However, there is always time to bake. It's a hell of a lot cheaper than therapy. Lately, I've been experimenting with Whoopie Pies. Thanks to my lovely friend Helen, who gave me The Whoopie Pie Book by Claire Ptak recipe book for my birthday, I now have a whole load of other baked goods try out! The recipes in the book all look delicious, and I first tried making the meringue whoopies (REAL easy) and also lemon whoopies (REAL yum). They are extremely easy to make, but I would recommend piping the mixture out rather than using an ice cream scoop like the book suggests. Here are some pics of the chocolate chip whoopies I made, with chocolate buttercream filling:
The best things about whoopies? You can send them in the post to your friends! Just make sure that they're in a sealed bag/container and that it's well wrapped with bubble wrap! Perfect for any occasion!
