Welcome to the irresistible world of the whoopie pie.
Whoopie pies are two discs of sponge cake sandwiching a thick buttercream filling. Like cupcakes, they come from America, where they were originally baked by the Amish community. These melt-in-the-mouth treats are a suprise hit in Britain, where they are outselling cupcakes, donuts and macaroons.
With over 60 mouthwatering recipes this is a Whoopie-baker’s bible. It has treats for every occasion including seasonal flavours like Easter rhubarb with vanilla custard, indulgent treats like pumpkin with cream cheese, and cute party snacks like mocha-orange with espresso whipped cream. There are even alternative cake-cookie recipes such as oreo cookies and easy macaroons.
