Disney World is welcoming a lot of guests right now for the long holiday weekend. In fact, we’re hearing reports that travel to Orlando this Memorial Day Weekend is close to 2019 tourism levels!
If you happen to be one of those many travelers in Disney World over the next few days, we found a specialty cupcake at Capt. Cook’s at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to commemorate the upcoming holiday.
The Memorial Day Cupcake, available on Mobile Order, is a Vanilla Cupcake with White Chocolate Mousse, Buttercream Icing and Blueberry Compote Swirl Filling, topped with Red, White and Blue Sprinkles, Blueberries and a Raspberry!
It’s a beautiful red, white, and blue-themed treat to kick off the summer season! But did it taste as wonderful as it looked?
Fair WARNING before you take a bite: this cupcake comes with a LOT of filling and a LOT of icing and is pretty messy! Grab extra napkins and perhaps a fork.
We typically find that cupcakes from the Polynesian rival perfection, but this one was a bit dry for our taste. While we’re typically thrilled to find lots of filling (and the center is definitely the best part of this cupcake), we would have actually preferred MORE cake with this treat.
The blueberry filling is a great balance of sweet and tart, but unfortunately, it’s overpowered by that white chocolate mousse. We ended up scraping a lot of the mousse off and enjoyed the cake, blueberry, and a bit of the buttercream — that combo was delightful.
