The Boardwalk Bakery is scaring up some Halloween fun this year. Our twitter followers wanted to see what was inside this Ghost Cupcake! (And, let’s be honest, I did, too!)

No stranger to unique treats of any sort (Peanut Butter, Banana, and Candied Bacon Pie, anyone?), the BoardWalk Bakery has earned its place as a go-to stop for cupcake gems — both seasonal and otherwise.
We’re talking everything from the Red (Velvet), White, and Blue Cupcake to celebrate this past Fourth of July to the recently made-over staples: the Strawberry Cupcake and the (soon to be reviewed here on DFB) Oreo Cupcake. So, it’s not exactly a surprise that the newly renovated Bakery would conjure up a little something (see what I did there?) to commemorate Halloween.
Taking it from the very top, our little ghost friend is formed of fondant, just like the Ghost Cupcake featured at Gaston’s Tavern at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. While technically edible, it’s not recommended. He’s really there for decoration and — clearly — a super high fright factor ;).
Also like Gaston’s version, his ghostly form is supported by a (totally edible!) marshmallow tucked underneath.
The “frosting” is whipped cream (WHY??!??!?!?!???!!!). The whipped topping has been a trend among specialty cupcakes at the BoardWalk Bakery as of late. Blergh.
They tried to hide the fact that it’s WHIPPED CREAM with a swirl of caramel and a sprinkling of candied nuts. Good effort, but still NOT FROSTING.
Anyway, you know my take on the whole thing, so we’ll move on.
You can’t tell from the wrapping, but the base is yellow cake. And the filling? Well, it’s called a “caramel apple” filling, but really it’s pretty much butterscotch pudding with chunks of apple in it. I have no problem with this. I like butterscotch pudding.
It’s cute. Sure. But all in all, as I’m sure you can tell, this isn’t my favorite effort to come from the typical greatness that is BoardWalk Bakery cupcakes.
But Halloween is just days away now, which means — ready or not — the winter holiday cupcakes aren’t far behind. After last year’s Peppermint Cupcake, which was one of the greats, we’ll be stopping by BoardWalk Bakery again the minute the very first Resort Gingerbread House hits the scene to see what’s next!
