Things I do, make or like


Whooooppieeeeeee !

So I posted a photo of some Macaroons I made for my 20th and poor old Kim (http://www.magpieeyesx.blogspot.com/) had never found them England ! A travesty in my eyes ! 
Anyway she the put me on to cake called a Whoopie Pie. After a bit of research I discovered that Whoopie Pies are a cakey sandwhich treat... "Amish women would bake these (known as hucklebucks at the time) and put them in farmers' lunchboxes. When farmers would find these treats in their lunch, they would shout "Whoopie!"" I loved this story so I hunted down a recipe and baked some up. I am, as I type taking my first bite... and my god they are delicious ! Sweet and sickly but so more-ish. I  recommend you get some butter milk and make these right away (Recipe; http://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/recipes/451718/Chocolate-whoopie-pie)

Perfect comfort food. 

The sprinkles were supposed to be a 'K' but it got a bit deformed :S

They are like mini cakes, and macaroons are more like meringues. They were hard work to make cos the mix is quite doughy and I had to do it by hand ! I would recommend them they are tasty :)xo
