It’s time to dive head first into the holiday season! A major highlight of the holidays at Walt Disney World is the abundance of seasonal treats.
One of the first festive treats to pop up is this edible Christmas tree. This dessert’s official name is Tree on Cherry Hill, which we thought was a peculiar name for a cake until we took a bite.
The Tree on Cherry Hill cake can be found in the End Zone Food Court at Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort. It’s in the bakery case and costs $5.99. It’s also a Disney Dining Plan Snack Credit. Now let’s get into how this dessert got its name!
Upon first glance, we worried this dome cake was going to be sweetness overload. All of the icing on the tree was making us a bit apprehensive. We worried it was going to be too much.
We did appreciate all the details on this cake. It was covered in sparkly, edible glitter and topped with a tiny star.
SURPRISE! The inside of this cake caught us off guard. It’s an intense cherry flavor (hence the name Tree on Cherry Hill) and it is tart. The cake itself is almost a cheesecake like texture, similar to the Chocolate Cake at Satu’li Canteen at Pandora: The World of Avatar. The white snowy texture on the outside of the cake didn’t add much flavor. It’s just aesthetically pleasing. Thankfully, the tree isn’t entirely icing like we feared. The icing is attached to a wafer cone, almost like a cannoli wrapper.
The Tree on Cherry Hill cake is one of the prettiest cakes in the bakery section. It’s yummy, but it’s not a stand out. It’s a good option if you want a dessert that isn’t super rich or if you’re feeling like something tart. We’d also be fine passing it up next time we’re at Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort. Will you be trying the Tree on Cherry Hill cake?
