One of Disney’s most underrated holidays is coming up: 626 Day!
You may be thinking, “What’s 626 Day?” and we’re here to tell you, it’s the day we celebrate Experiment 626, AKA Stitch, of course! The cute but chaotic blue experiment from outer space has his own day, June 26th (duh), and we found a special treat to celebrate!
Say Aloha to this adorable Stitch cake we found at Capt. Cook’s in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort!
We found him chillin’ in the fridge ahead of his big day (the hot-headed alien definitely needs to cool off sometimes!).
Stitch even has a cute little duck friend blowing him a kiss…
…and a red decorative flower on his head!
The treat has a milk chocolate dome cake, white chocolate ganache icing dyed blue, dark chocolate ganache, and a blue sugar cookie base!
Stitch’s ears and the duck are white chocolate, his eyes and nose are fondant. The decorative piping is buttercream dotted by mini chocolate crisp pearls, and on his head is a meringue candy flower. Jeez, can you say sugar rush?! You’ll be bouncing off the walls just like Mr. 626 after eating this!
The cake was a bit dry, but we think that’s probably because he was in the fridge first. The cookie base is fun, but it makes it kind of hard to cut into!
The blue and green icing were also super messy! They WILL stain your hands and clothes if you’re not careful, so be warned! You may need wet wipes. But, Stitch himself is a mess sometimes, so you can also just embrace his attitude in honor of the holiday!
If you’re a big chocolate lover and aren’t afraid to get messy, head on over to the Polynesian before Stitch’s big day to pick up a cake for yourself for $5.99. We’ll keep a lookout for any other Stitch celebrations we see around Disney World, so stay tuned to DFB!
