We couldn’t get over the new Lady and the Tramp cake featuring one of our favorite Disney duos and now we know what’s hiding under those candy meatballs!
It’s Valentine’s Day week and we are still trying to decide the perfect gift for our (selves, or) sweethearts!
Fortunately, Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs has us covered with plenty of festive treats that give us ALL the heart eyes. Find out which of the newest creations will have you falling in amor! [Read more…]
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is almost HERE!
Star Wars fever is going STRONG over at Disney World! In the past few weeks, we’ve had Baby Yoda melt our hearts and the opening of the new Rise of the Resistance ride blow our minds! Now, thanks to Sprinkles in Disney Springs and Downtown Disney, it looks like Star Wars will bringing us some tasty TREATS as well!
If you’ve ever daydreamed about a Disney wedding designed by Fairy Tale Weddings (or if you just like to gawk at the gorgeousness and cringe at the costs…), our Disneyland correspondent Heather (hi, @DiningInDisney!!) is bringing you some serious eye candy (or should we say eye bling?) from her visit to the Disney Weddings Showcase! So let’s link arms and make our way down the aisle, shall we?
Sigh. Those are flower petals in stunning ombre filigree on the Magic Kingdom Lawn at Disneyland Hotel. [Read more…]
We’ve hopped the monorail for another fun check-in at the Contempo Cafe!
On a recent jaunt through the Contemporary to view the Frozen Gingerbread Display, I couldn’t resist checking out the pastry case at the Contempo Cafe. More often than not, I usually find a new-to-me cupcake there!
Now, at first glance, this one doesn’t seem all that interesting. But let’s dig a little deeper. First off, the cupcakes featuring Mickey Mouse’s likeness at the Contempo in the past have been topped with a Chocolate Mickey — like this Red Velvet Cupcake. This one features a Souvenir Ring. SWAG! 😉
The top of the cupcake is crowned with a light Buttercream Frosting, and it’s finished with cute Mickey-shaped Confetti in classic colors. But we know the Contempo well enough at this point to figure there’s a surprise inside.
…And right we are! This cupcake features the same structure of others sold here; the center plays host to [Read more…]
It continues to be be chilly out there, guys!
Rose and Crown Pub and Dining Room
And I don’t know about you, but when it’s cold like this, all I want is some comfort food!
This new British classic features a cake that is very moist in the British “pudding” tradition. It’s topped with the combo of Butter-Rum and Vanilla Custard Sauces, making for a sweet ending that’s hard to resist!
This is definitely one that you can enjoy anytime the fancy strikes you with this awesome recipe!

Old Port Royale Food Court
HUGE thanks to DFB readers Matt and Lenore for telling me about this — and making it imperative that I head over to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort on my last Disney World Visit!
One of the treats that I couldn’t wait to sample on my recent trip to Walt Disney World was the Monkey Cupcake at Old Port Royale Food Court within Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. I’d heard it had peanut butter buttercream icing (hubba hubba!!) and a surprise inside!
You might be asking at this point: so, what makes this a “monkey cupcake?” I mean, there are no little chocolate monkeys or faces on it, like you’d find on the Elephant Cupcake at Animal Kingdom’s Kusafiri Bakery and Coffee Shop…
But when you cut into the moist cake, you begin to get the picture. The proof is in the pudding — or filling as it were. And the filling just happens to be chock full of bananas!
If you get a fork in there like I did, you can see that there are [Read more…]
Beaches and Cream
On our most recent trip to the magic, it was time to revisit one of our favoritest spots, Beaches and Cream Soda Shop!
Located at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, Beaches and Cream Soda Shop has long been a favorite of Disney World guests, featuring lots of decorative touches that whisk guests right back to beach vacations of their childhoods.
With vintage “beach balls” scattered throughout, giant ice cream cones lighting your way, a jivin’ jukebox playing tunes you remember from the 50’s and 60’s, and a nostalgic and simple menu, you’ll feel like a kid again…and YOUR kids will love it just as much.
Seating is either in big pink booths or at small, white wrought iron tables. If you’re in a rush or just looking for a bit more fun, ask for a stool at the counter where you can watch the chefs and servers work their magic on classic burgers and massive ice cream sundaes.
