      Oh yes, these are gourmet Whoopies indeed! I used a mix of half shortening and half butter for the cake part, and same with the filling. The cakes baked up perfectly at 10 minutes and were a breeze to remove from the parchment. They are very soft, not overly sweet or chocolatey. The filling is a simple buttercream frosting (and I used heavy cream instead of milk - oh why not?!) and is delicious with the cakes. I used less confectioners' sugar in the filling. Bakery whoopie pies always have that predominant (and off putting) shortening-taste/mouth feel to me which these don't at all. They may not be authentic (no marshmallow creme needed) but they're just divine!
