Anyway, a few weeks ago, I bought The Big Book of Cupcakes and I've decided that I'm going to make all of them. I'm not going to try to do in all in a year or anything like that. But I think it will teach me a lot about baking and, hopefully, make me better. I'm going to call it The Big Book of Cupcakes Challenge! Or just BBCC.
So. Yesterday I made Whoopie Pie cupcakes, which are the first cupcakes in the book. I probably won't go in order, (because the next cupcakes in the book are dried cherry and pistachio cupcakes and that doesn't sound appetizing to me at all) but I just really wanted to make these.
I like this book because it tells you how to make all the cupcakes from scratch and how to make them from a box mix. Since my mom likes to buy four cakes mixes at a time when they're on sale, this helps me out a lot. :) It also tells you how many calories are in each cupcake! There are 210 calories in one Whoopie Pie (which is a lot more than I thought there'd be, but that's okay).
These cupcakes are so easy to make!
Bake regular chocolate cupcakes and cut them in half
Filling: mix a cup of whipped white frosting (from the store) and 3/4 cup of marshmallow creme.
I doubled it to make sure I had enough, but I had some left over.
For football season, I'm definitely going to make these with red velvet cake instead.
