Christmas Whoopie Cakes via the “Nest Style”
I have been drooling over several catalogs & Christmas magazines that have invaded my mailbox. One of my all time favorite store catalogs hit my mailbox the other day, and let’s just say I have been dreaming & tasting several recipes and or their ready-made foods to order. But money does not grow on trees around here, and I decided to take my cravings into my own hands. And re-create these lovely Christmas trees, via the Nest way = less expensive!!! Here’s what I did:
1 box of Dark Chocolate Cake Mix – follow directions on the back of box. Omitting 1 egg (wanted it to be a little thicker in texture.) Bake according to the directions of a cupcake pan.
Let cool slightly. Take mini cakes out of pan, and let cool completely. Using a serrated knife cut the mini cakes in half. You may have to trim some extra cake off to re-shape according to the cake form.
Mix the vanilla frosting & peppermint flavoring together in a bowl. Spread carefully onto your mini cakes slices. Sprinkle peppermint chips over your frosting, & top with coordinating mini cake form. And, “WHOOPIE!!!!” you have some delicious Whoopie Cakes to eat for yourself, or if you are feeling generous…share with your family & friends.
