Whoopie pies

Helsinki, 8 degrees

When you die, if you get a choice between going to regular heaven or pie heaven, choose pie heaven. It might be a trick, but if it's not, mmmmmmmm, boy.

Yesterday we finally had the chance to purchase the last pieces of furniture for our new home! We bought some nightstands for our bedroom, lamps and a cupboard for our kitchen! I'll show you how they look in future posts, as soon as we get them on their places.

I wanted to share with you the whoopie pies (alternatively called a black moon, gob, black-and-white, bob, or "BFO" for Big Fat Oreo) that I made on Sunday! I received a magazine focused on the planning stage of this season's Christmas parties that said that whoopie pies are this Christmas' treat - a new trend pastry/confectionery that has passed the macaron in its coolness, so I had to try it! It is made of two round mound-shaped pieces of chocolate cake with cinnamon, with a sweet, creamy filling or frosting sandwiched between them.  My version had coconut flakes on the coffee cream filling! Yummy!


Have you tried these delicious whoopie pies?

What's your opinion?

  1. Ohhh so nice pics!


  2. Wow, those look so good! Especially the pink ones with sprinkles. I think I have tried a whoppie pie before, but a long time ago. They look really good!

  3. haha pie heaven sounds good to me! especially if it is filled with the whoopie pies!


  4. gosh, I haven't but those photos are driving me crazy and I would try pretty much everything from those pictures. I feel so hungry now. and I think I'll do a little research on those pies and maybe give them a try before Christmas. I wonder what their Estonian name is :P

    1. Haha I'm happy you like them! They were super easy to make, so give them a try! They don't have a Finnish or Swedish name either, they're just whoopie pies like whoopie doo!


  5. I haven't heard of these pies before, but gosh, they do look so yummy! Are they difficult to make? Loved the pink one.
