Ultimate Guide to the Best Disney Cupcake
Almost everyone loves cupcakes and, if you’re a fan too, this article is chock-filled with Disney cupcake madness. We tell you where you can find the sweet treats at both Disney World and Disneyland. Even if you don’t have a need to find Disneycupcakes, you really should indulge on your trip – isn’t that what a Disney vacation is all about?
Let’s first take you to Walt Disney World in Orlando, where you can find the legendary Sprinkles Cupcakes at Disney Springs. Why are Sprinkles cupcakes legendary? If you’ve watched Cupcake Wars on the Food Network, one of the judges was Candace Nelson, who started Sprinkles the first ‘cupcakery’ (combo of cupcakes and bakery) in the States. It started a cupcake craze. Candace is now a judge on Netflix’s Sugar Rush and you can find her cupcakes on property. This Disney cupcake is so good.
Flavors, Flavors and More Flavors
Sprinkles has many flavors, including red velvet, black and white, chocolate marshmallow, strawberry, salty caramel, banana, coconut and more. Each is $4.95. Here’s a money saving tip if you want to try multiple cupcakes – have each person in your party pick a flavor. Then cut each Disney cupcake and sample them all. That’s what we do!
