Vermillion Layer Cake from American Kitchen Bar & Grill at B Resort in Disney Springs Area


Recently, the American Kitchen Bar & Grill invited me to visit for a culinary adventure. The American Café serves as the table service dining option at the B Resort. The restaurant offers some quality table-service dining.

For my recent experience at American Kitchen Bar & Grill, my meal concluded with the Vermillion Layer Cake dessert as one of the desserts offered. I will review the other dessert in a future article. My sugar intake that day exceeded conventional standards. I may or may not have consumed six gourmet cookies from a bakehouse and four large, themed doughnuts that seemed ever-glazed previously in the day. Perhaps, you should look for those reviews soon on this site.

So, what did I think of the Vermillion Layer Cake in my borderline sugar coma state that day?

Good news, this dessert tasted great. The chefs described the dessert to me and I started hearing a description that matched a South American type of treat. I was sort of correct in that assessment. However, this place features a huge truck in the dining area. The restaurant name is American Kitchen Bar and Grill after all.

The chefs said what could make this type of dish more “American?”

Their decisions led then to red velvet style cake. This layer dessert consists of vanilla bean custard, red velvet cake, amaretto cherry gastrique and a crisp tuille. This cake structure shines next to a collection of excellent fruit accompanying it. The visual presentation of this dessert creates enjoyment for the eyes of the diner. The cake and fruit together overcame my inevitable sugar coma that day. Yes, the restaurant brought me out to enjoy their creations. However, I confidently can recommend this light dessert to complete a long theme park day on your next trip to Walt Disney World.

Though this dessert could become a standard menu item, it is currently featured on the special Valentine’s Day weekend dinner they will be doing.

As their promotion material says: “Love is in the air at B Resort & Spa! This Valentine’s Day loved ones can be treated to a romantic dinner of their dreams prepared by the talented culinary team at American Kitchen Bar & Grill. For this special occasion, executive chef David Roldan created something for everyone with this whole new world-inspired menu. Each meal begins with the couple’s choice of two signature cocktails or a prosecco toast with an amuse of wine ripened petite tomato bruschetta topped with goat cheese snow and aged balsamic vinegar. The first course is a chef’s selection of fresh sushi and nigiri made in a Western style. The second course is a passion fruit ceviche, made up of locally caught fish, bay shrimp, lump crab, leche de tigre, sweet potato confit, and lavish crisps. The third course is surf and turf made up of A3 Wagyu steak, a citrus mojo silk, main lobster with a bay shrimp al ajillo salad, and a mashed tri-color plantain.

As mentioned, this romantic culinary adventure concludes with the vermillion layer cake. This meal will be available February 11th and 12th for $135 per couple at American Kitchen Bar & Grill. Guests can reserve their table by calling (407)828-2828 ext. 3019.

For full disclosure, my dinner came complimentary from the restaurant.
