When you’re in Animal Kingdom, you can keep your eyes peeled for Kevin from Up! in a few ways! She landed on Discovery Island a few weeks ago… (Have you seen her?)
And now she’s been spotted on the Kevin Cupcake! At Warung Outpost in the Asia section of the park, we found this new treat alongside a new cocktail: the Himalayan Explorer. Both are equally eye-catching in color!
The Kevin Cupcake features yellow cake with baked-in sprinkles, and is also filled with strawberry mousse.
It’s topped with a “sky” of blue-colored buttercream, crispy white chocolate pearls to mimic the famous Up! balloons, and fondant accents. An edible chocolate picture of Kevin finishes off the treat.
Parents will probably want to grab plenty of napkins, because — as you can likely anticipate — the vivid hues of this colorful cupcake transfer easily to the hands of the kiddos!
Plus, the classic flavors of vanilla with a hint of strawberry tucked inside have lots of taste appeal for the little ones, too. (And for us big kids, while we’re at it!)
But there is also a new treat at Warung Outpost that’s just for the adults: it’s the Himalayan Explorer cocktail.
This sip takes the Outpost’s regular Strawberry and Mango Margaritas and pours them in layers. The finishing touch is more than a splash of Blue Curacao.
You can see that it’s not just kids getting in on the colorful fun!
But while it’s really cool to look at, the Blue Curacao gives this drink its intense and somewhat syrupy-sweet flavor profile.
You really have to enjoy the taste of it to enjoy this beverage.
So, for my tastes, I’d stick with a straight-up margarita or the Triple Yeti Blast.
In any case, if you’re in need of refreshment in Animal Kingdom’s Asia, be sure to stop by Warung Outpost! Though their staples have remained pretty solid over the years (which, in the case of the Triple Yeti Blast, is a very good thing), they can still surprise from time to time!
