Capt. Cook’s over at the Polynesian is offering a cute new Easter cupcake for the weekend. It’s a vanilla cake filled with lemon cream. This cupcake may not be the most interesting, but an aggressive squirrel made this review a very memorable experience.
This bunny cupcake is decorated with cute pastel icing flowers on a fluffy layer of sugar coated buttercream. The white chocolate ears are thin and covered in crunchy little sprinkles. They’re pretty long, and stuck deep into the cupcake.
As I was photographing the cupcake, I noticed a squirrel was creeping up on my cupcake. He stole my cupcake wrapper and ran away. Next thing I know, he’s back, with crumbs on his face, watching me from a chair, plotting his next move. He must be able to smell sugar and fear, because it didn’t take long for him to walk up and attempt to grab the cupcake off my plate. Even after I took the plate off the table, I think he considered jumping into my lap.
When I stood up, he grabbed a crumb from the table and ran away. You may want to enjoy this treat indoors. Now, back to your regularly scheduled cupcake review.
As I said, this cupcake is pretty simple. It’s a plain buttercream and yellow cake, filled with a lemon cream. The filling is just too tart. The cake and buttercream are delicious, though. The sharp lemon taste took away from the nice frosting and cake. It’s simple for $5.99, but very good.
If you’re stopping by the Polynesian this weekend, this vanilla and lemon cupcake is a sweet way to celebrate Easter. It’s also approved by the Polynesian squirrel. You can’t argue with that.
