For World Princess Week, the Mermaid Tail Cupcake has returned to Landscape of Flavors at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. Unlike the other celebratory treats, this cupcake will stick around past August 27 (though beyond that, no official end date has been confirmed).
Mermaid Tail Cupcake – $6.29
Vanilla Cupcake filled with Pineapple and topped with Coconut Buttercream, White Chocolate Mermaid Tail, Graham Cracker Crumb, Crispy Pearls, and Glitter
Fluffy buttercream tops this vanilla cupcake, sprinkled with a fine graham cracker sand. The edge is encircled with crispy pearls in shades of pink, red, and purple. The shimmering white chocolate mermaid tail is the highlight of the decoration, making for a very photogenic treat.
There is a lot of thick pineapple compote piped into the middle. It’s a very strong, rich flavor and can be overwhelming if you don’t like pineapple. If you do, you’re in luck. It’s delicious. The buttercream isn’t too sweet, but we didn’t get much of the coconut flavor.
The mermaid tail is pretty, but it’s your standard white chocolate decoration.
The cupcake was delicious, and worth the trip over to Art of Animation.
