I’m not saying ingesting a princess cake with definitely make you feel like royalty...but it can’t hurt.
Launching today, Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs will be selling princess-themed versions of their classic cakes. The Disney World Resort bakery is known for its classy character-inspired cakes, like cakes shaped and decorated to look like Mickey Mouse’s ears. While prices for the princess cakes haven’t been explicitly stated, Amorette’s cakes typically start at $59. For a limited time, they’ll be adding three princess cakes to their assortment, feeding the insatiable hunger that is the Disney Princess fandom.
The Princess cakes will be available in three waves: the Rapunzel cake is available starting September 27 until September 30; the Moana cake will be sold October 4-7; and the Cinderella cake will being made available October 11-14. Each cake has a chocolate chiffon base and will be made with dark chocolate mousse, raspberry mousse, and white chocolate crispy pearls.
Each cylindrical cake is then decorated to look the Disney princess it’s paying homage to. However, you won’t see gaudy and misshapen frosting illustrations or princess heads made of fondant on these cakes. These aren’t your grocery store princess cake, friends.
Instead, each cake is decorated to look like the outfit of the princess. Rapunzel’s cake comes decorated in a swirl of frosting meant to look like the princess’s golden hair. The Moana cake has an edible version of her Heart of Te Fiti necklace. Cinderella's cake has draping blue decorations meant to mirror her blue dress. They almost look too beautiful to eat. (Only almost though. You did read the part about the dark chocolate mousse, right?)
These limited-edition cakes are part of an expansion to the Disney princess merchandise at Disney World. As part of the “Dream Big, Princess” campaign, Disney is encouraging guests to go full princess at Disney Springs. There will be special marathon showings of your favorite Disney princess films at the AMC in Disney Springs. The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Disney Springs’ princess makeover salon, is getting a makeover of its own. This fall, the boutique will have even more Disney princess dresses for fans to try on. Unfortunately, said fans must fall between the ages of three and 12. Grown-up princesses will have to settle for Etsy-made outfits.

After have a slice or several of a Disney princess cake, you can check out DisneyStyle which is expanding their range of modernized Disney apparel and paraphernalia.
