REVIEW: New 50th Anniversary Pluto Dome Cake at Magic Kingdom

As part of the newest batch of 50th anniversary treats, Gaston’s Tavern is now serving a Pluto Dome Cake. This has replaced the Goofy Dome Cake.

This Pluto themed dome cake features chocolate ganache and gluten-friendly peanut butter. It has a yellow dome with Pluto’s green collar, as well as Pluto’s ears made out of chocolate.

The side and the back of the cake feature the same design.

The outside of the cake is gelatinous and near inedible, similar to other new desserts we have tried at Walt Disney World. We would highly recommend peeling this gelatinous layer off before trying the dessert. This makes the dessert hard to eat, given the large amount of gelatin and the odd texture.

The dome cake has a thin chocolate cake base, with several layers of chocolate and peanut butter mousse. There are crunchy pearls within, but by the time it is served, they had become soggy. The mousse tastes more like chocolate, with only a hint of peanut butter. Even with that, the peanut butter tastes more like real peanuts and less like peanut butter. This could be good or bad depending on the person; however, we found this to be a deeply disappointing treat.
