It’s that time of the year — time to celebrate all the great mothers out there!
If you just so happen to be treating your mom by taking her to Disney World this weekend, then you’re going to want to check out some of the limited-time Mother’s Day treats in the parks and resorts. We’ve tested out a lot of them so far, and now we’re about to try one more!
Over at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, there’s a brand-new cupcake at Capt. Cook’s! The Mother’s Day Butterfly Cupcake is here from May 7th-9th to celebrate the special occasion.
What’s it made of? It’s chocolate cupcake with passionfruit custard topped with whipped icing! Now, you’ll want to note that both the packaging and the My Disney Experience app describe this treat incorrectly. It is not a white chocolate cake, and there’s definitely no raspberry mousse filling!
So let’s dig into this thing! The cake is rich, moist, and super chocolatey. We really enjoyed it! We also loved how it paired with that passionfruit custard.
Now, let’s talk about that custard! It has a thick consistency and tastes oh-so-good. We’re talkin’ tart, creamy, and viscous. YUM! FYI, it does taste more like pineapple than passionfruit to us, but it was still delicious.

Kids probably won’t enjoy this one due to the strong taste of the custard. But if you like chocolate cake and tart, tropical fruit flavors, you’ll want to give this a try! You can snag it for $5.99 from now through May 9th. In the meantime, stay tuned to DFB for more Disney food updates and reviews!
