Bakery Style Whoopie Pie Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by wannabecook

I found this recipe on a website for parents. The original was for the actual Whoopie pies, but I am too lazy for all of that. I altered a little and made a cake out of it. It is awesome and so worth the work. Note: use real butter, makes it much better.

These were yummy and went fast at school. I cut back on 1/2 cup water so that I could make little whoopie pies. I added chocolate vodka to the cream filling instead of the extract. I added a teaspoon or so of expresso power to the cake batter too. These were for grow-ups and they loved them!
