As for the other desserts, we’ll start down Main Street, USA, with the White Chocolate Bavarian Diamond Strawberry-Rhubarb Shortcake at Carnation Cafe. The name kind of says it all. However, a little more detail reveals that this concoction is a white chocolate mousse on top of vanilla cake dressed with fresh strawberries and rhubarbs in a sweet sauce. The cool thing about this shortcake is that the mousse is shaped like an upside-down diamond.

Over at Blue Bayou Restaurant in New Orleans Square, guests have an opportunity to try the Meyer Lemon Crème Brûlée Tart. The ingredients suggest a zesty and creamy experience. Meyer lemon flavor is infused into the cream mixture, while the sugar crusted top is caramelized. There is also a blueberry compote, as well as a silver-colored chocolate diamond.

In Disney California Adventure park, Wine Country Trattoria will feature something called Diamond Tiramisù. A bit fancier than the norm, this decadent delight has ladyfingers drenched with espresso and Marsala wine with creamy mascarpone. It’s finished off with fine cocoa powder, chocolate curls and an espresso sauce.

Last, but certainly not least, is the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration Chocolate Cake. Don’t let the simple name fool you, this thing is fabulous. It’s a chocolate layer cake filled with rich caramel ganache, fleur de sel, crispy pearls of chocolate, fluffy chocolate mousse, apricot compote, and Pabana mousse. The last ingredient is a combination of passion fruit, mango, banana and lemon. It’s coated with chocolate ganache. Sitting atop this masterpiece is a silver diamond made of chocolate.

The Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration Chocolate Cake will be available at numerous locations around the resort. At Disneyland, check out Plaza Inn, French Market, Café Orléans or Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante. Only one location, Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta, has it at Disney California Adventure park. It’s also being offered at Steakhouse 55 inside the Disneyland Hotel.

This list of delightful desserts sounds absolutely fantastic. I’m looking forward to sampling each one during the 60th Anniversary.
