Spring is sprung (well, some places, anyway), and Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe in Disneyland has a few new menu items to check out!
And you don’t even have to wait until March 20, when the new season officially begins. Jolly Holiday is already sporting the updated menu! Let’s take a peek at some sweet and savory treats.
Mini bundt cakes are all the rage, and JH comes in with this adorable Strawberry Bundt Cake. A thick drizzle of Icing and a Glazed Strawberry are ideal Springtime garnishes.
The bakery’s seasonal Crème Brûlée will feature ripe Raspberries.
Next up, they’ve got a Carrot Cake Cupcake with piped Cream Cheese Frosting. Sadly, it looks teensy tiny to me, and has one of those weird wrappers they’ve been doing over at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Disney World. They’re practically impossible to take off, so it’s really tough to eat these kinds of ‘cakes on the go.
A Key Lime Cheesecake will also make its way into the cases at the bakery! We’re lookin’ a little slim on the graham cracker crust here — hoping that improves!
And of course, we can’t talk Jolly Holiday without highlighting their seasonal Mickey-shaped Macaron! Just in time for Spring (and St. Paddy’s Day!), the latest version is dressed in bright green, and flavored with Pistachio.
Whoopie Pies are some of my all-time favorite Jolly Holiday treats (a Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pie would SUPA AWESOME right now actually…). But this season’s option features those soft Brownie Cakes sandwiched together with White Chocolate Mousse. The Rainbow Sprinkles add a fun touch.
Also incoming is a new Opera Cake (also something that’s being seen on a lot of Disney menus right now), which features Sponge Cake flavored with Almond and soaked in a Coffee Syrup. Ganache, Coffee Buttercream, and Chocolate Glaze complete dessert. Opera Cake is not a dessert I usually enjoy (too much like tiramisu, without the best part of tiramisu — the mascarpone), but if you’re a fan, your day has come!
Java also takes center stage in these Coffee Eclairs.
And it’s not all sweet stuff that’s new for Spring. After 10:30, enjoy some new savory options too, including a Roast Beef and Bleu Cheese Sandwich served on a Baguette, or take advantage of the returning Tuna Salad on Brioche. A Sun-Dried Tomato Caesar Salad gives you a healthy dose of leafy greens, while you can also enjoy a bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup. (Don’t worry; the Tomato Basil Soup will continue to be available as well.)
