Cupcake Review! Lemon and Rose Gold Cupcakes from Contempo Cafe!

 

Hey Howdy Hey, Disney Foodies!

     Everyone ready for more sweet treats? Just last weekend, I stopped by the Contempo Cafe at The Contemporary Resort and got to check out two of Disney's newest cupcakes: A different version of the Rose Gold Mouse Ears Cupcake and a Lemon Cupcake! Can't wait to tell you about them, so come on along!


     The Littles and I parked at The Grand Floridian and decided to spend some time riding the rails of the monorail, before we decided on a place for a snack. Does the monorail make everyone as happy as it makes me? Sure it can be crowded and sometimes smells a little barnyard-like for some very strange reason, but that soothing narration, the wide windows and the "Please stand clear of the doors," all just make me feel right at home. Same for most Disney fans, I'm guessing since one of the newest merchandise lines features the monorails, prominently. Cute stuff, too!

Monorail tote bags, socks and mugs.

Monorail toiletries bags, figurines and more!

     We picked the Contempo Cafe for a snack, since their bakery case is always choc-full-o amazing cupcake creations, and this day was no exception. There were Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes, Birthday Cake Cupcakes, Frozen Cupcakes and Mocha Cupcakes, but we picked the two we wanted to try the most... The Rose Gold Mickey Ears Cupcake and the Lemon Cupcake.

Contempo Cafe's amazing bakery case. This pic is from Halloween, but you get the idea.... yum. 

     Let's start with the Rose Gold cupcake. Now, just a few weeks ago, I tried out a different Rose Gold cupcake, over that The BoardWalk. (If you didn't see that review, click HERE.) It was amazing to look at, but I was not a huge fan of the whipped cream in place of the frosting. Would THIS Rose Gold Cupcake impress me more? Well, here's what it looked like:


     Super cute, but not quite the same "wow" factor as the BoardWalk's version, (though they both sported the same, hollow chocolate Minnie ears, dusted in rose gold edible glitter). 


I was excited to find that the frosting on this one was indeed buttercream and not whipped cream, so score one point there. The cake was a moist yellow sponge, and the filling on this one was strawberries. (More like strawberry pie filling than fresh strawberries.) There was a good amount of filling, without it being too goopy. 


Overall, I really liked this one, and think taste-wise, it was the clear winner over the BoardWalk's version. Call me crazy, but a cupcake NEEDS frosting. My daughter was a big fan of the chocolate ears. Not as a treat.... as a lip gloss.


Yeah, don't worry, I didn't even let her back on the monorail with that still on. She can wear make up, (real or made of desserts), when she's older, but not at 9.

     So that leads us to the Lemon Cupcake. This one had an appearance that was very confusing to me. At first, I thought it was a Belle cupcake, due to the yellow and gold color combo and the sparkles, but it was not labeled as such.



It did feature a white chocolate truffle, filled with lemon, along with buttercream frosting. I don't know... this one wasn't nearly as appetizing looking to me. The color of the icing resembled mustard and since mustard is one of my most hated foods on the planet, it was a little off-putting. I am happy to report, however, that it did not taste like mustard, at all. The frosting was just plain vanilla frosting. The cake was the same yellow sponge as the Rose Gold Cupcake, but this one was filled with lemon pie filling. If you are a fan of lemon donuts or lemon meringue pie, you'll like this cupcake. I enjoyed the flavor of this one more the the Rose Gold, since I am a lemon girl. My daughter even liked this one more and she's not usually a lemon-eater. She said she liked the sweet-tart filling the most. I would get the Lemon Cupcake again!


     After cupcakes, we rode the rails a little more, lazed around the Polynesian for a bit, and then drove on home. Tough life when you're a Disney family. 

     And there you have it, folks! Two more Disney cupcakes to check out next time you are on property. Have you found YOUR favorite Disney cupcake yet? Let me know which one it is! Oh, and did I mention, you can use your Disney Dining Plan Snack Points for cupcakes??? What are you waiting for? Call the agents at Kingdom Konsultant Travel and get your package booked so you can enjoy all of the cupcakey goodness Disney has to offer. (Oh, and the rides and stuff, too.)

     Until next time, dudes, have a magical week!

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
