HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!! Well, I was busy yesterday, working on a special Valentine's Day Whoopie Pie. We wanted to do a Pink Velvet Whoopie Pie, but with all the valentines I had to fill out, we get pressed for time and decided to use a strawberry cake mix. The filling has butter, powdered sugar, marshmallow fluff and cream cheese (for tang), and just a bit of the yummy vanilla bean paste we love!
They came out looking cute and tasting sweet. I definitely think you should whip up some of these special whoopie pies for someone you love today!!
For the cake, we used Betty Crocker Supermoist Deluxe Strawberry Cakemix. We used a Wilton heart-shaped cookie mold pan to bake our little heart cakes. Filled them half-way with batter, and baked for 10 min. @ 350 degrees.
The filling was easy, too.
Whoopie Pie Filling:
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
1 1/4 cups confectioners sugar
1 cup Marshmallow Fluff
4oz. Cream Cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
Cream it all together, until fluffy. Once cakes have cooled, plate the bottom half of the pie, spread the filling thickly on top, then top that with another cake. Dust with powdered sugar, and serve to someone you love!
