Today, we stopped by Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge to check out a restaurant that recently extended its hours!
In honor of our lovely feathered friends that reside at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, we grabbed the Flamingo Cake.
The Flamingo Cake is a plant-based chocolate spice cake with coconut ganache! It was also topped with crunchy bits and a chocolate swirl. But honestly, it could have tricked us! Not only could we not really tell this was plant-based, but the spiced cake was a welcomed surprise as well.
The flavors of the spice cake honestly reminded us of Christmastime. We could really taste the cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, which blended really nicely with the chocolate. The coconut ganache didn’t have an especially strong flavor, and it contributed to the overall moistness of the cake.
The cake was really rich, in a good, filling way. It was also a really great portion for its $4.79 price tag. The crunchy bits on top of the cake were tart and added a fun pop of color! And the chocolate swirl was a nice, tiny nod to the flamingos nearby.
We were pleasantly surprised with this treat and would definitely order it again! Animal Kingdom Lodge is definitely off the beaten path, but if you’re stopping by, it’s worth checking out! But, be warned that kids may not like the spice flavor. Luckily, there are other options on the menu (like the Nyala Brownie which we also LOVE) that are kid-friendly.
