Time to take a look at the new speciality cupcake at the Boardwalk Bakery in Disney World!
OK, OK — I realize that it basically looks like you’ll need a whole pallet of toothpaste to get the purple stain off your teeth. Agreed. But when we saw this sweet treat in the bakery case at the Boardwalk Bakery we knew we had to try it. It’s our job after all, right? So here’s what happened… .
We were told that the cupcake was banana flavored when we first got it. OK, cool. I like a good banana cupcake. But that crazy purple frosting was so…off-putting. This is either a purple potion cupcake or a Briar Rose Gold cupcake…or both? We have no idea. ;-D Maybe it’s a twofer!
The cupcake is topped with metallic candied crisps, edible glitter, that crazy blue and purple buttercream and a pink and purple white chocolate bow. My middle-school self is screaming.
So we cut into it to reveal the suggested banana, and…SURPRISE!
The inside is filled with lemon curd and blueberries! Um…that’s my favorite combo ever! (Rivaled only by chocolate and peanut butter… .) And it WAS truly delicious.
The creamy lemon curd was the right mix of sweet and tart, and the blueberries added an unexpected burst of sweetness. I liked the different textures that the two fillings offered together — it really raised this cupcake to a higher level than what we were expecting for sure.
We would give this cupcake three thumbs up if we could (minus the cost of the toothpaste pallet). So, if you find yourself strolling along the Boardwalk or eating at Trattoria al Forno, make sure to stop by the Boardwalk Bakery to try this limited time specialty cupcake. The cupcake is $5.99 and can be used as a Disney Dining Plan snack credit!
