Vacation Mom took leave of her senses. That’s the only excuse I have for ordering the Kitchen Sink, a monster of a dessert at Disney World’s Beaches and Cream soda shop in the Beach Club resort. Even worse, I made a special reservation at Beaches and Cream to get it and called the Kitchen Sink lunch!
Well, it was definitely filling. And fantastic. How can 8 scoops of ice cream and an entire can of whipped cream (among MANY other ingredients) not be? The 3 of us made a valiant effort but only got about 3/4 of the way through…and that was AFTER I removed the cake and brownies to take back to the hotel for “dinner”.
If you’re going to attempt to scale the Sink, a couple of tips:
- Grownups should go for the coffee ice cream first as the kids might not appreciate the taste.
- As I mentioned, take the cakes out right away to box up (you can always add them back in). 4 brownies and an entire pound cake save a LOT of tummy space.
- If you’re interested in the idea, but not the proportions, there’s a 1/2 size “Mickey Sink” at $23 (that includes a souvenir sink). We considered that one but decided in the end to go all in.
- Don’t order the Sink if you don’t like attention. The lights go down and you get a round of applause for even making the attempt.
