Whoopie! Harrod's is selling Whoopie Pies. Move over cupcakes, there's a new pastry on the scene in London.
Having become fairly popular in the US recently, these mound shaped cakes filled with a creamy frosting and sandwiched together are quite tasty. Picture an Oreo on steroids. Originally from the New England area of the US, they seem to be the newest import to several British bakeries. Food historians say that Amish wives would pack these desserts in their farmers' lunch boxes, and when they opened their boxes, of course they would say, "Whoopie!"
Flavors currently available at Harrod's are cherry, red velvet, classic chocolate and butterscotch toffee. Which one has your name on it?
Just as sweet is the blog award that I received a few days ago from my blogging friend, Natasha, in Australia. Treat yourself to a visit to her blog, 5 Minutes Just for Me.
