A very interesting cupcake has arrived in Discovery Island — and it’s available with Disney’s Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler. The Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcake is a sugary sidekick to Italy’s most popular dish. It may not be the most authentic Italian dessert at Walt Disney World, but we certainly have to give Disney points for creativity!
This cupcake has a lot going on, detail wise. With noodle frosting, red sauce and a meatball on top, it’s nice to see Disney focus on the details to bring guests something very unique.
Usually cupcakes at Disney’s Animal Kingdom are disappointing and often stale. But this dessert was the opposite: it was excellent! The flavor was exactly as advertised and very fresh.
Fondant “red sauce” contrasted nicely against the buttercream “spaghetti.” The vanilla cake “meatball” combined with the orange cake made the cupcake very orange dreamsicle — but in an even more sugary way.
Let’s slice this monster meatball to see what’s inside the cupcake.
The inside is filled with cannolli cream to round out the Italian theme.
The Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcake is $5.99 and can be purchased at Terra Treats.
The cupcake is also part of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler, which we reviewed when it originally launched in April.
When purchasing the sampler, you get a guide.
Details and the map help you navigate to the participating locations.
In addition to the cupcake, Terra Treats offers pizza as part of the package.
