Last year saw the debut of lots of holiday enhancements to Animal Kingdom. While all the wonderful decorations throughout the park have returned, the Merry Menagerie entertainment has not. It is totally understandable, but it still saddens me because the interaction of the puppets and guests was heartwarming. Last year the Menagerie Cupcake debuted as part of the celebration, and it has returned this year.
Gingerbread is severely under-represented this year in the long list of holiday treats available throughout Walt Disney World property. The Menagerie Cupcake, available via mobile order at Restaurantosaurus, is perfect for gingerbread fans. It is a gingerbread cupcake topped with cream cheese frosting. It sounds a bit like carrot cake, doesn’t it?
The frosting is on the sweet side thanks to the decorative sugar on top, and could have been a little thicker and tangier to be closer to traditional cream cheese frosting. The cake itself has a prevalent spice from the gingerbread flavor. All in all, this is a great cupcake if you desire something with traditional holiday flavor. It is $5.99, the standard price for any Disney specialty cupcake.
