    The Bakery Shop in the food court at Disney’s Pop Century Resort at Walt Disney World has made the King Cupcake, as tribute to the King of Rock ‘n Roll.


    Disney Pop Century Resort celebrates pop culture from the 1950s onward, so it’s a perfectly themed dessert fit for, well, a king. One of Elvis’ favorite sandwiches was peanut butter, banana and bacon, so this sweet is a riff on that unusual combo. Even better than a sandwich, this is a moist chocolate cupcake filled with banana custard and topped with a whipped peanut butter icing. And just for Elvis, there’s a flourish of candied bacon and a chocolate Pop Century logo atop.

    Cost is $3.99 and counts as a snack on the Disney Dining Plan.

    That does look good Wendy, and very moist too.

    I'll stick with the Guinness and Bailey's cupcakes Herself makes. :D

    It's not that it sounds so bad, because I like all of the flavors, just not together.

    Did someone call my name? :-D

    Long live the King!! Sounds interesting. I'm not so sure about the chocolate cupcake part. Seems a vanilla cupcake might have been a better choice.

    If it was just the chocolate cake with the banana filling it sounds great, just not the peanut butter and bacon! :lol:
    I am not a fan of WDW cupcakes though, not enough cake and way of much frosting on most of them for me!
