I was expecting a lot from the bakeries at Disneyland Paris. I had seen so many pictures of the amazing food that people were eating at Disneyland in the USA that I had a feeling I’d be eating some amazing food at Disneyland Paris. Unfortunately, I was mistaken. The Cable Car Bake Shop at Disneyland Paris was a HUGE disappointment.
Things started out hopeful when I saw the outside of the Bake Shop. It had a quaint store front with a big Bake Shop sign and I was excited to head inside!
But the excitement stopped there.
As I entered the Bake Shop I noticed immediately the lack of selection of confections they had to offer. The shelves in the case were half empty and what they did have… well I’d seen those pastries, cakes and cookies in every other store in the park. There was nothing special. I was so underwhelmed, that I didn’t even take a picture. The photo below is from DLPGuide.com and I included it just to give you an idea of what I saw… although when I was there, there was only half of what’s pictured to choose from.
As I checked out what the Bake Shop had to offer, the cupcakes at the very end caught my eye. I thought MAYBE there was some hope… they had CUPCAKES! But, alas, they were frozen, processed, premade offsite cupcakes. Gross. They didn’t even look appealing. I mean, they looked so bad that I didn’t even buy one.
I did however, post this picture to Instagram immediately and proclaim my horror and disappointment.
I mean really… I get that I was in Europe and cupcakes aren’t a big here. But COME ON! They even had the glow of just coming out of the freezer still. There’s no way I’d eat them.
I left the Cable Car Bake Shop so disappointed. Like, seriously disappointed. I was so looking forward to eating some delicious baked yummies at Disneyland Paris too. *sigh*
I will say though that Disneyland Paris did partially redeem itself at dinner later that evening. We stopped at The Steakhouse in the Village at Disneyland Paris and my meal came with a mini cheesecake for dessert.
I’m not a huge fan of cheesecake, but I thought I’d give it a try and OH MY… it was probably one of the best cheesecakes I’d ever had! Thick graham cracker crust, creamy cheesecake and a raspberry sauce that was TO DIE FOR! This dessert actually became the inspiration for a cheesecake I made that I’ll be posting for National Cheesecake Day later this week!
Dave ordered the creme brulee and although I only had one bite of it… it was so deliciously good!
So… if you’re headed to Disneyland Paris I’d suggest skipping the Bake Shop and ordering dessert at The Steakhouse!
