Food Challenge: The DFB Holiday Cupcake Crawl

When I started thinking about what to get you for the holidays, it came to me in a flash: what could be more perfect than a brand new food challenge?

You can follow the path that we lay out for you, or you can can choose to mix in a few entries from the 2012 Cupcake Crawl. (Heck, we’ll even let you choose a cake or two from the 2011 challenge!)

Remember, many of these cupcakes can be purchased with a Disney Dining Plan snack credit, so be sure to stock up and save them for this important undertaking!
