We found another awesome new cupcake to share with you! (Well, we found three awesome new cupcakes to share with you, but we’ll focus on this one for today…)
Sunshine Seasons in the Land pavilion of Epcot’s Future World is a quick-service restaurant with ample seating and a large, varied menu. It’s a favorite of DFB readers (and me!), and often wins the top spot when it comes to beloved counter-service restaurants!
It deserves this honor, too! There are plenty of options on the menu, including fresh and unique items. Choose from one of five varied menus!
On my visit last week, though, I headed straight for the Bakery area! I’d heard from a few DFB readers about the new Guava Cream Cheese Cupcake, and I knew I had to try it!
When I got to the bakery case, this lovely item was staring (literally — kind of looks like an eye, doesn’t it?) back at me!
The cupcake is only available here at Sunshine Seasons — a unique addition to this fun location’s menu!
The cake is moist vanilla — very rich for a vanilla cake, in fact. On top is a mound of light cream cheese frosting (when I say “light,” I don’t mean low-calorie — it just had a more whipped and texturally light appearance and feel to it) punctuated with a center of guava jam.
The frosting, though lighter than I usually like it, was very good. A nice, sweet cream cheese taste (you won’t mistake this for vanilla frosting), providing a good balance for the sweet vanilla cake and the tangy guava jam.
I’m calling the guava center a “jam” because it has the consistency of preserves. It’s very much a strong guava flavor — very tangy — so I liked it much better when I combined the bite with cake and frosting versus just eating the guava jam straight up.
Overall, this was a very good cupcake! It doesn’t rank up there with my Butterfinger Cupcake or my Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcake, but it was a unique and interesting set of flavors that I will definitely be back to have again!!
