We aren’t at Graceland to celebrate Elvis Presley’s birthday today, but you can bet we’re making a beeline to the Bakery Shop in the food court at Disney’s Pop Century Resort at Walt Disney World Resort for an excuse to dig into The King Cupcake, a tribute to the King of Rock ‘n Roll.
Disney Pop Century Resort celebrates pop culture from the 1950s onward, so it’s a perfectly themed dessert fit for, well, a king. One of Elvis’ favorite sandwiches was peanut butter, banana and bacon, so this sweet is a riff on that unusual combo. Even better than a sandwich, this is a moist chocolate cupcake filled with banana custard and topped with a whipped peanut butter icing. And just for Elvis, there’s a flourish of candied bacon and a chocolate Pop Century logo atop.
Cost is $3.99 and counts as a snack on the Disney Dining Plan.
I tried this last night for dessert. All I can say is “Thank you, thank you very much” (in my best Elvis voice) for letting us know!
Yet another reason Pop Century is my ‘go to’ value resort! I recommend it, and the tie dye cheesecake, to everyone!
I’ve had the tie-dye cheesecake. Very fun!
Woo Hoo heck with the calories I know what I’m having for breakfast this morning It needs a little Elvis or Hound Dog topper though 🙁 How long will this be available ? Thanks LOVE POP
I wish you had said something yesterday, because I would have gone out of my way to get there today to get one (or two.)
Will it be there next week???
Yes! It’s a regular item at this location.
Please tell me this isn’t a limited time only cupcake!
No, it’s not part of Limited Time Magic, the cupcake is offered year round!
*drools* That looks delicious. I wish my Disney trip hadn’t ended two weeks ago. And my Art of Animation hotel room was right next to the bridge to Pop Century too!
Why am I currently states away? I want this immediately.
