The Smokehouse – Barbecues and Brews: 2015 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

Head to the American Adventure Courtyard for the barbecue and brews at The Smokehouse — a fan favorite! Bacon cupcakes debuted in 2014 and were a sell-out on the first morning! This year we’re also loving the Smoked Debreziner Sausage with House Made Kraut.

Let’s dig in to the returning hit, the Piggylicious Cupcake. You’ll immediately finds lots of salty, smoky bacon and the bacon is definitely flavoring the cake. The frosting (possibly maple cream cheese) was somewhat grainy from the sugar, while the cake base was less sweet than normal yellow cake. All together it really works though. It tastes like a pancake breakfast with bacon on the side. This is a great surprise. We were not impressed with the pretzels on top; recommend taking them off to dip in the frosting!
