Is it really a holiday if Disney doesn’t make a cupcake to celebrate?
Over the past few months, we spotted cupcakes for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and way too many to count for Christmas (including one with a cool hidden Mickey)! But, if you’ve been around a while, you know that Disney cupcakes are kinda our “thing,” so we don’t typically complain when we get to try one. Today we stopped by the BoardWalk Bakery to try their New Year’s cupcake, and we have a few things to say about it!
The latest in seasonal cupcakes at the BoardWalk Bakery is the Strawberry and Champagne cupcake!
Here to celebrate the New Year, the cupcake is topped with Mickey ears, a 2021 decoration, crispy pearls, and white chocolate shavings around the edge. It’s honestly super cute!
The flavors intrigued us…strawberry and champagne sounds pretty delicious in a cupcake (in fact, Sprinkles had a cupcake that was similar a while back), so we were definitely excited to try this one. The cake is vanilla and the icing tasted pretty basic, so most of the fun is in the filling.
When we tried the filling we could clearly taste the strawberry, but the champagne flavor was noticeably absent! We were honestly a little disappointed, because we thought the two flavors would blend really well together.
It was a pretty delicious cupcake overall, and the strawberry was nice, but we really missed the champagne! Without that extra flavor, it ended up being a tad boring.
Sans champagne, it’s just a vanilla cupcake with regular frosting and a strawberry filling. Kids would probably enjoy this one, but if you’re looking for something really exciting and different, this one missed the mark for us.
If you still want to try it out for yourself, then pick one up from the BoardWalk Bakery for $5.99. Stay tuned to DFB as we continue to share snack reviews on Disney’s latest and greatest!
