New Cupcake Alert! The Rose Gold Cupcake and the Pot o' Gold!


Hey there, Disney Foodies!

     Ok, where are my cupcake fans at???? Have I got some beauties for you! Check out two newcomers to the BoardWalk Bakery's repertoire! I give you the Rose Gold Mouse Ears cupcake and the Pot o' Gold Cupcake! (Fair warning, I'm assuming the Pot o' Gold was a St. Paddy's Day special, so I don't know how much longer it will be around!)

 

     The Rose Gold cupcake joins the ranks of several rose-gold colored desserts around Disney, which are all the rage right now, thanks the the popularity of the coveted rose-gold Minnie ears. It starts with a yellow cupcake, filled with a rose mousse, and topped with pink and white pillows of whipped cream, crispy chocolate pearls, (shaped into a Hidden Mickey!), and a chocolate pair of Minnie ears.

     Then we have the Pot o' Gold, which is a chocolate cupcake, with what I believe to was a chocolate-Irish creme filling, and topped with green whipped cream, crispy chocolate pearls, and chocolate coins and a rainbow garnish.


     So, we started with the Rose Gold first. I will admit, I was kind of disappointed to find that the ears were hollow chocolate, and not some bonus dessert on top, but it was good chocolate. The edible rose-gold glitter paint didn't change the taste at all . The whipped topping was light, airy and refreshing. The cupcake was super moist, and the mousse was a nice compliment. I, however, did not taste rose. It tasted like strawberry to me. (Not a bad thing, since I am not a fan of floral flavors in desserts.) Overall, we really liked this cupcake, and I mean... come on..... how cute is that????





     Would the Pot o' Gold be as fantastic? Well,  this one started with some confusion for me. The woman working behind the bakery counter described this to me as 'chocolate cake, with rainbow filling and green frosting'. Sweet! I love rainbows! I was so sad when I cut this open and saw..... chocolate. Not that I have anything against chocolate. I mean, who does?  But I was hoping for a rainbow. Oh, well. Had to settle for the pretty little one on the top. The cake itself was a nice, chocolate sponge. The filling was a a weird cross between a mousse and a ganache. It tasted good and I'm pretty sure I got some Irish creme mixed in with the chocolate, but since I was told the filling was 'rainbow', I am uncertain. I was also disappointed to find that the 'frosting' was actually more whipped cream. I love whipped cream on hot chocolate, and I even enjoy it when I'm playing Pie Face with my Littles, but I do not generally like it in place of frosting. It worked on the Rose Gold cupcake, because it make it kind of like a shortcake kinda deal, but it did not work for me on the Pot o' Gold. The decorations of white chocolate and the chocolate pearls were yummy. My Littles were expecting the rainbow to be a sour gummy candy, but lucky for Mamma, it was chocolate. I'd say the Pot o' Gold was not as good as the Rose Gold, but, man, was it cute!



   Are you hungry now? I bet you are! Disney does some awesome cupcake confections. What's YOUR favorite Disney cupcake??? If you're craving some Disney sweets, hit up the agents at Kingdom Konsultants to get your next snack run... I mean, vacation, booked!

     Until next time, Disney Guys and Gals, have a magical week!!!

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs is one of my go-to spots for a great meal.  The restaurant itself is beautiful and I've had so many great meals there over the years. Chef Morimoto is a relatively well-known chef after appearing on Iron Chef America as one of the original Iron Chefs, so when he opened a restaurant at Disney Springs I was so excited to give it a try being a fan of the show and of Chef Morimoto.  This restaurant brings his masterful Asian cuisine to Florida in his first "Pan-Asian" concept.  With 20-foot chandeliers and glass walls giving a peek into the kitchen and a sushi bar upstairs, there is something to catch everyone's eye here. In October, they had specialty spooky cocktails on the menu that we just couldn't resist trying! One was pumpkin and lychee based and the other was grapefruit and rose and they were both good but the black magic was definitely our favorite.  Twisted Pumpkin: absolut elyx, pumpkin spiced liqueur, lychee, liqueur, house

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
