Capt. Cook’s at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is getting in on the fun for World Princess Week with a special mini cake inspired by Moana!
Moana Mini Cake – $7.29
Vanilla Cake filled with Mango Mousse and covered in a wave of Glaçage, Buttercream, Fondant and White Chocolate Décor
The cake is cute, with the buttercream and icing making it look like Moana is standing atop a waterfall surrounded by leaves and flowers.
The white chocolate wave is held on with a dollop of white buttercream.
The vanilla cake is decent, but nothing special. Luckily, it isn’t dry.
The mousse is rather subtle, while the mango flavor is almost hard to find unless you’re really searching for it.
The blue wave icing on top has a jelly-like consistency and has a weird texture.
The buttercream on top is really thick, like butter. The crispy pearls on the inside give it a little bit of crunch, which is pleasant.
This is okay, but it really just tastes like a lot of sugar and if you’re getting it specifically for the mango/fruity flavor, we’d recommend you probably pass on this and go for a Dole Whip instead. It’s just average.
