I picked up the latest Sainsbury's magazine this week and if ever there was an irresistible sight, here it was on the front cover.

And then with the title...'Let's make Whoopie!', I just had to break with our birthday Malteser Cake tradition and make a batch for my big boy's birthday today.

The question was, which flavour? Personally I would have gone with the Lemon Cream. Or the Passion Fruit was mighty tempting.

But I wasn't brave enough to break from tradition altogether, so chocolate it was. They were exceedingly pleasingly received, so much so that noone muttered the M word. Think I may even get away with a lemon variety next time.

Fancy making a little whoopie yourself?

Hi Karen, those cakes look good! I'm organising a fresh modern quilt bee and wondered if you were interested. If you think you might be, pop over to http://lilysquilts.blogspot.com/ and see what you think. Although it's international, it so happens that there are a few UK quilters in it which kind of makes it fun because we are few and far between in this country. Lynne

Hi Karen, they look great, they bring Weebles (remember those - Weebles wobble but they don't fall down) for some reason...

Hi Karen, they look way scrummy! I may just have to pop to Sainsbury's over the weekend! I'm doing the fresh modern quilt bee that Lynne's organising, thought it was about time I dipped my toes into quilting instead of just pondering on it!! Justine xx

It is being said that Whoopie Pies are 'the new cupcakes' so you're definitely in the know! They look great, must try some at the week-end.xx
