Disney World Cupcake of the Week

 Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcake

Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcake: Most of the time when I think about Red Velvet cake I think of a dry cake. This cupcake has now changed my way of thinking. This cupcake is a real masterpiece. The red velvet cupcake itself is moist and is a perfect companion to the topping. The topping is an exquisite layering of thick cream cheese frosting with a center of actual cheesecake. Then the whole thing is drizzled with chocolate and covered in toffee pieces. The cold, creamy-firm texture and tangy taste are a great balance to the cupcake and the frosting. This cupcake will have your tastebuds singing! You can find this masterpiece at Starring Rolls Cafe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Stop by next time and treat yourself to this tempting little morsel!
