Just when you thought cupcakes were THE only sweet treats to substitute a wedding cake, in comes the whoopie pies. These macaroon-looking, cupcake-tasting pies are hitting it big in the U.S. and it’ll just be a matter of time before they land in Hong Kong. These delicious pies take the best out of cupcakes, that is, the slightly crunchy top bit of the cake and the frosting which is replaced with soft cream cheese. You can be as creative as you want with the fillings and forget about the calorie count; one or two of them will not hurt. Instead of a wedding cake, have a whoopie tower or give them as edible favours. They’re also not difficult to make so if your guest list happens to be short, why not bake them yourself and add a sprinkle of your love (oh cheesy but a personal touch goes a long way)?
Bridelicious tried her hand at making these yesterday using one of the recipes from The Kitchn, Martha Stewart’s banana whoopie pie. They may look a bit more homey than the professional ones but still taste equally good. No lying.
