Earlier today we stopped by Capt. Cook’s at the Polynesian Village Resort to try out their new Memorial Day cupcake! What did we think of it, you ask?

At first glance, this cupcake had us worried. It looked like it was built up with a ton of frosting, but thankfully it was layered quite artfully so that it looked full and beautiful without mounding on the sugary frosting.

The white chocolate filling is creamy and delicious without being overly sweet. Taste-wise, this is a simple cupcake with just vanilla and white chocolate, but the fruit adds a welcome freshness and burst of flavor. We were surprised at how delicious this basic cupcake was! The ratio of cupcake filling to cupcake was spot-on.

This is probably the prettiest cupcake we’ve seen in a good while! We loved the use of edible glitter, too. The pastry chef here certainly has our respect. The cupcakes available at the Polynesian Resort are always the best in our opinion.

Overall this cupcake was a visual delight and a pleasure to eat, but be cautious with the red frosting, as it does stain. We give this beauty a 10/10, and would get it again!
