There’s no doubt that Disney specialty cupcakes have a dedicated following, and some locations change their variety with regularity. Recently, our field research team stopped in at Creature Comforts (aka Starbucks) at Disney’s Animal Kingdom to see what the latest cupcake treat had been created.
In a subtle nod to the unofficial villain season of Halloween, this cupcake features an Animal Kingdom appropriate white chocolate villain topper in Scar from The Lion King. The cupcake itself is red velvet, with a small dollop of marshmallow fluff in it. The cupcake is absolutely smothered in mounds of chocolate frosting, crispy rice pearls, and white chocolate “grass”.
Although the cake itself is not any more dense than other cupcakes, for some reason, this cupcake felt like a heavier option, and only the heartiest of cupcake connoisseurs will want to try and eat this on their own. At $5.99, this is a good option to split between two or three people.
Like all Disney cupcakes, there’s no telling how long this one will be available for, but if you are a fan of red velvet and chocolate, you’ll want to visit Creature Comforts soon.
