A reader/cast member tipped me off to some new cupcakes being offered over at the Boardwalk Bakery!! While these may change monthly or seasonally, I just had to share ’em with you!
Interestingly, the Oreo cupcake is a yellow vanilla cake (who’d a thunk it?) with vanilla frosting. A ribbon of Oreo crumbs coats the bottom of the frosting, and two little Oreos make a Mickey Mouse out of the whole thing.
The Oreos stuck into the top were, of course, soggy. I wish they’d stick them in right before boxing up the cupcake, but I get that you need to see the Mickey effect before you purchase as it’s part of the sales strategy… .
Once you cut into the cupcake, though, the true silver lining is revealed. A thick, rich cookies and cream frosting fills the inside of the cupcake! This is the lard-y buttercream we love, my friends!! A great addition to the snack, bringing it from a 5 to an 8 out of 10 on my cupcake scale.
Now, while I did enjoy this cupcake, I was ecstatic over the NEXT one…
Peanut Butter Cupcake
Oh my heavens.
This might go down in the books as my favorite cupcake on property. It might even bump that Butterfinger Cupcake out of the top spot if the frosting continues to be the rich, thick version I tasted during this review. Seriously.
What makes it so good, you ask? The. Frosting. Tastes. Like. Cookie. Dough. No kidding. The peanut butter frosting has the taste and texture of peanut butter cookie dough. It is outstanding.
And inside? The don’t mess around with chocolate frosting, no sir. More peanut butter frosting.
Now, I know there are some of you who don’t like peanut butter. There are even some of you who don’t like chocolate. And if that’s you — my heart breaks for you! And… can I have your cupcake?
Both of these can be purchased with a snack credit. Check out our other favorite Disney cupcakes!
