Valentine’s Day is the sweetest holiday of the year, and this cupcake at Animal Kingdom is the perfect way to celebrate!
I am not generally a fan of some Disney cupcakes. For me, they can be dry or they have red frosting that tastes like a chemical food coloring.
Tonight I stumbled on the Valentine’s Cupcake by chance while dining at Restaurantosaurus for the DVC Moonlight Magic event. I thought I would take a chance and take this cupcake out for a date! And it was an excellent first date!
It is a Chocolate Cupcake topped with a Strawberry buttercream, crispy pearls, heart-shaped sprinkles, and a leopard-spotted chocolate covered strawberry.
The chocolate cake is very moist and has a nice flavor. It was not overly sweet. This cupcake did not have a filling, which I think was perfectly fine.
The buttercream was my favorite part as it has a light strawberry flavor that really complements the cake. Some strawberry-flavored items can taste medicinal or have a chemical flavor from the food color, but this one was perfect.
The chocolate crispy pearls added a nice texture, but their flavor was lost in the frosting. There were also heart-shaped sprinkles.
The chocolate-covered strawberry was really nice with the leopard print candy coating was a standard chocolate-covered strawberry. It was fresh and juicy.
Overall this was probably my favorite Disney cupcake I have ever had and I would highly recommend this treat at $5.99.
