The Cheshire Cafe in the Magic Kingdom has always been a great place for snacks, but when they change the menu, it’s disappointing!
A couple of years ago I discovered something that was exactly what my sweet tooth had been looking for. I have a love of sugar (which is evident by my growing waist line!) and I love cupcakes. The cupcakes at Walt Disney World usually have a good heaping dollop of icing on top. While these cupcakes are delicious, there was one in particular that really got the ratio of icing vs. cake right! It was the ‘cake cup’ that was once served at the Cheshire Café in the Magic Kingdom.
I had the opportunity to try both the Cheshire Cupcake (vanilla) and the Mad Hatter Mocha one. I am a huge fan of all things chocolate – the vanilla was surprisingly my favorite! The first time I tried it, I was in heaven. It was a lot of sugar – so my sister and I shared one on our subsequent visits. It was now on my list of ‘must have’ snacks in the Magic Kingdom.
I’m not sure why – but the Cheshire café stopped selling these lovely treats. I don’t know why they did – I can just tell you that I miss them! I have to chalk this one up to a ‘Why Disney? WHY?’ decision that I will never understand. If someone in food services at Disney is reading this, can you bring them back? Pretty please? While I like Sprinkles – I don’t want to have to go to Disney Springs for a good cupcake!
