Memorial Day Cupcake Found at Captain Cook’s
Scrumptious sweets for the Memorial Day holiday weekend are out at the Walt Disney World Resort. Our MickeyBlogger found this delicious gem of a cupcake at Captain Cook’s at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
Layers of buttercream icing swirl around the top of the treat in patriotic colors of red and white. The frosting alternates patterns of waves and open star scallops.
The crown of the cupcake features fresh blueberries and rasberries to add to the traditional United States flag color scheme.
Five-pointed star sprinkles in red, white and blue adorn the white sweet, vanilla frosting in another nod to the star-spangled banner. Tiny candy pearls also hide nestled across the bottom for a little crunch.
Inside, the moist vanilla cake surrounds an incredible swirl filling of white chocolate mouse and mouth-watering blueberry compote.
This cupcake certainly makes for a great break away from the Magic Kingdom one afternoon this weekend. The treat is $5.99, and you can use mobile ordering on the MyDisneyExperience app.
Captain Cook’s is a quick-service restaurant at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. (You can also find the resort’s famous Tonga Toast here!)
To travel to Disney’s Polynesian Village, take a boat or the walking path from the Magic Kingdom. You can also take the monorail from the Magic Kingdom to the Tranportation and Ticket Center and walk to the resort.
Currently, the Polynesian is undergoing a massive transformation both in its rooms and its great Ceremonial House. Opening in just a couple of months, the renovated Polynesian will feature Moana-theme rooms. The main house will also feature nods to the “not a princess” heroine.
Construction on the monorail station at the resort continues. MickeyBloggers notice progress each time that they visit the resort.
