Whoopie Pies- Lemon, Almond & Vanilla

So my husband has come up with this idea… I was facing a dilemma regarding shipment of cupcakes from The Baking Bar and he said, “Well, what about inside out cupcakes? Put the filling in the middle.
He is not from Lancaster County, so he wasn’t aware that he had essentially just described a whoppie pie, gob… whatever the term is that you use. However, he did have a good thought and I liked it. Especially since whoppie pies usually don’t get that outrageous with flavors. I think the most creative combination I’ve seen is oatmeal pies with vanilla filling. So, inside-out cupcakes it is! Let me tell you… my brain has been reeling with ideas of flavor combinations!
Dark Chocolate cake with strawberry meringue buttercream
Graham cake with honey cinnamon frosting
Devil’s Food with peanut butter frosting
White Chocolate with oreo frosting
I made my first combination today. Almond cakes with lemon infused vanilla frosting. Oh, they are so good! They are nice and light- so refreshing!

Lemon Frosting:
4 Tbsp. butter, softened
3 1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
3 Tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Zest and juice from half a lemon
Mix butter until smooth. Add 1 1/4 c. confectioner’s sugar, beat until combined. Add 3 Tbsp. milk and remaining confectioner’s sugar. Add 1/2 tsp vanilla and zest and juice from lemon. Beat until smooth.
This is a great summer baked good!
 Until next week,
 CW
