Women’s History Month is being celebrated throughout the month of March. It’s a declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. Of course, Disney is joining in on the celebrations, and they have found a unique way to celebrate this special time. Over at Walt Disney World, the Chefs have picked three female Imagineers that have created the design of some of the most iconic attractions at Magic Kingdom. The chosen three women are Dorothea Redmond, Marry Blair, and Leota (Toombs) Thomas.
Dorothea Redman’s inspired cupcake is absolutely gorgeous. She was part of creating the Cinderella mosaic design on the walls inside the Cinderella Castle. Her cupcake is topped with the Cinderella mosaic (the scene where she is transformed before the ball). This is a Champagne-flavored cake filled with fresh raspberry champagne compote, finished with gold champagne buttercream, mosaic tile sprinkles, and chocolate garnish; the raspberry and champagne flavors are meant to remind you of the castle. This Cinderella Castle Mosaic Cupcake can be found at select outdoor food and beverage carts on Main Street, U.S.A.
Mary Blair helped with the design of “it’s a small world,” and her inspired cupcake has a beautiful color palette of blue and yellow and is topped with the signature small world clock. This cupcake is unique because once you slice it open, there is an explosion of colorful sprinkles, which is exactly what guests get when riding the attraction (an explosion of colors, not sprinkles!). This is a lemon funfetti cake, blue raspberry buttercream, and vanilla-lemon buttercream. You can find this “it’s a small world” Cupcake at Friar’s Nook.
Disney Legend and Imagineer Leota (Toombs) Thomas is the third woman chosen for this month. The image of her face reciting the infamous incantation was projected onto a featureless head model inside the Haunted Mansion. Her cupcake is, of course, darker than the other two and is a chocolate cupcake with gorgeous purple frosting and is topped with Madame Leota in her crystal ball. This is a chocolate-cherry cake filled with black cherry-lime cream finished with blackberry buttercream. You can find this Madame Leota Cupcake at Liberty Square Market.
You can get a closer look at each cupcake and hear from the Chef who designed these in the Disney Parks TikTok below!
