It’s a party, so you’re allowed to eat dessert first. For the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, here are six new sweets for 60 years, and they’ll stay on the menu throughout the celebration.

Disneyland Park Diamond Lemon Cupcake at Jolly Holiday Bakery Café – This lemony cupcake has white chocolate crunchy pearls, strawberry filling and is topped with white chocolate Champagne mousse, blue buttercream decoration, blue chocolate curls, silver coated white chocolate pearls and a chocolate “D.” Almost too pretty to eat!

Disney California Adventure Park Diamond Orange Cupcake at Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Café – If you prefer orange, try this cupcake with chocolate crunchy pearls, mixed berry filling and a topping of cream cheese Bavarian mousse. The decoration is pretty silver dust pearls, blue buttercream trim and a chocolate diamond. Yum!

Diamond Tiramisù at Wine Country Trattoria, Disney California Adventure Park – This is a fancy sweet ending: layers of tiramisù made from sweetened Italian mascarpone, Marsala wine and espresso-soaked ladyfingers topped with cocoa powder and finished with chocolate curls and espresso sauce.

Meyer Lemon Crème Brûlée Tart at Blue Bayou Restaurant, Disneyland Park – Tangy and creamy Meyer lemon crème brûlée in a crunchy sweet tart shell topped with blueberry compote and a sparkly silver chocolate diamond – eat it or Instagram?

White Chocolate Bavarian Diamond Strawberry-Rhubarb Shortcake at Carnation Cafe, Disneyland Park – A little old-fashioned, a little upscale, this is smooth and creamy white chocolate Bavarian mousse shaped like a diamond resting on vanilla cake finished in a plate with a rich fresh strawberry-rhubarb sauce.

Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration Chocolate Cake – This crowd pleaser is found at Plaza Inn, Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante and French Market Restaurant in Disneyland park, Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta at Disney California Adventure park. Chocolate layer cake with caramel ganache, chocolate crunchy pearls, fleur de sel, apricot compote, Pabana mousse (banana, passion fruit, mango, lemon) and chocolate truffle mousse is topped with chocolate ganache and a sparkly silver chocolate diamond. Celebrate and share it with a friend!

  • what about us gluten free people? know there are a lot of us!

  • I like cupcakes as much as the next person, but what’s with the lemon? That doesn’t seem terrible universal.

  • SO happy these are all sans nuts, husband is allergic. @ Kimberly, the cupcakes come in two citrus flavors at two different locations making it 6 desserts. Same presentation. Sneaky, sneaky!

  • I agree with posters above. A Gluten Free treat, that isn’t a pre-packaged cookie or brownie, would be a welcome addition. It would be quite simple to make a gluten free rendition of the creme brulee (at least). I grow weary of dining out when my friends and family ordering delicious deserts, and my daughter (who is 2 1/2) and I sitting idly by, or munching on a subpar prepackaged brownie. I know that the central bakery will make a GF cake, and they are delicious- so I’m looking for some answers as to why this isn’t wider spread. These all look delicious, and due to having Celiac Disease, I am unable to partake.

  • I have many of the Disney recipe book collection published by Pam Brandon. I love to recreate Disney foods from those books. So I have to ask, where are the above recipes or the link to them?

  • Um…. am I missing a picture?!? I only see FIVE desserts… my favorite part! And yes, I do eat dessert first! 😉 Going for my birthday in July – can’t wait to try them ALL – just wanted pix to help decide which one to try first!!!! =)

  • I’m with Susan from BC….are any of these available gluten free? I hope that they are thinking about the gluten free crowd, I’m getting tired of seeing all these wonderful treats but no mention of gluten free. I will be there June 7-9 and will be looking for them!

  • Hi!
    When does the Diamond Celebration officially end? I will be in the Parks September 9 – 12 and want to partake in the deliciousness of these special desserts.

  • Are any of these available Gluten-Free?
