This Valentines I’m combining my two loves,
red velvet cake and whoopie pies.
My mom made my sisters and I chocolate whoopie pies for special treats growing up,
and red velvet cake was always MY birthday cake.
This combination is LOVE at first bite!
Though I have my mom’s classic red velvet recipe I could make from scratch,
I chose to grab a box of Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Red Velvet Cake mix right from my newly organized pantry. Note: This frosting recipe is the oldest known recipe that was originally paired with Red Velvet Cake. I prefer it any day over cream cheese frosting. It is very subtle in sweetness, light, and addictive!

Red Velvet Whoopie Pie- frosting filling
(this frosting is one of the oldest, classic frostings for red velvet cake. Feel free to use your favorite cream cheese frosting if desired)
Time to fill your whoopie!
Spoon your frosting into a freezer bag with a taped corner and then snip off 1/2 inch.
Don’t be stingy! Pile it high!
Add your top layer and you’ve got yourself a little whoopie pie!
But these red velvet whoopie pies need a little bling!
So lay out your sprinkles, jimmies, and candies to dress your whoopies up.
Don’t they look just scrumptious!
Store your red velvet whoopie pies in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap.
Fall in love with MY TWO LOVES, you won’t be sorry!
I’d like to give a special shout out “THANK YOU” to my sweet friend Debbie who suggested I combine my two loves!
