As a favor to our guests, Ty and I gave out whoopie pies at our wedding. To some degree, they were a mystery to our guests, who called them everything from "giant oreos" to "cream-filled hockey pucks." The whoopies carried more mystique than I could have imagined possible for a simple dessert, but I think they were a hit all around for four reasons:
- The text I got from Jenny that said all she had left to do was lick the wrapper on her whoopie pie.
- The half-eaten whoopies we found in our fridge after returning from our honeymoon. I suspect our house guests enjoyed them thoroughly!
- The fact that there were no leftover whoopies for us (not counting those half-eaten ones).
- My hair girl text me last week wondering where she could get one.
When you look at a whoopie, you think, "Dang, that's a ton of icing." But the cakes actually come to a peak in the middle, so it's not as much icing as it seems. Do not be afraid!
I found out today that whoopie pies are also now available at Buttercups Cupcakes. This is perfect if you're our and about and craving just the one whoopie. But once you fall in love with them and want to keep you freezer stocked, I recommend Becky. Order several whoopies, put them in the freezer, and pull one out each time you want to treat yourself. It's a more affordable way to feed the addiction that comes with these desirable little cakes!
