Whoopie pies the new cupcake - Page 7

post #91 of 425
Mcdonald, whenever I buy or make a whoopie pie here in Maine, they are ALWAYS individually wrapped in plastic wrap....for many reasons. Often the cake part is VERY moist and gooey, and if it isn't wrapped it will stick to whatever surface it touches. Also it keeps the filling contained. And who knows? I guess it keeps the whole blessed thing together too, LOL! icon_biggrin.gif

Well, Lil, don't talk about it - get busy, let us know when they're done. You will need a focus group to test the product. Those of us who are near will stop by, while the rest of us will PM our addresses so you can send out samples. icon_lol.gifthumbs_up.gif

I know that this question is asked over and over again with icing, but I have always steered clear of icing with milk in it...I have made the Wicked Whoopie Recipe posted earlier in the thread, but wondered if they are shelf stable due to the milk in the filling.

Also, for those of you who sell them, what is their shelf life?

Southerncake, I make cooked milk icings all the time. The cooking, solids, sugar, etc., really help to stabilize the milk. I've left mine on the counter for several days with no ill effects except maybe just a lost of flavor after a number of days. I wouldn't leave it for months, but no one would leave anything for months. Wrapped up, these whoopie pies have a good shelf life--but they never make it that long anyways because they're always snatched up and eaten! icon_smile.gif

icon_surprised.gif Gah! No! I don't even do cupcakes, and NOT because I don't think they are pretty, I don't have the patience, the room, or the oven capacity to get them done in a timely manner.

Geeeeez....and since when has an elegant affair such as a wedding turned into a venue for eating snack pies?? What happened to a pretty plate and a shiny teeny little fork? No offense, but seriously....I know there are all kinds of weddings but that makes me shake my head.

Thank you mellee. The Wicked Whoopie filling recipe doesn't get cooked though, just mixed together, but there's only 4 TBS milk in the whole recipe, so I think it is okay...I hope icon_smile.gif

Paula Deene's recipe is called Chocolate Gobs (or something like that). They were okay, but the filling was a little too greasy and slick for me.

Yeah, don't sweat it AT ALL southerncake. There's so darn much sugar in there, even the GERMS die. OK, they die and go to heaven, but they still die! tee hee icon_biggrin.gif

I make uncooked buttercreams with milk in them all the time and leave them for a LONG time on the counter. No one has croaked yet, but I'm working on it. Bwahahaha! Honestly though, go for it and don't worry about it!

I used a recipe off allrecipes.com and I used the cooked flour/milk icing that was suggested on epicurious.. i ate one of the tops because they were odd numbered LOL.. I havent eaten a complete one yet.. my 6 yo says they are dlish!

thanks! i couldn't help myself so I ate one.. that was fluffy goodness on the inside.. the outside was good too,although i would imagine that it should taste richer..I know the ones from epicurious would be more chocolaty becasue of the buttermilk (and the dutch process cocoa). hmmmmm
