Sugar Swings! Serve Some: Superman Whoopie Pies!

Superman Whoopie Pies!


So it's whoopie pie time! Or as my kids call them "wumpie pies"!  Every year the hubster requests whoopie pies for his birthday instead of birthday cake.  Last year we did "devil dog" inspired whoopie pies and another year it was planet shaped whoopie pies.  I've also done some designed whoopie pies here, where you "decorate" the whoopie pie cakes before baking.  (I always love how this looks in the finished cake!)

For this year's birthday whoopie pies, I decided to use this technique and make some superhero inspired pies for the birthday boy.  The recipe is straight off the Marshmallow Fluff site.  It's the very first whoopie recipe I ever used and it's simple and everyone always loves them.


Put your batter in a zip lock bag, snip and end, and pipe your circle whoopie pie cakes.  Make a separate batch of the whoopie pie batter and leave out the cocoa.  I add the same amount of wheat flour to make up for not adding the cocoa.  Once batter is mixed up, separate into 2 bowls and add your food coloring.  Since I did Superman, I tinted half yellow and half red.  Put each color into a zip lock bag, snip an end and "pipe" the Superman logo.  Do the yellow background first.


Then add the "S" in the red batter.  You can use whatever design you like.  The batter is thick enough to keep the shape relatively well.


Bake at 350 for only about 7 minutes or so.  Keep an eye on them as you don't want them to brown.


Add the scrumptious marshmallow fluff icing/filling, and assemble your pies.  I also had some leftover tinted batter so made some mini vanilla whoopie pies too.


Even lettering works well with this technique, so I made a message for the birthday boy, who really is a kid at heart!


And you get some fun Superman Whoopie Pies to celebrate another year on this big blue ball.

In a world were there is such senseless violence such as the recent events in Boston this week and Newtown not so long ago, it really does give me comfort to know that my kids have a great role model in their dad.  He really is our real Superman around here.  Happy Birthday babe!  You're amazeballs.
