Guest Review: Wilderness Lodge S'mores Cupcake

I am SUPER excited to start off the week with a guest post from Melissa Sue of the wonderful blog, Mouse on the Mind!!  She has some gorgeous pics and a review of a classic Disney cupcake to share.  Here's Melissa:

Happy Monday, pixie-dusted friends! This week's sweet treat is a trendy take on a classic, childhood delight at one of the coziest resorts on property …

Have you guessed yet that we're talking about the S'mores Cupcake from Roaring Fork at Wilderness Lodge? Because we are!

I purchased this delicious beauty back in October 2012 to split with a girlfriend during one of my many solo trips to the World. It was a gorgeous early fall day, and we decided to take it up to the exterior balcony, overlooking the Lodge's gorgeous terraced yard.

It was a beautiful day, and our visit was timed perfectly to coincide with pool games, so we had an excellent soundtrack to enjoy as we cut the cupcake in half …
This is one of the most unusual cupcakes I've ever tasted! The cake is graham-cracker flavored, which is surprising but it's also warm and slightly spicy. In place of the typical frosting, there's some thick, sticky, ooey-gooey lightly browned marshmallow on top.

But where's the chocolate? There is a single square of Hershey's chocolate on top and another embedded in the middle of the cupcake … but it's not warm or liquid  … it's just a square of chocolate. So don't expect the real roasty, toasty s'more experience here.

Overall, it was a very unique take on a s'more, and my companion and I enjoyed it. Not sure I'd order it again … but that's more due to the fact that there are so many delicious cupcake options to be found around Bay Lake! Onto the next one!!

Have you tried the Roaring Fork's s'mores-inspired dessert? Let us know what you thought!
