Ok ok ok...I don't actually believe that...I do love me a good cupcake and I really enjoy making them and all that....but I've been making them for ages.
Anyway, long story short...we were chatting about cupcakes and their ever growing paraphernalia (we also sell a battery operated icing pen...i won't tell you what it actually looks like) and I had to put in my two cents...Um...cupcakes are so over, it is all about the whoopie pie don't you know?
What is a whoopie pie? was the response....
CUE EYE ROLL!! What is a whoopie pie? sheesh!! Anyway...it soon became clear that it is my duty to educate my colleagues! I whipped up a batch of red velvet whoopies with brown sugar cream cheese filling this afternoon to take to work tomorrow...Ladies you don't know what you have been missing!!!
Of course, working for a retailer it is clear that there is no sense in THEM jumping on the fashionable whoopie bandwagon since you don't need any special equipment to make them...just a baking sheet and a set of electric beaters (I mean I used my standmixer, but I didn't HAVE to use it...if David asks though, I DID need it...ok??) but still...electric cupcake maker??
