Wreath Cupcake

Frosting on frosting! This cupcake is for those of us who eat cake for the sugary stuff on top. The Red Velvet Wreath Cupcake will please dessert lovers of many kinds. Walt Disney World puts out a lot of cupcakes, so when they stand out we have to take note!

This Red Velvet Wreath Cupcake is the Perfect Disney Treat for the Holidays

Red Velvet is a great flavor of cake to have around the holidays, not just because it’s tasty, but because it has a beautiful red color. This cupcake does a great job of contrasting that with a layer of bright white vanilla buttercream frosting, then another layer of frosting that’s a vivid green color. We weren’t lying about the frosting! There’s a lot of it! The gorgeous wreath on top is festooned with a red chocolate bow to complete the Christmas look.

As if this cake wasn’t already packing moisture, there’s a filling inside too. Once you break into it, you’ll find a cream cheese mousse. Because it wouldn’t really be red velvet cake without cream cheese somewhere! The cupcake would already have been a treat without this hidden addition, but it honestly makes a big difference. This is not a dry cupcake and the flavors of each component are distinctive. Often, we can’t truly taste cream cheese in a mousse or frosting, and more than likely frostings end up tasting like pure sugar. This treat was not like that. If you love cupcakes or red velvet cake or frosting, this is a worthwhile stop!
