Cheshire Cafe Gourmet Cake Cups ~ Written by Guest Author Dawn Mathis Losch
**Update from Krista October 28, 2013: This treat is no longer being offered in the Magic Kingdom at this time. We hope they will bring it back one day!***
I just got back from one of my monthly trips to Disney, where I had to try the new Gourmet cupcake at the Cheshire cafe in Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland.
The Cheshire cafe used to be the Enchanted Grove. It has been updated with lots of pretty vines, and a pink striped smiling Cheshire cat on the sign. They sell cereals, muffins, fruit, slushies, and coffee now as well.
As soon as I saw the news about a new item being offered, I could not wait to try it. I am not a chocolate fan,so vanilla was the way to go.
The gourmet cupcakes are offered in a Chocolate coffee-ish flavor called Mad Hatter mocha, and Cheshire cupcake cake cup, which was vanilla.
It is a parfait looking dessert with layers of vanilla frosting, (lots of it), and vanilla cake. It is topped full of fun colored sprinkles.
You will definitely want to have your sweet tooth ready, because this is sure to kick it into overdrive.
I think the funnest thing about this dessert was the picture decoration on top. It was totally edible, and it was neat to be eating a sugar picture.
Both the cupcake cups were reasonably priced at 4.19. I shared mine with my husband and daughter.

These look amazing! I say: The more frosting the better! 🙂
We are here today and they just told us they don’t have them any more!!!! What?!?!?!? We are here from San Diego, California and after reading about it on the Disney food blog just days ago how can that be? Something’s not right about that!
Aw, I’m sorry to hear that Marcie! Is the sign still there?
Nope. No sign. My husband was trying to surprise me when we got here by sharing one of them with me. Turns out he was the one unpleasantly surprised. We can’t believe it! The lady at the Cheshire Cat said, ‘yeah, we used to have them.’ 😦
Perhaps they were Limited Time Magic. Thanks for letting me know about this. Don’t forget there are a lot of special and new things out for the season, and some wonderful classic options as well! Let me know if you need suggestions. I hope he can find you a replacement that is just as wonderful. Best wishes to you guys – and have a magical vacation!
Yes, we’ve done just fine finding replacements! 🙂 We come out here as often as we can (this time it’s just us two…in 3 weeks it’s us, the kids, and my husband’s parents), but this is the first time I’ve made it out with my husband for the Food and Wine Festival because I’m a teacher and it’s hard to take off this time of year. I did it, though, and am thoroughly enjoying it. Thanks so much for your kind words. We are definitely having a magical time!
