What a whirlwind week I have had. I missed my blog and all of you. It's been a slightly crazy week. I spent some time in Bellingham with family ,worked a little, and then flew off to Los Angeles. Why Los Angeles ? Because that is where Todd & Diane from White on Rice Couple live and work and that is where they hosted their Food Photo Shoot Out. I flew down very early in the morning, participated in the session and flew back that same night. Don't think I'm some jet setter who hops planes on a whim.
This was an incredible opportunity- I told you about it a few posts ago. I met so many fabulous bloggers and wow did I learn a lot . Diane and Todd were both so generous with sharing their studio, their experience, their knowledge and their secrets-it was awesome. I'll be doing a little follow up blog so stay tuned.
Today is my back to baking day and all about whoopie pies. I didn't have these very frequently when I was a child . But I remember when I did have them it was usually a special occasion. I mean seriously you had this cake that was all yours-you didn't have to share with anyone. Whoopie pies are your own personal little celebration cakes. It doesn't mean that you can't share-it just feels deliciously naughty to take your own little cake , head to your secret hiding place and enjoy bite after sweet bite.
And these Red Velvet Whoopie pies are meant to be savored and enjoyed. I'm a fan of the red velvet cake so I was excited that this was one of the recipes for my Baked Sunday Mornings group. The cake is moist and has a beautiful light crumb and the icing-oh my goodness. It is one of the best cream cheese frostings I have ever made. These are sweet little cakes to make for your love on Valentine's Day-don't you think ? And PS if your mind works like mine you can think of other things to do with that incredible frosting for a really special surprise for your sweetie. See, even as a grown up Whoopie pies bring out the naughty in me.
I wish all of you much love for Valentine's Day and every day.
