Everyone seems to be celebrating Mickey’s 90th birthday this weekend, and Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs is no exception. They have whipped up two special treats just in time for the big day.
“Started With a Mouse” – $8.00
This lovely little birthday treat has a chocolate chiffon cake base, dark chocolate mousse with a Boston creme pie center and chocolate rice pearls. In terms of flavor, it is very similar to the Amorette’s best-seller, the “Mickey Mousse”. The chocolate is definitely the dominate flavor and it has a very smooth texture. However, the design is obviously the main attraction here. It looks like Mickey’s birthday hat! If you find yourself in Disney Springs this weekend, I’d say this is an excellent dessert option.
Mickey’s Birthday Smoothie – $5.99
Billed as “tropical strawberry”, this drink is simple but delicious. It’s a mix of pineapple and strawberry smoothies, with whipped cream and chocolate “ears” on top. The flavors are straight-forward, but compliment each other well. The whipped cream on mine was overflowing and ended up being a bit of a mess, but overall it was quite refreshing. This would be great on a hot day.
I was told that both of these are only sticking around through November 18th, so get them while you can.
