This week's project for the Heavenly Cake Bakers is Two Fat Cats Whoopie Pies. I have been very busy lately and unable to participate in the HCB's but now I'm back and excited to take part.
I love whoopie pies, have made them for years, and these are very good. The cake/cookie holds it shape after baking and is moist and tender. I made mine mini using a truffle scoop and they turned out to be a two bite little bit of heaven. The filling is dreamy. I doubled everything because I wanted to pass them out to friends and clients. This recipe is definitely a keeper, try making these, they are easy, fun and fast. To guild the lilly these could be made with different ingredients added to the buttercream such as raspberry puree, caramel sauce, ganache, mint etc.

I made this cake for a little 13 year old ballerina. Her mom used to do some cake decorating and could really understand and appreciate the time it takes to make a cake like this.
I sculpted the slippers by hand out of fondant. It is really hard to get two sculpted items to look the same. I started the second slipper about 5 times before I could get it to look the same as the first one.
The cake inside was chocolate with vanilla buttercream.
The little girls favorite color was Tiffany blue so I incorporated a little of it in the flowers. I think it turned out very sweet in appearance.

The super sized cupcake is banana with vanilla buttercream. The little cupcakes are chocolate with the same buttercream and banana. This was for a very feminine little gal that loves cupcakes!! The little cupcakes were frosted first and then covered with fondant. I love the smooth finished look of these.

Wow!! This cake was a lot of work but I love the outcome. The 6" top tier was white cake with cream cheese buttercream, the 8" middle tier was carrot cake with cream cheese buttercream, and the 10" bottom tier was marble cake with cream cheese buttercream. The client loves my cream cheese buttercream so we designed the cake flavors around the buttercream.
