We are loving all the delicious seasonal treats we’ve been having around Disney’s California Adventure Park.
Alert, alert: a new flavor of Wine Slush has arrived at Walt Disney World! This is not a drill! Don’t worry: we’re here with the details. Cue the confetti! We also have a review of the beautiful, seasonal Apricot Peach Verrine dessert for you. (So many verrines this year.) It’s all part of the Holidays at Disney Springs.
You probably want to start with the wine, right? Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs introduced the world to the magic of Wine Slushies a little over a year ago, so we were pretty jazzed to find a new seasonal wine slush flavor on the menu: Cranberry Chardonnay.
Just when we thought Disney’s Animal Kingdom might be going straight from Halloween to Christmas, they surprised us with a new cupcake perfect for the time in between the spooky season and the holiday season.
Introducing the new Thanksgiving Cupcake! What flavor is it, where can you get one, and can you use a snack credit? Let’s find out!
How cute are these!
During our time in Disney Springs today we spotted these summer themed cakes and treats at Amorette’s Patisserie in Town Center at Disney Springs!
This Mickey Bar cake is a must-get!
Check out this appropriately flavored Peanut Butter and Jelly mini cake ready for a picnic!
With Autumn waning, and the Winter Holidays just around the corner, we couldn’t resist offering you one last beautiful, delicious look at this colorful season.
Fortunately, a trip to The Mara provided a couple of great options to celebrate the season.
Autumn Chocolate Pecan Tart
Having enjoyed lunch in the Parks, I decided to drop by The Mara and see what was new in the pastry case. I was excited to see lots of Fall colors and flavors! The first sweet that caught my eye was this Autumn-Themed Chocolate Pecan Tart.
The bold colors of the Chocolate Garnish were the perfect complement for the season. And I was intrigued by the obvious color in the Whipped Cream that topped the Tart.
Cutting into the Tart, it was obvious that this was a rich, moist pecan pie filling — nothing dry about this!
And the cinnamon-y and buttery flavors were perfect together. I think the whipped cream was [Read more…]
One of the most exciting new spots at Walt Disney World to open this year is Landscape of Flavors at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, and I got to stay at AoA as it celebrated its very first holiday season! I couldn’t wait to see what new treats would be available, and I wasn’t disappointed when I found this little gem…
Pumpkin Pecan Tart
There in the ready-made case, I spied the Pumpkin Pecan Tart. I haven’t found this anywhere else on property, though it may be at the other value resorts (lemme know if you find it!).
Opening the clam shell container, I could tell this would be fantastic! The topping looked like the best sticky, ooey-gooey pecan pie, and the thick crust looked perfect. Something else to note: see the white stuff? You think it’s whipped cream, right? So did I. But actually, it’s cream cheese frosting. The best condiment ever? I think so.
Cutting the tart in half finally revealed the creamy pumpkin custard that was beneath the pecan pie topping. This is like having two of your very favorite holiday pies all in one!
The top half delivered, as it tasted just like it looked: the best part of a [Read more…]
