On Top of Spaghetti at Disney’s Hollywood Studios…

posted on October 4th, 2011 by Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer

Believe it or not, this is one sweet treat – not a single savory bite. This adorable dessert is only on the kids’ menu at Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and they sell about nine dozen every day, says Chef Christian Rumpler.

Meatball Cupcake from Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Just in case you want to try to make your own, Rumpler says it’s a chocolate cupcake, topped with vanilla buttercream tinted with a touch of yellow that’s piped from a pastry bag with a skinny tip to create the “spaghetti.” (You can make your own pastry bag with a zip-top bag with a small hole clipped in one corner.) The “spaghetti” is topped with a chocolate cake “meatball” (rolled in chocolate sprinkles), drizzled with strawberry “red sauce” and finished with a flourish of white chocolate shavings as a stand-in for the Parmesan cheese.

“We wanted something fun for the kids while mom and dad enjoy their own desserts or finish a glass of wine,” says Rumpler. (Our pick of grown-up sweets is Mama’s Panna Cotta with a tiramisu-flavored custard, ladyfingers and cappuccino cream.)

Have you found any fun desserts we should know about?

One of my kids favorites, along with their “must eat”: Paint your own chocolate puzzle at Yachtman and Tie Dye Cheesecake at POP.

Yeah, I know how you feel.

This is very cute…hopefully it is just as tasty! I am glad to see thematic foods at the restaurants again…I have been very sad to see Disney getting so homogenized…same foods/merchandise/etc everywhere. It has become dull and really lacking imagination. So NOT Disney. Hopefully this is a trend that will continue. :)

Too bad its only for the kids! I’d love to try this dessert!

The Chocolate “Moose” at Le Cellier is my favorite dessert in all of Walt Disney World. It was originally for kids, but now I see as many adults eating it as children. For those who haven’t had one, it is a scoop of chocolate mousse on a dessert plate with Canadian leaf “ears” attached. It is so good!
