Five Bakery Treats you Must Try

Five Bakery Treats you Must Try

Walt Disney World is a place filled with all sorts of delicious goodies. Calling to children and adults alike are the bakery treats found across property. From the theme parks to the resort hotels, you’re likely to find something sweet and Mickey-themed beckoning to you from a pastry case. Let’s shine a spotlight on a group of five bake shop treats that might be calling your name on your next vacation.


Princess Cupcakes and Mickey Mouse Cupcakes

It doesn’t matter what cute name they give them since you will be drawn to these large, colorfully decorated cupcakes. Walt Disney World bakes a basic vanilla and a basic chocolate cupcake it dresses up with icing and sprinkles. The Princess Cupcake, which I ordered at Goofy’s Candy Co., is a not-too-dry, not-too-moist yellow cake lightly flavored with vanilla. It is topped with sweet pink frosting swirled high with a smattering of pastel Mickey sprinkles. The Mickey Mouse Cupcake showcases what Disney bakers can do with the chocolate version. I ordered mine at the Main Street Bakery in the Magic Kingdom. It’s a similar texture to the Princess Cupcake, but it is topped with a sugary white icing and Mickey Mouse sprinkles. (Of the two, the chocolate is my favorite.) Keep in mind these are bigger than average cupcakes and can easily be shared by two.

BabyCakes NYC Cupcakes

When you are at the Downtown Disney Marketplace, plan to stop at BabyCakes NYC for unbelievably fresh and delicious cupcakes, especially when you learn they are dairy free, gluten free, egg free, soy free, and refined sugar free. My young daughter and I shared a French Toast cupcake, one of the specialty flavors being offered that day, and all we could say was “wow.” This moist, airy cinnamon cake came topped with creamy, maple syrup flavored frosting. I am not ashamed to say we ate every crumb. BabyCakes NYC offers cupcakes in a range of flavors, including vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, carrot, lemon, and banana.

Mickey Cake Pops

Cake pops are the newest trend at bake shops, but no one does them cuter than Walt Disney World. Here they are made in the shape of Mouse ears and are dipped in milk chocolate with a white chocolate drizzle. You can find them in three cake flavors: vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet. I ordered the red velvet at Goofy’s Candy Co and was delighted to discover the ears are actually soft, sweet marshmallow. This dense, cocoa rich cake pop is great for those who like red velvet but aren’t so keen on the cream cheese frosting.

Mickey Mouse Brownie

At the Main Street Bakery, they sit in the glass case like little rows of Mouseketeer hats. What is there not to love about a great chocolaty brownie covered in milk chocolate and finished with a white drizzle. The fun part in eating this brownie was discovering how the Disney bakers made the ears – they are actually discs of chocolate stuck into a bowl shaped brownie. The day I ordered, guests could choose between a chocolate brownie and a mint chocolate one.

Mickey Chocolate Tart

I discovered this heavenly treat in the pastry case at The Mara quick serve restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Baked in the shape of the iconic Mickey Mouse head, this tart features a chocolate cookie crust filled with a rich and creamy chocolate ganache and a touch of raspberry jam. A colorful splash of Mickey Mouse sprinkles adds just the right decorative touch. I shared this dessert with my three children and we all could not get enough of it.

Next time you find yourself at Walt Disney World, keep an eye out for those glass pastry cases! Just waiting for your enjoyment are a host of sweet baked goodies served up in style by proud Disney chefs.
