Whoopie Pie

Hi again,

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.

Whoopie Pie Filling (Wilton)

6 tbsp Butter, softened
1 1/2 cups Confectioners' sugar, sifted
1/8 tsp Salt
1 jar Marshmallow creme (about 7 oz)
1 tsp Pure Vanilla extract
Pink food coloring (optional)


1) In a large bowl, beat butter with electric mixer until creamy.

2) Add sugar and salt to the butter; mix well. Add marshmallow creme and vanilla extract; blend well. If desired, add food coloring. 

3) Use immediately to fill whoopie pies or refrigerate covered up to 1 week. Bring back to room temperature and lightly beat before using.

* Makes about 2 1/2 cups of filling, enough to fill 12 whoopie pies.
