Disney World Now Has Rose Gold Unicorn Cupcakes That Actually Sparkle

It's so pretty!

Not long after unveiling an amazing looking macaron treat at Disneyland in California, Florida’s Walt Disney World now has its own delicious new dessert.

There are now unicorn cupcakes on the menu at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa!

The Rose Gold Unicorn Cupcake is available now at the resort’s Gasparilla Island Grill. The name alone is a mouthful, and they are absolutely mouthwatering. The cupcakes start with a rose gold sponge cake and hazelnut cream cheese filling.

Then, it’s topped with a heavenly dollop of buttercream frosting. The cupcake is then decked out with dreamy details, like an edible chocolate unicorn horn, pastry ears and sweet rose-gold frosting for the mane. Guys, these cupcakes even sparkle.

These new treats are so enticing, some visitors have even claimed to have gobbled them up for breakfast. Honestly, given that Gasparilla Island Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, these handheld sweets seem like a good choice at all hours.

Just look how ornate this thing is! It’s almost a shame to eat it.

Because I’m an adult and I can have cupcakes for breakfast if I want to. 😝 How beautiful is the Rose Gold Unicorn Cupcake from Gasparilla Island Grill at the Grand Floridian!? Though with how beautiful it was, it left me feeling like I paid for a photo. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t terrible, but I wasn’t floored and wouldn’t eat it again. The cupcake itself was a bit soggy and the filling inside was less than impressive. It was supposed to be a hazelnut buttercream, but all I could taste was buttercream and there was not much of it. I’ve never been a huge fan of Disney cupcakes though, so it could be the cupcake snob in me coming out. Try it if you feel the need, but I feel like I wasted calories. #unicorncupcake #unicorn #disneycupcakes #disneyfood #grandfloridian #wdw #disneyresort #magickingdomresorts #diningdisney #gasparillaislandgrill #orlando #orlandofoodie #centralfloridafood #orlandofood #breakfast #cupcake #cupcakesforbreakfast #rosegold #foodart #foodislove #sweets #iifym #foodoverdudes #fitfoodie #eatingfortheinsta #disney #dessert #hazlenut #buttercream #dailyfoodfeed
