Hi, we’d been talking about whoopie pies and marshmallow cream, and Julie, since you asked for a picture, here you go! So—by comparison, I give you my post from last year when I first made these, and called them my homely whoopies. This is proof that we get better with practice….a $10 whoopie pan (always a sucker for specialty pans) and a piping bag doesn’t hurt either. : )
Also, I made petit fours for the first time a couple of weeks ago! They did not come out looking especially picture perfect, but they did taste good and though labor intensive, are perfect for occasions when you need to make the dessert ahead of time, since they store perfectly in the refrigerator or freezer. The little cakelets are eight layers—cake, buttercream, cake, raspberry jam or lemon curd, buttercream, cake, buttercream, and marzipan—then dipped in chocolate. I didn’t use a Rose recipe for this particular project, but any of her chiffon cakes and buttercreams would work fabulously, I’m sure!
The chocolate cloud from this weekend is on my other camera, so it will have to wait for the next post. Hope you all enjoyed your long weekend!!
