Whoopie Pie Wednesday: Red Velvet

a giant Red Velvet this time, b/c well...why not I ask you? My friend Icca was in town and it happened to be the week of her birthday. I spent a little time trying to nonchalantly come up with what her favorite cake might be without it be obvious I had planned to make one for her. She happened to mention how she had recently gotten a red velvet and it had looked delicious, unfortunately as we know, looks can be deceiving. I set about to rectify this, as red velvet anything makes my heart pitter patter. When deciding how to best make her treat, I surmised, after listening for a while, that whoopie pie would be better suited for her than an actual cake. She likes icing, but not "heaps" of it. So without further ado...


Have y'all ever heard of Ross? I assume most of you have, because most of you are "my people" Anywyas, in one of my many dalliances through Ross I stumbled upon this giant whoopie pie pan and seeing as how it was clearanced to $2.99, obviously I had to have it and have it I did. Basically it amounts to being a 2 "layer cake" pans in one, it looks like this



Well, ok...that's what it looks like after you fill it with batter, but you get the point. Let's not care about small details or anything.

Ingredients
1 box red velvet cake
how many ever eggs and oil the cake requires
filling
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 oz bourbon
1 pkg cheesecake pudding mix

bake the cake according to directions(I followed for two 9x9 pans) let cool.
cream together cream cheese, 1/2 packet of dry pudding mix and bourbon till fluffy(appx 1-2 min) add remaining pudding packet and whipping cream, start on low and slowly turn to high, beating until very stiff peaks begin to form. Frost the cooled bottom layer. Top carefully with other cake layer and place in fridge for a minimum of an hour for filling to set. 

You should probably serve this with milk, apparently people like that or something. I wouldn't know...I'm not one of those people! 

My Icca enjoyed her cake so very much she had two servings and just said "ummm, this is good, like really good. yum" It was almost like she was surprised it was so good. Haha

We miss and love you already!!!!
