What a weekend so far! I had a first this weekend and I am here to show it to you and tell you about it!
I am sure everyone has heard of Whoopie Pies, except me of course until this weekend! I think they are a sweet treat more found in the States than here in Canada. I know that before this weekend, I had never seen or heard of them, much less tasted one.
One of the newer bakeries here in town called Traceycakes, had a Whoopie Pie special. Two for the price of one of these sweet little cakes. Never have I had one before so of course we made plans to go and check it out!
These ones are Cookies and Cream, Raspberry and Chocolate. Six different flavours so hubby and I got one of each kind to share.
My favorite is the Salted Caramel. With the chocolate cake cookie base, it was a perfect combination!
They were very good, about the size of Oreo Cookies but fatter, and so incredibly sickly sweet that no way could the two of us finish them off to the last crumb. We did give it a good try though!
We washed the Whoopie Pies down with locally roasted Coffee with cream and more sugar. We were so overdosed on the sugar of the Pies and the Caffiene of the coffee that we literally bounced out of the bakery after. I honestly think I poisoned myself, or at least came darn close to it. I won't be going there anytime soon to repeat the lesson but I am glad I got the chance to try out something new and live to tell about it!
