Are you ready for some rose gold REALNESS? Well, than this month’s Best Bites is for you! Alongside some amazing new items across Walt Disney World Resort, we’re kicking off 2018 with a brand-new addition to Disney’s family of rose gold offerings: a ROSE GOLD MINNIE MOUSE CUPCAKE! This absolutely adorable vanilla cupcake is now available at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot and is topped with chocolate-hazelnut swirls, rose gold buttercream, fondant ears, edible glitter and chocolate pearls. I had the opportunity to try this cupcake myself, and I can definitely say it’s a new favorite. It also makes for a perfect “Insta”-opportunity.
