The cupcake itself is cinnamon-spiced, evoking the flavors of fall.

Don’t think about eating this on-the-go, as the interior is full of stewed apples.

The cake tastes like a mild spice cake. It was fluffy and had a nice flavor without being too heavy. It was a good base for this cupcake.

The tart apples were still crunchy and crisp. They had a nice spice and flavor and were the same quality of a good apple pie filling.

The icing was standard buttercream, but there was little too much of it for our taste. If you’re a big icing fan, this one may just be for you.

The sugar pumpkin was a fun decoration that kids in particular will probably love eating.

Overall, the spice cake balanced the tart apple filling really well, and the sweet icing brought the flavors together nicely. It wasn’t as well-balanced as some of the other desserts we’ve had from Gasparilla, though. We would have liked less icing and more filling, but it’s still a tasty treat.

The presentation was beautiful as well—the bakery team from Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort never fails to impress.

Both of treats will be available at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa until December 1.
