Sunday Brunchies and
Crunchies ' Smores Cupcake
June 12, 2011
Author's note: Sunday
Brunchies and Crunchies is a new spin
on Sunday Brunch that explores a single item in WDW.
It could be a snack or a dish or a quick bite. Rather
than dedicate a post to one whole restaurant, we'll be taking a
critical look at some delicious Disney treats and dining
The Board Walk Bakery is probably my most
favorite place to eat on property; it offers quite a large variety
of tasty treats and the overpowering aroma of baked goods is
evermore present here compared to the Main Street Bakery since its
main preparation kitchen is within the same room as the counter.
Today we'll have a quick bite with the Smores
Cupcake. This gigantic, muffin sized cupcake is a
tasty combination of the traditional chocolate, marshmallow, and
graham cracker concoction in cupcake form. The
cupcake is a rich chocolate flavor with a very nice, light and
fluffy texture, differentiating it from a muffin.
The cupcake is filled with a light and airy marshmallow cream and
then topped with a light
and puffs of marshmallow on top. The treat is
finished with a garnish of chocolate sauce and rolled in graham
cracker crumb mixture.
As a cupcake, this treat was delicious.
A nice chocolate cupcake with white frosting and a
marshmallow filling. Though since it was made to
be a smores cupcake, there seemed to be a little more to be desired.
The balance of flavors was a little off, with chocolate
clearly dominating the flavor profile and the marshmallow fluff
being excessive when one thinks of a smore. The
graham cracker element is an interesting interpretation for the
cupcake, though in a real smore it is at least half of the flavor
and texture of the treat. The Board Walk Bakery
offers a delicious cupcake, but its interpretation of smore in
cupcake form could use a little work. I would
like to try making it with a
graham cracker crust bottom cup. The cup
part of the cupcake would be a pre baked or par baked graham cracker
chocolate cake and
marshmallow fluff frosting would fill in the middle and
cupcake top. That way you get more graham cracker
and a nice balance of all the traditional flavors of a smore.
