Attention, Mouseketeers! It’s time for your weekly dose of food coloring. Walt Disney World announced that this new cupcake would be making its big debut at the Main Street Bakery in the Magic Kingdom and we decided to check it out for you… but we never expected it to be this big behemoth piled high with frosting.
Mouseketeer’s Cupcake at Main Street Bakery – $6.99
Behold… the Mouseketeer’s Cupcake.
This creation stands tall with not one, but two layers of frosting on top. At $6.99, you’re getting a lot of cupcake for your buck as this is one of the larger, shareable cupcakes available in the World.
It includes red, white, and black mickey sprinkles, a Mickey head chocolate topper, and two disk-shaped chocolates on each side for ears. A dome of black frosting is covered with black pebble-like sprinkles. It all comes together to look like a Mouseketeer hat!
However, this is where the fun ends. This towering confection is delicate due to it being so top-heavy, and slicing it down the middle, let alone taking it out of the wrapper, is a perilous proposition.
The white frosting is particularly fluffy and tastes like Publix icing, which in my opinion, makes it very good. The black frosting will stain your teeth, mouth, hands, and loved ones, but surprisingly enough tastes better than it has any right to.
The inside of the cake is insanely moist and swirled with both layers of red velvet cake and vanilla cake.
All in all, this is a massive cake worthy of sharing with your family and friends, and despite the questionable amounts of black and red food coloring, is still tasty enough to try. If you’re a Mickey Mouse Club fan, or just looking for the latest and greatest in giant Disney cupcakes, this is definitely for you.
