REVIEW: Pride Cupcake is a Frosting-Lover’s Dream (But Our Nightmare) at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Kickoff Pride Month with the new Pride Cupcake at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We picked ours up at Backlot Express, but it’s also available at ABC Commissary.
Pride Cupcake – $5.99
Vanilla Cupcake filled with Rainbow Sprinkles and Berry Marmalade, topped with a Red Berry Buttercream, and garnished with Rainbow Sprinkles, Rainbow Glitter, and Mickey Pride Ears
The cupcake is cute, with the dollop of red berry buttercream, the circle of colorful sprinkles, and the Pride flag Mickey ears.

It appears to be a standard cupcake. However, we found that looks can be deceiving.

Once unwrapped, we found that the already-generous serving of frosting was, in fact, just a topper for another thick layer of buttercream.
Seriously, there was more frosting than cake. It’s a shame, because the cake itself was moist and light.
The raspberry filling added a nice tartness. If there had been less frosting, it would have balanced the sweetness.
There are so many cupcake choices around Walt Disney World that won’t give you a stomach ache from frosting overload that we can’t recommend this. Instead, for a sweet treat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, go to Rosie’s All-American Café for the S’more Cupcake or Pride Dome Cake.
