Magic Kingdom is now offering a Christmas Tree Cake (no, not the Little Debbie ones) during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. You can snag this treat, along with the Holiday Dinner Dog, at Casey’s Corner.
Christmas Tree Cake – $5.89
Red velvet brownie cheesecake with eggnog buttercream and spiced caramel topped with mini sugar Christmas lights
This is just all too much. First off, it’s basically three layers. The bottom is the red velvet brownie, which is more of a dense cake than a brownie. It was fine on it’s own. The middle is a layer of cheesecake. Which was also fine on its own.
But note that “red velvet brownie cheesecake” does not mean the same thing as “red velvet brownie topped with cheesecake.” This is where the problem begins; there’s just too many things going on at once. On top of the cheesecake is a thick layer of buttercream frosting, which did not taste like eggnog at all.
If you’ve ever eaten cheesecake, you’ll notice that it doesn’t come with buttercream frosting. There’s a good reason— it doesn’t work together. Then the swirl of caramel just added a fourth flavor to this mess. It’s almost like they picked things out of a hat and put them all into the same dessert. None of it really works well together.
The Christmas Tree Cake is available exclusively during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, a separately ticketed event taking place on select nights from November 8 through December 22.
