....so the biggest kid around here turned 42 (!!!!) this past friday on 4/20 (interestingly he shares his birthday with napoleon, george take [aka mr sulu], hitler, and joey lawrence) and it's also the big "smoking" day 420--who knew??....some super big birthday buddies right?
....and it seems i do way too many cupcakes around here....and most of the immediate family is pretty sick of them....
....so the request was for whoopie pies...last year he got sun and planet whoopie pies...this year the request was for traditional chocolate...which to me taste a lot like drakes devil dogs...they still make them but as a kid of the 70's and 80's those pre-made cakes from drakes, hostess, and tastykake were always around the house.....(and i've already talked about my love of hostess snoballs here and here!)
...so these are basically whoopie pies in "devil dog" shape....but the taste is pretty similar
|add batter to zip lock bag, snip end off (not too large) and pipe out the shape|
|once baked add marshmallow filling|
...and throw some sprinkles on top to make them a little more festive and you get some really easy and fun birthday devil dogs!
....and happy birthday to my best friend!....can't wait to make you whoopie pies for the rest of your birthdays to come....i can definitely say life with you is pretty darn awesome!
