Move Over, Cupcakes
Whoopie pie mania has accelerated over the past few years, showing up in waves across the country and are now outselling cupcakes as the new take on wedding cakes. Whoopie pies aren't pies at all; they’re more like a cake sandwich with dense sponge cake pieces sandwiched together with a buttercream filling (pictured here). Whoopie pies originated in Pennsylvania Amish country: cooks turned leftover cake batter into "cookies" for their husbands’ lunch boxes and when they found their treat would yell “whoopee!"
