Between the holidays and the release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” we’ll forgive you if this somehow slipped your mind, but today is National Cupcake Day!
Walt Disney World Resort is the perfect place to celebrate this toothsome holiday as they have an impressive lineup of delicious new cupcakes to offer just for the occasion.
At Sunshine Seasons in Epcot, guests will find two very special cupcakes. The first is a cinnamon vanilla swirl cupcake with vanilla buttercream icicles, perfect for the holiday season.
The other is a vanilla cupcake with peanut butter and jelly filling topped with edible flowers from The Land pavilion that celebrates Epcot’s 35th anniversary.
Also at Epcot, guests can find another 35th anniversary cupcake at Fountain View. This cupcake features Spaceship Earth and consists of yellow cake with strawberry pastry cream filling, silver fondant and sprinkles.
Over at Magic Kingdom, the Main Street Bakery is cooking up three special cupcakes for this special occasion. The first is a red velvet cupcake filled with peppermint mousse and topped with cream cheese buttercream, peppermint sprinkles and peppermint bark.
Guests can also enjoy a Lightning McQueen cupcake consisting of chocolate cupcake, peanut butter mousse, mocha buttercream and chocolate curls as well as a Mickey and Minnie treat that features a yellow cupcake with strawberry mousse filling and topped with raspberry buttercream, strawberry crispy pearls.
