You could do a piped monogram on them with a simple fondant daisy for a wedding. I think it would be pretty. Maybe chocolate cake with white piping and the cream inside colored to match the wedding color, blue or pink perhaps? I am definetly going to have to play with this idea icon_rolleyes.gif , sounds fun. Thank you for bringing this up. I would have never of thought of making whoopie pies. thumbs_up.gif

No, they're not big, they're actually the size of a hamburger. You can make them larger, but I think the whole idea was to make a cake that can be eaten with one hand.

The ones I make are about 3 inches wide.

I make mine much smaller than the ones on wicked whoopie pies! Since I normally jsut do them for family I make them about 2.5 inches...

once i made them for a small bridal open house. for some reason i burned every pan. But only the edges were too done. so i took a cookie cutter heart and cut them out then filled. it worked perfectly because they happend to be red velvet and it was just a day or so after valentine's day.

I have a question about making a large quanity of these? How would you bake them??

Could or would you just bake a sheet cake an cut them out ? If you had to bake each one indiviualy, that would take forever an a day!!

I personally like the sound of them more the eating a slice.. icon_redface.gif

I am not sure you would get the domed look form a sheet of cake. It does end up looking like those cakesters...kind of a muffin top on each side. Plus the ends of the cut cake would not look right i think

Being from Maine, whoopie pies are HUGE here and always have been.
I make vegan whoopie pies (they are VERY sticky and gooey, just how the people want them...) Personally, I think they are messy.

That said, I am SICK of making them... I had to make some tonight for a store... they are just so borring and time consuming...
Maybe I'm just after the photo "trophy" because I would rather make a decorated cake. With a cake there is a "beginning, middle and end", but Whoopie pies just go on, and on.... icon_sad.gif

How the world still dearly loves two cakes with frosting SMASHED between them... icon_rolleyes.gif

You just scoop them like cookies... you can bake 6 cake pieces at a time (more or less depending on the size). They are a pain. I hate making them... almost as much as I hate mini cupcakes... almost. icon_lol.gif

I was at the farmer's market today, and stopped by the Amish bakery in there. Of course, there was the big row of whoopies. And of course, all this talk about them convinced me to buy one.

Many of you know that I am not a fan of PS icing, but the icing they used for the filling was out of this world! I'm going back next week to ask if I can have the recipe. And of course, to buy another of their whoopie pies. icon_lol.gif

Do you have a guess about the icing?
post #28 of 425
All I know is that it was smoother than a basic PS icing, which I hate the feel of on my teeth. It was very light, not greasy at all. Not marshmallow-y either.

I know it's not a Mary Kay (mock whipped cream) or a meringue BC, because those are the ones I use regularly. And the edge of the icing which was sticking out the side had a crust on it, but not as hard as a regular crusting BC.

I would really like to have this because a person I met recently asked me about doing a sculpted cake for her, but she's allergic to dairy. I think this would work perfectly.

I'll let you know if I find out anything.
