That is pretty smart. It looks like the took the core of the cupcake out, filled it, then inverted that same piece on top. That way you don't get quite so much icing (not that I don't love icing...), but you still get that huge gourmet cupcake look. Pretty smart indeed.

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".

That's it. There's even a youtube video (somewhere) where the baker from Disney shows how they make them. Yes - they cut a cone shape out of the cupcake, fill it, then put the inverted cone on top and frost it. Makes for those bigger-looking pretty-shaped cupcakes.

With having waaay too much food all week, I only got to try one Disney cupcake - "The King" from Pop Century. It was the chocolate cupcake with the banana filling and peanut butter icing. The filling was great. The cake was just cake - nothing special. And the icing was a bit too overpowering. They should've gone with a lighter PB frosting and a banana cupcake with some chocolate ganache or perhaps a banana frosting with a PB mousse inside. It was good, but not as awesome as it sounded. Was going to try the Tamarind cupcake at AK but they were sold out. The best desserts I had all week were the Chocolate Wave at Coral Reef, the sticky toffee bread pudding at Rose & Crown, and the pear something-or-other (it was kind of like a danish) at Biergarten.

Giving a bump since we're about a month away from our next trip. Any recent visits to Contempo Cafe? They always have great cupcakes.

I haven't a clue how that would work out while on a cruise.

I'm pretty sure the top one is from Roaring Forks, the QS at Wilderness Lodge and the bottom one is from the Boardwalk Bakery.

I guess I was kidding myself when I thought I could stay on weight watchers while at the world. I want a white chocolate elephant.
