REVIEW: Black Velvet Whoopie Pie Ushers in Halloween at Magic Kingdom

It’s officially Halloween season at the Magic Kingdom, and to celebrate, Liberty Square Market is serving an eerie twist on a classic treat: the Black Velvet Whoopie Pie.

The black velvet cakes — or, cookies, as they’re being advertised — are surprisingly moist, especially considering that this treat is being served at a Magic Kingdom counter service location.

Advertised as “black velvet,” the cakes are the same as red velvet, just with different food coloring. There’s a light cocoa essence with a tart finish.

The sweetness of the multi-colored buttercream piped between the two cakes effectively balances the treat. The sprinkle-filled cream is cold and generally rounds out the dessert.

The pie reminded us of a Hostess snack cake, though this is of a slightly higher quality. It’s a tasty treat that earns a thumbs up thanks largely to the cakes’ density.
