Welcome Guest Author Becca C. with an out-of-this-world review of the Darth Vader Cupcake at Disney’s Hollywood Studios — an exclusive during Star Wars Weekends!!
Calling all chocolate and peanut butter lovers! There’s a cupcake being sold (yay, it’s back!) during Star Wars Weekends that is defiantly tempting enough to bring this fan to the dark side.
This treat starts with a moist chocolaty cupcake. Then as you can see from my half finished version here they pile on the peanut butter frosting. This was an update to the cupcake last year from it’s previous version, and it’s carried on through this year’s event! This frosting is simplymelt in your mouth wonderful. Very rich and creamy, and it was so thick you would expect it to be the filling in the cupcake instead of the frosting on top.
The addition of cute little chocolate sprinkles and a chocolate drizzle continue the decadence! And it’s followed by even more delicious flavor in the big chunks of shaved chocolate on top.
And for the coup de grâce, the cupcake is topped off with a Darth Vader milk chocolate face. This is seriously rich and challenges even the best chocoholics to finish.
Alas, I had to admit defeat, which made my friend very happy to polish off the rest for me. 😉
This cupcake can be found in multiple locations throughout the park. I picked mine up at Backlot Express so we could snag a table in the air conditioning and catch the Jedi Training show while we ate. I also spotted it on a stop at Starring Rolls. You should be able to snag one at ABC Commissary, Pizza Planet, or Studio Catering Co. as well.
Happy Hunting and may the force be with you! (You will need it to resist the dark side.)
Also of note the Backlot Express, Pizza Planet, ABC Commissary, Studio Catering Co, Rosie’s All-American Cafe, Fairfax Fare and Catalina Eddie’s are all selling the kids power pack in the souvenir R2D2 “popcorn” bucket.
What’s your favorite treat during Star Wars Weekends?
