Cupcakes are sooo last year.....

   With the Christmas baking season in full gear ( 2 bake sales, a work party and counting) we thought a change of pace would be nice. We've stuffed ourselves on rugelach, noshed on gingerbread, tasted meringue kisses, sampled krumkake, and inhaled way to much powdered sugar (icing) while making sugar cookies. I just made chocolate eggnog cupcakes spiked with brandy and lovingly iced with an eggnog buttercream, so I wasn't feeling the cupcake vibe. What to bake, what to bake????
   Since we minks are going down south for the holidays....a luscious red velvet cake was sounding right up our alley...but, we like to keep ahead of the trends here so we made a batch of red velvet whoopie pies with Marshmallow Fluff cream in the center!

Besides, cupcakes are way overdone, even Bon Appetit had a recent poll to find a new confection champion...whoopie pie vs macarons. A tasty battle if ever there was one! Now, since it's Christmas time, let's not bicker over who invented the humble whoopie pie first, or over what is the right or wrong flavor.  How about we just agree on how delicious they are.
