Whoopie pies the new cupcake

post #1 of 425
Thread Starter 
I have been seeing them pop up everywhere! Has anyone else noticed? Will you be jumping aboard to keep up with this newest trend?

Dear me, I must have been living under a rock all these years because I don't know what a whoopie pie is. I've heard of them but I don't know what they are.

I've been baking whoopie pies for years. In fact, they were the feature treat at the last sweet table I did, a couple of months ago.

We make several "creme filled" cookies and they always sell out withing hours of coming out of the kitchen.

We make oatmeal cream pies, Banana nut pudgy pies, red velvet, pumpkin, and chocolate whoopie pies. We sell them for $3.00 each.

Howdy! I live in northern New England, as far north in New England as you can get LOL, where whoopie pies originated. Have been making them for years and years! Everyone LOVES them. Easier than cupcakes too. Bigger. Yummier. icon_biggrin.gif But not as pretty.

So is it cake sandwiched with cream? or a cookie sandwiched with cream? Is it a buttercream filling? or a marshmallow cream?

I looked it up...but can't tell.

I won't be... LOL. I love whoopie pies (if I make them) but I don't want to make them en masse.

Whoopie Pies are one of my biggest sellers for the Walk-In traffic. I make chocolate w/ buttercream or peanut buttercream filling and pumpkin with spice filling. I've done some vanilla w/ chocolate filling too but that's just too many for me to do by myself!

It's like a thickened cake batter that you scoop out onto a lined pan and bake. Flip it over and add filling to the flat side, throw another one on top to form a sandwich and there's your whoopie pie! People love them...

Interesting...never heard of them by that name. However....my friends always make fun of me when i have a cupcake because i tear the bottoms off of my , put it on top...and make a sandwich. I just didnt know there was an actual name for this.

I will add whoopie pies to my "future revenue stream" file.

Thanks!

My mom made these when I was little, and her mom for her. They've been around for a long time but they seem to be picking up the attention of people the last few years. I LOVE THEM!!!
I don't make them that much because I'll eat them all.

Oh I LOVE these! The best ones on Earth are found in Maine - I eat my weight in them every summer while on vacation! Even my DH who doesn't have much of a sweet tooth loves the traditional choc cakes with the vanilla frosting. If making your own, you have to use marshmallow fluff - not the marshmallow creme. They are tasty treats indeed!

I wouldn't do them for a wedding, but I do have a killer recipe from a magazine that is so good I thought of trying to convert it to an actual cake recipe, then it calls for I think a 7-minute frosting for filling, but I put whatever icing I have around extra, inside. The kids LOVE them.

Not doing cakes any more, moved on...

My DH is from PA and whoopie pies are very popular there. I use regular icing though because the dutch version has uncooked egg whites in it, and I try not to do that.

They also freeze well if you are jsut making them at home. I make them at the beginning of the summer and wrap indivdiually then put in a freezer bag. We take them out for picnics and camping, etc. And easy summer treat with no heat involved!

My family also prefers the ones with out the marshmellow center...just a regular icing. i guess that ends up more like and inside out cupcake in the end.
