The sparkliest cupcake this side of the Seven Seas Lagoon just got a late autumn makeover!
You may recall the Rocky Road Cupcake, which glittered and glistened its way back into Captain Cook’s at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort this year as one of the many Halloween treats that hit the scene. Though Spooky Season has ended (and, ICYMI, the holidays are pretty much HERE!), you can still enjoy it… but in a new way!
The Rocky Road Cupcake is now all decked out for the remainder of fall. And it is dressed to impress, if I do say!
Once again, a chocolate cupcake base is totally stacked with layers of buttercream frosting, and filled with a milk chocolate-macadamia nut “rocky road” filling.
It’s that frosting that makes all the difference in the appearance.

While the classic buttercream flavor remains, the bright purple and green have been changed for the more autumnal — but still vivid — yellow and red. Only orange remains from the previous look, tucked in as the bottom layer.
In place of the little bats and ghosts are colorful leaves… and a lovely frosting flower atop the not-so-hidden Minnie completes the look!
A hint of nutty flavor and marshmallow completes this chocolate-upon-chocolate cake, and fans of Rocky Road will likely enjoy the cake version of this classic ice cream!
According to a cast member, this version should stick around for awhile, so be sure to check out the chilled items at Captain Cook’s the next time you stop by! Remember, Captain Cook’s accepts Mobile Order, but you can always chat with a cast member if you have a question about ordering… or simply want to check out the latest cupcake greatness that comes out of Captain Cook’s!
ALOHA from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort!
