Ooh, y’all, have we got some news for you in the world of Magic Kingdom seasonal desserts! These are the desserts that come and go as the seasons progress, causing us both joy (Yea! New flavors!) and heartache (No! I have to wait another year for my favorite pumpkin everything!).
In this case, we are rejoicing because Red Velvet Cake is now available in the Magic Kingdom!
We found ours at Friar’s Nook, but it’s also available as a dessert item at Pecos Bill’s. At Friar’s Nook, we’re pretty used to seeing these seasonal delights come and go, so we can’t promise this beauty will be available forever. But for now, it’s fantastic.
We love that these cakes come with a plastic lid because they make a great stowaway to snack on throughout the day.
Like the Triple Chocolate Cake with Mickey sprinkles we find almost everywhere at Disney World, the Red Velvet Cake is a circular piece of cake slathered with icing.
The frosting, as per traditional red velvet concoctions, is cream cheese. And there is a TON of it here.
In case that wasn’t enticing enough, the cream cheese icing melts into the cake a bit, making it extra moist and gooey. So, so awesome.
Atop the cream cheese icing, you’ll find teeny, tiny cake “flakes” that really show off that red color.
This cake is a total win, folks. It costs $4.29 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit, but the freshness and texture were spot on perfection.
