Aren't those yummy looking!
My friend Jessica is the Funfetti Queen. If there is one thing that everybody knows about her, it's that she loves Funfetti cake, cupcakes...anything. Her passion for funfetti runs so deep, that a layer of her wedding cake was funfetti with a raspberry filling....It was DELICIOUS! So when I came across this recipe to make Funfetti Whoopie Pies, I knew immediately I needed to save these for a day when I could make them with Jess.
This day came last weekend when they had me over for dinner. Before we got started we had to contend with the little lady you see below.
(picture not for the squeamish)
I want to apologize to all the animal rights people out there who even have a spot in their heart for spiders, but this was no lady, she was a tramp...in fact we had reason t believe she was fully preggers. We knew we couldn't knock her down and step on her, because there was a chance that thousands of little baby tramps would survive and spread like wildfire (no pun intended, in light of all the recent wildfires). Jess' husband Devin sent our friend Brian on a mission to find some spray that would take care of her. Devin bravely took care of the situation outside, so once she was handled we proceeded with our whoopie pie making.
This is my Funfetti
Addict Accomplice and measuring Queen, Jess!

We used the boxed Funfetti Cake mix, but Risa at Baked Perfection changed the chemistry of the ingredients so that the dough comes out like a cookie dough instead of a cake mix... GENIUS!
In the oven these little beauties go! 8 minutes later.....
They come out looking perfect!
While the cookies cooled, we prepared the icing!
Tip: Most bakers are probably aware of this, but always sift your confectioners sugar, so that it doesn't make your icing clumpy.
Spread the icing between the cookies, then roll the sides through the candies and....
You have Funfetti Whoopie Pie Heaven!
