whoopie pies, my way

Thursday, July 14, 2011

i have long since been wanting to try to bake whoopie pies, the semi-homemade way of course. i was eyeing the babycakes whoopie pie maker but couldn't get myself to buy the $ 40 gadget.

last week on one of my regular trips to michael's, i stumbled upon this whoopie pie pan by wilton. i had a 50% off coupon which easily eased my decision to go ahead and purchase it.

Will try making whoopie pies tonight

without any whoopie pie recipe to go by, i picked up a cake mix (betty crocker red velvet) and a can of whipped frosting (pilsbury whipped supreme cream cheese) from the grocery. die hard whoopie pie lovers and makers, don't shoot me!

the filling traditionally is something of a marshmallow creme fluff but i'm not so brave to make them, so i cheated and used the whipped frosting instead. it actually came out pretty good and i can't wait to make a chocolate/peanut butter version!

Whoopie pies ready to go in!

you will need the following :

one box cake mixture (follow baking directions per box decreasing the time amount to bake - mine were done by about 12 min)
baker's joy spray (the pan is already non-stick so i may try to omit this next time)
a can of your favorite WHIPPED frosting (whipped for easy spreading)

note : just like any recipe, allow the whoopie pie cakes to completely cool before adding the filling!

Yum, I can practically taste these! I've been looking at the Babycakes Whoopie Pie Maker too - they're just so cute! I love how you made these more affordably with the pan.
