Whoopie Pies made from a boxed cake mix!

GOOD heavens these babies are amazing! And what makes them extra special is they are from a cake mix! I am really enjoying taking short cuts! I took the recipe straight from Group Recipes. I will definitely be making pumpkin flavored pies and red velvet pies.

It takes 10 minutes to create this loveliness and serves approximately 16 people. My second favorite about this recipe is you can choose any flavor cake mix your heart desires : red velvet, pumpkin, strawberry, lemon etc! OOHh, the options are endless.  I am going to be making a sugardoodle cake! It would be heaven to make sugardoodle pies! YUM YUM YUM!

Remember I took this recipe straight from Group Recipes and did no adapting. Just copied it and created it and it is true to its directions. ***The only thing I did differently was I only used 1TBL spoon mound of batter for my pie rounds. They were a bit large.  The next time I create this I will try 1/2 a table spoon and see if that will lend to the perfect size finger food that I am looking for!***
This was 1TBLsp. prior to baking. I would have liked my pies to be this diameter as a finished product.
