My co-worker's birthday is on Saturday, and since we all have different schedules on Friday I decided to bake for her and bring it in today. I always do cupcakes but decided to take a chance and do something different, so I decided to go for Whoopie Pies! For those of you poor sheltered souls that don't know what a whoopie pie is basically kind of a cake sandwich, typically chocolate cake (but they have been made out every kind of cake possible) sandwiched around a fluffy white cream filling. They came out AMAZING! The cake was soft and spongey and the filling was light and fluffy.
Check them out!
The traditional whoopie pie!
The birthday girl likes raspberry so I made a few with some raspberry jam on the cake.
Posing for a picture!
All lined up and ready to go!
I'm really glad I took the chance and decided to make these instead of the same old cupcakes. The birthday girl seemed to be happy as well, she said that she LOVES whoopie pies and dug right into a raspberry one for breakfast! She loved it, so this venture was a success!
Hope you all had a great day and yay for Friday tomorrow!
*Edited to add - I just read that Starbucks' pumpkin spice latte, even when made with soy milk and no whip is NOT vegan?! WTF IS THAT?! That just totally ruined my night.
