Whoopie pies is one of the next dessert faves at parties. They are basically two small round cakes sandwiched together with filling or frosting. I recently purchased a Wilton Whoopie Pie pan at Bed Bath and Beyond since it was on sale, because I tried making them exactly how a baker made them on youtube just using a piping bag and a cookie pan, unfortunately the cake did not formed properly. I made mine with devil's chocolate cake and buttercream frosting. To give it more texture and taste to the whoopie pies I made, I added some sprinkles in the frosting. Try it out for a party, they will definitely be a good hit at the dessert table.
