It may look like dinner, but this sweet treat -- aptly named 'On Top of Spaghetti' -- is most certainly a dessert. Designed to wow and distract the kids at the Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano in Disney’s Hollywood Studios long enough for their parents to finish their wine, the On Top of Spaghetti cupcake is an incredibly popular menu item selling in excess of nine dozen of them a day. If the dogs from Lady and the Tramp were faced with this tasty morsel, I sincerely doubt there would be any romantic sharing involved.
The famous cake features a moist chocolate cake base topped with piped vanilla buttercream crowned with a "meatball" fashioned out of chocolate cake and rolled in chocolate sprinkles. The whole lot is doused with strawberry "red sauce" and sprinkled with shaved white chocolate "parmesan." Although it was designed with the kids in mind, don't be too surprised if you see more than a couple of adults going to town on this kitschy number.
With all the appearance of a savory, these On Top of Spaghetti cupcakes are as delicious as they are deceptive.
