Chocolate Raspberry Seasonal Cupcake at Jolly Holiday Bakery

For some reason, I don't usually get cupcakes when I go to Disneyland. Probably because I am craving a churro, Dole whip, ice cream, or any number of other treats that you have seen on my blog. Recently, I heard about how good this cupcake was and I decided to give it a try. 
The chocolate raspberry cupcake can be found at Jolly Holiday Bakery located across from Sleeping Beauty Castle. 
 The presentation of this cupcake is great. It almost looks too good to eat. It is made up of chocolate cake filled with a raspberry cream filling, topped with chocolate mousse, dipped in chocolate, with chocolate curls surrounding the edge, a decorated white chocolate disk and a fresh raspberry placed on top, and the whole thing dusted with edible glitter. It's a generous size and worth the $4.99, in my opinion.
I hated to do it, but here's what the inside looked like once I cut into it. It tasted just as good as it originally appeared. It's definitely a new favorite. Gotta catch this one before it's gone for the season.

Lunch at Flo's V8 Cafe in Cars Land

The holiday season is long gone, but I never posted the lunch I had at Flo's V8 Cafe in Disney's California Adventure. I hope you don't mind seeing the holiday decorations now.
Flo's is one of my favorite places in Cars Land. While standing in front of Flo's Cafe, it feels like you could have stepped into the movie. If you haven't seen it, you must watch the movie Cars before you go.
Flo's decor and comfort food are like that of a 1950's diner. I really like the restaurant, but especially one room in particular. It's designed like a classic car with two-tone bench seats and head rests, huge rear view mirror, and taillight chandelier. 
Now, on to the food. I had the pork loin with Coca-Cola barbecue sauce, peas and carrots, baked beans, and a garlic chive dinner roll for $11.49. I really enjoyed this meal. My plate was nearly clean when i was done. 
I thought the holiday cup was cute.
Here is my brother's plate. He had the roast beef, mashed potatoes, baked beans and garlic chive dinner roll, but he subbed the gravy for the barbecue sauce for $11.99. He cleaned his plate as well. 
You can check out the rest of the menu here.
 And this room has a great view of the Radiator Springs Racers attraction. It's fun to watch the cars race by.
I really enjoy this restaurant and look forward to trying some other dishes off the menu. I really want to try the french toast on the breakfast menu. Maybe the next time I stroll down Route 66.
