Whoopie…It’s Friday!

I like to start my Friday’s off on a tasty note. Nothing gets me revved up for the weekend like a delectable new treat, and this particular one has got me excited not to mention salivating….

It’s not a glamorous treat by any means but Whoopie pies are making a come back.  Move over French Macaroons…Whoopie is in town!

Now, what’s a Whoopie pie you might ask?   A Whoopie pie is made of two circular mound-shaped pieces of chocolate cake, or sometimes vanilla, pumpkin or red velvet cake, with a sweet, creamy filling or frosting sandwiched between them. Yummy!

A fun fact, Whoopie pies are an American staple that were commonly found in farmers’ lunchboxes. When farmers would find the treats in their lunch, they would shout out “Whoopie!”  Who knew?

Want to make your own Whoopie pies? We have found some great recipes from the lovely Martha Stewart and Paul Deen. Or check out Crate and Barrel for Sarah Billingsley and Amy Treadwell’s Whoopie Pie recipe book and while you’re at it pick up your own whoopie pie baking pan.

I would say that Whoopie pies are going to be the next “must have” staple for candy buffets, showers and kids birthday parties alike. Is your wedding coming up? How about a whoopie pie station? Just a thought!
