Sugar Swings! Serve Some: birthday devil dog cakes.....!

birthday devil dog cakes.....! 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.... 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!) 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
...the recipe for the chocolate whoopies and filling is really simple and from the marshmallow fluff site....super simple, easy and yummy so i've never even tried a different recipe

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!


  1. Super yum! My birthday was on Friday too! Great day to have a birthday =o) But I wish someone had made these for me!

  2. OK Devil Dogs were my all time favorite childhood treat. When we moved from the East coast, I couldn't find them so having a recipe for them is a treat in itself! Found you over at homework. THANK YOU!!

  3. Awww, what a great sweet treat for your sweetie!

  4. Totally Perfect!!! I'd love to have you share at my JUST opened!!!
