The Citrus Shortcake at EPCOT’s Flower & Garden Festival

Lovers of citrus-flavored anything, unite! We have numerous products to try at this year’s Taste of EPCOT Global Flower & Garden Pageant, and a cease by The Citrus Blossom Outside Kitchen area just could possibly be the excellent position to begin.

My cease at the Citrus Blossom had me attempting the Citrus Shortcake. In accordance to the Festival Passport, the shortcake attributes orange chiffon cake, lemon curd, mandarins, whipped product, and citrus crumble.

I am an individual who loves slathering lemon curd all about freshly baked scones on a working day off. In simple fact, truth of the matter be instructed, though I delight in the scones, I consider I really like the lemon curd extra. It really is vibrant and pungent (in a very good way), and its tart flavor is some thing that generally leaves me seeking much more. So, if you’re going to say that lemon curd is getting used in a Disney food stuff merchandise, let’s hope it can be all the things it ought to be.

Sad to say, the lemon curd currently being employed in the Citrus Shortcake just isn’t as pucker-inducing as I would like. The chiffon cake is beautiful, light-weight and airy just like you would expect a chiffon cake to be. The whipped product is truly excellent, and the citrus crumble, whilst not automatically abundant, was a wonderful, sugary contact.

I identified that the canned mandarin oranges didn’t truly increase to the deal with in actuality, I felt they detracted a little bit from what was hoping to be an elevated snack. The Citrus Shortcake is surely attractive to glimpse at, but in general, the mandarins just weren’t desired.

The violas that top rated the cake are edible, and if you at any time ate grass on a whim as a kid, you know what they flavor like. It is pleasurable to do at the time, but right after having the violas on the Citrus Shortcake, it’s not some thing I sense I need to have to do yet again any time before long.

The shortcake expenditures $4.50, and, it is really unhappy to say, but I would not be repurchasing it. Thankfully, though this 1 was a little bit of a overlook, there are lots of other citrus-encouraged treats and treats to try to eat at the pageant this 12 months!
