We love the vibrant exterior of this cupcake! Bright shades of yellow, red, and orange make up its color scheme.
The sweet treat comes in scalloped, yellow wrapping.
The Lion King Themed
White chocolate artwork features an iconic image of Simba, Pumba, and Timon from the beloved Disney film.
Our MickeyBlogger, Kristen, notes that the chocolate cake is nice and moist. In addition, the vanilla custard filling has a smooth, and creamy consistency.
Although there was a lot of frosting on top, overall, the cupcake was delicious. The simplicity of flavors may not impress adults, but kids would absolutely love this item!
