Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

A couple of people inspired me to make these whoopie pies. I thought my first whoopie pie adventure would be pumpkin pies with maple cream cheese frosting. Mmmm. But then I saw my sister Kristina post her pictures and my friend Ann mentioned she was making them too... I just knew that I wanted to try something new rather than just the regular (but very good) red velvet cake cupcakes.

The whoopie pies are for a family gathering tomorrow. My Dad is visiting from San Diego, for his annual ice fishing trip.

The cakes are very moist and much like regular velvet cake. They passed a very important test... with the four year old. I gave him just once cookie with a dollop of cream cheese frosting on top. He said it was "yummy".

Dishes are the most hated part of baking/cooking. I also made Rocky Road ice cream and that added quite a few more dishes to wash. Ugh.

I'll post the Rocky Road ice cream tomorrow. It's hardening in the freezer overnight. It's my Dad's favorite ice cream so I hope he likes it.

Mmm, red velvet cake in a convenient handheld form. This looks really good. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your whoopie pies up.
