Before this thread I had my exciting week at WDW all planned out! Every minute of it! However now, I can guarantee that I will be making a stop at the Contempo Cafe most likely on my first park day !

The only thing that is not certain, is if I am going to walk away from there with one cupcake or what now looks like two, or even three! Heaven help me lol!!

Thank you Ilivetogo for those pics !

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

We just returned from WDW on Sunday and tried the chocolate peanut butter cupcake from Starring Rolls. Oh my gosh that was the best cupcake that I have ever eaten. DD11 and I shared it, but then my DD9 decided to taste it and she loved it too.

Brilliant, I love it! Thanks again Ilivetogo! I am sitting here on my sofa and your pictures make help me transport myself there somehow . I can imagine/feel what I love about the place ! Regarding this bakery I plan to head in here too, right after my dinner at Cape May. I know I'll have to push myself a little because I'll probably be stuffed and not in the mood but I'll have to remember how I felt sitting here at home. I'm dying to taste 3 from here, the cheesecake brownie, the peanut butter cake and this cupcake! If I only walk away with one, is it the bon bon that you would recommend?

Don't get me wrong, I like a good box cake and make them more often than scratch, but I can always tell the difference. And canned icing tastes pretty artificial and yucky to me. I like to bake and I grew up with a Mom who's a great cook, so I'm wondering if all the sweet treats will really impress me or just be empty calories. Any baking snobs out there that can weigh in on the homemade yumminess of Disney desserts (if there are any)?

I can say that I did have one cupcake from some sort of bake shop in DTD a couple yrs ago. The cake was average and the frosting was piled higher than any I've ever seen. The frosting was better than I expected but not as good as homemade buttercream (I doubt they used full butter).
I am one of those "baking snobs". I never buy bakery of any kind from the store, I make everything from scratch. I make my own frosting with real butter. I am usually disappointed in baked goods from from any store and some bakeries.
These cupcakes were awesome! They were moist and flavorful and the frosting was delicious! DH and I had the chocolate peanut butter cupcake from the Main St. Bakery. DD had the spaghetti and Meatball cupcake at Mama Melrose's. I tried it and it was really good too.

That's tough to say. I have never had the cheesecake brownie - seen below - it is HUGE tho. I have never had the PB cake either. BUT, even tho I LOVE Oreos, this was probably my least favorite cupcake of all the ones we had because the frosting is whipped cream, not icing. I don't like whipped cream. I also would have liked it better if the cupcake was chocolate. It tased too "white" for my taste.

Okay good to know, thanks! I love cheesecake and brownies so that's that then, and huge is also good ! I'm doing low carb right now so I have a jar of peanut butter in my fridge and well, what could be better than that? So this brownie I think will win over the cake to, if I only choose one item. And I should, since I'll probably be solo! My best friend is still in 'deciding' mode, ugh!
p.s. I also go by Kris when I'm w my friends in the states but here where I live Kris actually means disaster or crisis . Which sometimes, when in regards to myself, well it can be appropriate :P.

Let me just say, to the person that posted to pics of the Contempo cupcakes: the strawberry lemonade one was the only one we didn't get to try! However, the peanut butter cup was EXCEPTIONAL. BEST EVER!!!!
