As you may have noticed 😉 , we’ve been spending all day enjoying the early debut of treats for the Flurry of Fun at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Though the holiday event officially kicks off on November 8th, most of the treats and even lots of the entertainment is in soft opening right now!
One of the returning snacks to the Flurry this year is the Prep and Landing Cupcake, which you’ll find at Rosie’s All-American Cafe on Sunset Boulevard.
We’re calling this the “2018 version” because the cupcake itself is still made up of a gingerbread base.
And, of course, it still features a candy Lanny and Wayne from Prep and Landing on the top.
But there are two not-so-subtle differences this year! First — it’s hard not to notice — is the super-duper-VERY-bright-and-vivid RED buttercream icing on the top. (Last year, and in years prior, the frosting was white and flavored with cream cheese as a comparison.)
Plus, it has a sweet filling, which is where you’ll encounter some of that cream cheese flavor this year.
So, the tasty and classic spiced gingerbread and cream cheese combo remain. Seeing as there’s always been a gingerbread cupcake for the holidays at Hollywood Studios, it would definitely be missed if it didn’t find its way back in some form or fashion.
That said, we’re not fans of the new red icing… like, at all.
While it adds no additional flavor, the coloring of the icing somewhat mars the experience, because it gets everywhere, and doesn’t easily come off your hands after the fact.
So, we’re hoping for the return of the classic cream cheese icing next year. And in the meantime, we’re enjoying LOTS of other treats at the Flurry of Fun!!!
