Not sure whose having more fun documenting these Allergy Friendly and Plant Based cupcakes… me or the Disney Culinary Staff who comes up with the ideas!

We’re back with the latest update, a Springtime design.

Since Halloween of 2022, we’ve seen 6 monthly makeovers for the Allergy and Gluten Friendly Cupcake at several resorts. So far we’ve gotten a Halloween Theme, a Fall Theme, a Winter Wonderland Theme, a Valentines Day option and a St. Patricks Day. It’s quickly becoming my favorite gluten free and allergy friendly cupcake on property (as my family has multiple food allergies, it’s hard to find one that covers them all!)

***As Always, this is my personal experience. You should check with Restaurant Staff to see if these items are available for You and Your food needs.

Spring (Plant-Based) Fling

Officially it’s labeled as Plant Based, though the recent Disney Foodie guide did list it as Gluten Friendly. This is actually friendly for most allergens using a brand we all know and trust.

This is Top 9 friendly. There’s no Wheat/Gluten, Dairy/Milk, Soy, Egg, Peanut, Tree Nut, Sesame, Fish or Shellfish.

Always happy to include the tip that this can sometimes be dry if its a few days old. It should be soft and not dry. If it tastes ‘old’ and kinda crusty, go ask for a fresher replacement.

This cupcake was three days old (this was the last ‘best buy’ date) and it was like a brick. Had it been my only treat I would have asked the Cast Members at the Register for a replacement (but since it was 8 in the morning I swiped the icing and called it a day!)

Note the picture at how DENSE it is, when it should be lighter and fluffier.

The flavor is very chocolatey/banana as banana is used in the cake base. The icing on top is very soft and light, a perfect dairy free buttercream dupe!

Here’s the Ingredients… It’s made with Namaste Allergy Cupcake Blend and some other plant based and allergy friendly ingredients.
