Treat Your Bridal Party..... Whoopie Pies

Happy Monday Budget Brides!!!

I have seen Whoopie Pies in all of the candy bars lately. I have never tasted them but they look oh so delicious. So I thought that I would share a recipe with you that I found on My Baking Addicition. As many of you may know that getting together your bridesmaids for meetings or wedding duties can be hard and expensive if your feeding them in payment for their time. I think desserts are many times a low cost way of giving your party a treat without breaking your wallet.

My Baking Addicition used the recipe below for Valentine's Day but they can be used for any occasion. So whip up a batch for your bridal party and send us some pics. You may see yourself on the web. LMBO

Red Velvet Whoopie Pie Recipe

1 Cup Cake Flour
1/3 Cup of Unsweeten Cocoa (not Dutch process)
1/2 Tablespoon of Salt
2/3 Cup of Canola Oil
3/4 Cups of Granulated Sugar
1 Large Egg
2 Tablespoons of Red Food Coloring
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
1/2 Cup of Buttermilk
1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

2. Whisk cake flour, cocoa and salt in a bowl.

3. Place oil and sugar in a bowl of an electric mixer and beat at medium speed until well blended. With machine on low, very slowly add red food coloring. (Proceed with care it may splash) Add vanilla. Add flour mixture aternately with buttermilk in two batches. Scrape down bowl and beat just long enough to combine.

5. Place 1 tablespoon of batter per foil heart pan.

6. Place in oven and bake until a cake tester comes out clean, 10-14 minutes. Let cake cool in pans for 10 minutes. Then remove from pans and cool completely before frosting.

7. Slice the cakes in half and frost the inside with cream cheese frosting then sandwich the cakes together. (You can decorate the edges of the cream cheese with sprinkles)
