    So very true! Much like with ice cream, proper temp makes all the difference. As for frosting - if you ever watch shows like Cupcake Wars, you can see that the fillings and frostings are the stars of the show. I think that's because that's where the decorator touches come in, and there can be a lot more variation in frostings than in cake. I live near a bakery that won Cupcake Wars and their everyday offerings are the same idea - it's all about the fillings and frostings. Their fillings and frostings are quite good (they use quality ingredients), although their cake, to me, is eh. I like Duncan Hines just as much. For anyone who wants to make a truly outstanding cupcake at home, I highly recommend Gina Neely's banana cupcakes. PHENOMENAL. I don't do her molasses frosting though - I use buttercream or buttercream with a hint of maple.

    Some of the cupcakes on the list are not always available.

    I never used to eat junk in Disney. I knew these cupcakes were out there, but never tried them. This last trip, I made it a point to try some. It was fun.

    Have fun :thumbsup2

    I agree! We went around specifically to try as many cupcakes and pastries we could find and had such a good time doing something new! We found so many yummy things for good prices too! 99% of them were snack credits. I can't wait to do it again next year!

    I thought it was odd that this one still looks like Halloween but it states it's for November!

    Next up for November, a fall classic: pumpkin with maple icing topped with sugared pecans and Mickey Ears.

    They didn't when I was there. Honestly, they should get rid of the Oreo Bonbon and replace it with the PB. The Oreo was not good. Maybe you can get it at another location in Disney. The CM did ask the baker that question, but instead of answering, he just made if for me.

    Starring Rolls has the Chocolate PB cupcake. Totally different, but if you are craving PB- I think it will satisfy you. The inside was like a glob of chocolate PB. You can just smell the PB when you pick up that cupcake.

    The cupcake crawl says they have a PB cupcake at the MS Bakery. It just looks like the frosting is PB. I didn't look when I was there.

    They have a chocolate PB at Starring Roll- DHS.

    I tried the Chocolate PB Cupcake from Starring Rolls in September and it has got to be my favorite cupcake ever. When I first saw it, I thought it would be too rich and chocolaty, however, I found it to be just right (I washed it down with white milk which helped a lot). Now I am craving one of those but unfortunately we will not be returning to WDW until 2014....I wonder if they sell something similar in DLR :goodvibes.

    No, they're only available at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Above each photo, it says exactly where in DHS the cupcakes are available at. :)

    They have some fantastic cupcakes at DL! My two favorites are the Black Forest cupcake at the Village haus in Fantasyland and the lemon honeybee cupcake at the Hungry Bear in Critter Country!

    So in everyone's opinion who's tried them, which chocolate PB cupcake is the best? Main Street Bakery, Boardwalk, Contempo or Starring Rolls?
    Of course if they no longer offer it at Boardwalk I guess that makes a difference, but I'm looking for the best one to get while I'm there and since I'm not on the dining plan I need to be selective ;)
    I'm usually more of a brownie person (unless the cake is super moist) but hearing about all these cupcakes makes me want to try one!

    So while technically not AT Disney, here's a "cupcake" I made for my blog using a Disney recipe. Turned out beyond awesome.

    Chocolate Cream Cheese Buckle from Cinderella's Royal Table.

    I got it from a friend at WDW and they told me how they served it back in the day and the evolution of the recipe when I was getting the Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich recipe for my blog. But it's also published in one of the cookbooks.
