Got an appetite for adventure? A new Indiana Jones Petit Cake has journeyed to Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs, just as Harrison Ford’s final cinematic outing as the titular character hits cinemas today with “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.”
Indiana Jones Petit Cake – $22
An inspiration of Moroccan flavors with Vanilla Chiffon, Dates, Candied Almonds, Almond Mousse, and Spiced Simple Syrup
This Moroccan-inspired cake is available at Amorette’s Patisserie, at the edge of the Town Center area of Disney Springs, between the Levi’s store and World of Disney.
It’s on display inside as a featured item today, and we couldn’t resist giving it a try.
Goodness, this cake was amazing! It tastes like apple pie, with a sense of cinnamon and apple both involved. The slices of candied almonds give the dish a great texture, and the vanilla chiffon was moist, not too sweet, and perfect.
This cake is on point. The fondant is about the same as usual for Amorette’s — sweet and heavy. We felt we one person could eat the whole thing alone simply because of how delicious it is.
While it’s pricey, we highly recommend the Indiana Jones Petit Cake and consider it one of the best ones we’ve tried in the last couple of years.
Indiana Jones in the Spotlight Across Disney Parks
So much has been happening across the universe of Disney to promote this film’s release.
The Den of Destiny opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, featuring iconic movie props, specialty cocktails we had a chance to review, CIA profiles, and an appearance of the Anubis head from the former Great Movie Ride. Tons of new merchandise related to the franchise has also been popping up all over Walt Disney World.
‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’
“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18, and officially has its wide release today, June 30.
The MPAA rates this new film as PG-13. According to their classification, the rating is due to “sequences of violence and action, language and smoking.” While this classification itself doesn’t add much to what can be expected in the fifth and final film, it is an interesting reminder that the second film of the franchise, “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” was a main catalyst (alongside “Gremlins”) that led the MPAA to create a PG-13 classification in the first place.
“Dial of Destiny” will take place in 1969, amid the peak of the space race. Dr. Jones will encounter his old enemy (the Nazis) again, through Voller — a villain inspired by real-life Nazi Wernher von Braun, who became a NASA engineer.
The teaser trailer and artwork for the film debuted in December. A second teaser for “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” premiered during Super Bowl LVII.
Harrison Ford, now 80 years old, stated this will be the last “Indiana Jones” movie he takes part in.
It’s full of adventure, full of laughs, full of real emotion. And it’s complex and it’s sneaky. The shooting of it was tough and long and arduous. But I’m very happy with the film that we have.
It’s rumored that an Indiana Jones TV series could be in development for Disney+. It remains unclear if the story of this series would be a prequel to the films, set somewhere inside the franchise narrative, or follow a totally new character. If this series is developed, it would not be the first TV show about Indiana Jones. In 1992-1993, “The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles” aired on ABC. Harrison Ford made a cameo appearance in one episode.
