    LOL. Thanks!

    Thanks a bunch!

    I think I walked all of the weight off. But boy, did I put a little on the week after I got home!

    Glad to help!

    THanks, Hallie!

    Ah, vacation seems to be the best time to have dessert for a true meal. After we had dinner at AoA, we went over to the monorail resorts to visit for a while.

    I've heard a lot about the cupcakes at the Contempo Cafe and I wanted to know if they could live up to the hype.

    We had never eaten there before, but it was easy enough. We bypassed the little area to place the orders to go straight to the bakery counter.

    I chose a lemon creme cupcake. This one intrigued me simply because it was the last one in the case. No other reason. Now, I love lemon flavored things, so it was not like it was an off the wall choice for me.

    The cupcake had a very nice surprise inside: a creme filling similar to a lemon doughnut filling. I loved it.

    Sweetie got the red velvet cheesecake cupcake. This one we got to compare with the ones at Starring Rolls later on in the week.

    What a cute little half-buried Mickey in there!

    And the inside of the cupcake:

    This cupcake was delicious, yet at the same time, extremely rich. I remember taking a taste of it and feeling as if I was on the verge of a toothache.

    Our take on the cupcakes at Contempo Cafe?

    In the end, to me they are not as good as the ones at Starring Rolls. I don't know why there seems to be such a big difference to me, but there is.

    Our reviews:
    Service: 3 (you know, I was not pleased at all with the castmembers there, and we ate there twice.)
    Atmosphere: 4 It was nice to have the monorail running above our heads, but I feel like the food court just is not large enough.
    Food Quality: 3
    Value: 3 (sticker shock first day--after this we were on the DxDP, and I think it made for a little less shock.)
    Overall: 3.25

    This is the second review I have read that mentions the lemon cupcakes at Contempo Cafe. Just working out how I can get one on our last trip - may have to stop at the Contemporary en route to MK one day...
