Is it a cake? A cookie? A pie? A cookie-cake? Is it spelled Whoopee or Whoopie? Do you call it a gob? Hailing from the Northeast of the United States, with deep roots in Maine and Pennsylvania Amish Country (though even that is debated, so say those from Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Virginia) the whoopie pie is arguably the best confection you may have never tried. Think cupcake, where you split the cake in half and sandwich the icing, and you’re well on your way to imagining the perfection that is a treat so good, kids shout “Whoopie!” In this class, sugar fiend Becky Selengut will teach you how to make the version she grew up with: classic chocolate whoopie pie with vanilla buttercream filling as well as the non-traditional, but equally scrumptious, lemon poppy seed whoopie pie with lemon cream cheese filling and salted white chocolate drizzle.
This is a live, hands-on cooking class held in your kitchen via Zoom. Class is meant to be as interactive as it would be at our table, with the instructor teaching you how to prepare each recipe. Each class ticket is for one kitchen, and we welcome group cooking on the same screen. To learn more about how class will go visit our FAQ page.
There are two options for gathering ingredients for this class! You can shop for your own ingredients or we are happy to pre-measure ingredients and assemble them into a 4-serving kit. And if you like to sip wine while you cook, consider adding a lovingly paired bottle with your kit!
You can preview the ingredients and equipment needed by FOLLOWING THIS LINK. One week before class we will send out a detailed shopping list, and a few days before class we will email you a detailed recipe packet and Zoom link. All classes are listed in Pacific Time.
