Lately I’ve been experimenting with Whoopie Pie recipes and ideas. Today I’m going to show you how create these beautiful rose pattern cakes.
To make the roses, as a guide I used an image from my Cookie Inspiration Board on Pinterest.
STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE WHOOPIE PIES(makes 6 cakes)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup corn starch
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup room temperature butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk or milk( make buttermilk/sour milk adding 1tsp white vinegar to 1 cup milk, let sit for 5 minutes, stir well and use as directed in the recipe)
2tsp vanilla extract
pink and green food colorings
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 to 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2tsp vanilla extract
Strawberries, washed and sliced
Whoopie Pie Batter
Preheat oven to 350F.
Stir together flour and corn starch, add salt and baking powder. Whisk together one egg with vanilla extract.
Beat butter with sugar, until creamy, add egg mixture, gradually.
Gradually on low speed beat in flour, alternating with buttermilk.
Measure 2 tablespoons of batter for light pink and dark pink batter and 1 tbl for green.
Color with food coloring.
Fill small piping bags with colored batter.
Fill larger piping bag with remaining whoopie pie uncolored batter.
Spray whoopie pie pan with a non stick spray.
Pipe batter onto the prepared pan. Smooth the tops with back of the spoon dipped in water.
Pipe rose pattern on 6 of the cakes- refer to the video for how to do this step.
Bake at 350F. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Let cool completely before filling with frosting.
Beat cream cheese, until smooth, add powdered sugar, and then gradually add whipping cream. Beat in splash of vanilla extract. Fit the piping bag with a start tip and fill it with the frosting.
Make Whoopie Pies
Pipe a swirl on the bottom half of the cookie/cake, arrange strawberries on the top. Place the top, rose pattern cake half on top of the strawberries. Store in the fridge for up a day or so. Cakes/ Cookies can be made ahead, and frozen.
Follow the video tutorial to see how to pipe the rose pattern. It is easy and finished cake/cookies are beautiful.
