugs.
If your kitchen cabinet looks anything like mine, it’s full of mugs and you’re still excited to find more that you “need.” And, I think you’re gonna need one of these new mugs from the Magic Kingdom’s Confectionery on Main Street, U.S.A.
