Birthday Cake Whoopie Pies mean you can have all the flavor of a birthday cake in just a few bites. And there’s no need to wait for a birthday to enjoy them. That’s because these cake-like sandwich cookies are a snap to make. They are simple and fun. With Betty Crocker® Super Moist™ Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix, you practically have a party in a box!
A friend of mine told me how to make these treats in a simple way, and I love the method. It starts by preparing the cake mix and then rolling the dough into balls that get baked like cookies. I find that if you first give your hands a good spray of cooking oil, the dough is easier to roll. The whoopie pies can be made in many different flavors. This variation is one I came up with. I am sure you will come up with your own great creations!
These bake up into light cookie cakes, which I fill with my butter and cream cheese frosting. After rolling them in some rainbow sprinkles, they are ready to enjoy. I love the fact that I can make these whenever I’m in the mood for cake but don’t want the hassle of having a big cake that needs to be sliced and served. Plus, these goodies can be packed in a lunch or picked up as an on-the-go snack with no mess or fuss.
They are also great as an added dessert at a party. How many times does the birthday boy or girl want chocolate cake but there’s a guest who can’t eat chocolate? Well, if you make a chocolate birthday cake, you can offer these little whoopie pies as another option. You could also use Betty Crocker® Gluten-Free cake mix as an option for your guests.
Party or not, you can make these hand-held treats any time you like…and you don’t have to turn a year older to do it!
