Boardwalk Bakery

 

I entered the newly remodeled bakery for the first time (as it was still under construction during my last trip in March) and was impressed by the larger size. There was no one in line in front of me so knowing exactly what I wanted, I went straight up to the counter to order. I was told that they didn’t have any of the Napoleon pastries available for purchase…but wait, they would have a fresh batch out in about 15 – 20 minutes. Since I still had plenty of time, I had no problem with waiting…plus it gave me a chance to check out and photograph the other offerings in their display cases.

First some breakfast pastries…

 

Chocolate Chip Mickey Muffins, Assorted Muffins (including blueberry and chocolate chip), Sticky Buns, and Cinnamon Buns

 

Danish, Brioche Rum Raisin Twists, Apple Tarts, and Jersey Crumb Cake

 

Cranberry-Orange Muffins, Chocolate and Plain Croissants

And then some desserts…

 

Holiday Cupcakes, Tiramisu, Salted Caramel Ganache, Cheesecake Brownies, Mango Vanilla Panna Cotta, Cannoli, Carrot Cake, Fruit Tarts, and Minnie Oreo Head Cakes

 

Strawberry Cupcakes, Mickey Oreo Head Cakes, and Key Lime Tarts

 

Oreo Cupcakes, Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar Cakes, Lemon Meringue Tarts, Eclairs, and Peanut Butter, Banana, & Candied Bacon Pies

Soooo…as I’m standing there waiting on my Napoleon, I can’t resist the temptation to get a few other things. After all, I now had that big bag that would make it easy to carry my purchases, right???

I got a couple of things that I knew my daughter would like, as she would be arriving at WDW later that day…

 

Chocolate Croissant – $2.99

 

 

Chocolate Chip Cookie – $2.39

 

And just because it looked soooo good…

 

Holiday Cupcake – Chocolate cake with Peppermint Frosting $4.19

Once they brought out my Napoleon, I asked that they put it on a plate and box up the other three items to go. Then I went outside and found a table along the boardwalk so that I could eat my Napoleon. But first I removed the croissant and cookie from their box to take a picture of each, and then opened the plastic container which held the cupcake in order to get a better photo of the cupcake. It was about this time that I noticed that the people sitting at the table next to me were watching me take photos of my food and were quite amused. So being the ornery person that I am, I decided to really put on a show for them by taking another photo of my cupcake…

 

Moving it slightly, I then took another…

 

…and yet another.

 

I carefully placed everything back into their containers and put them in my bag, then turned my attention to the …

 

Napoleon – $3.99

Then moved it and took a photo from a slightly different angle…

 

…and then another.

 

Then I couldn’t keep a straight face any longer, so I looked at the people who were still watching me intently, winked, and started giggling. Gotcha! :laughing:

Anyway, getting back to the primary reason that I was here, the Napoleon. I’m happy to report that it was just as good as the old version from the French bakery. In fact, with the added bonus of the chocolate-dipped strawberry on top, it may have been even better.
