Today is Mr Cakes’ birthday! Happy Birthday dear, and here! Have a Whoopie. These are the superbly tasty Salted Caramel offerings from Claire Ptaks Whoopie Pie book, which I got up early this morning to bake in time for Mr Cakes’ rousing, thank you very much!

Have you heard of Whoopie pies? You must have done! They have an entry on Wikipedia, but of course you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to check it out. Basically, they’re like cupcakes but flat like biscuits with the topping in the middle (middling, perhaps?) One tip for you if you do plan on making some – get yourself a cookie scoop. I have this tablespoon sized on from Amazon. It’s just the same as an ice cream scoop, only smaller. The tablespoon one creates medium sized whoopies and it means you get a more uniform shape and size.

If you want the creme de la creme of Whoopies get yourself over to Violet in east London. Perfect to treat yourself with after you’ve had a swim in the Lido, just round the corner. Now, why didn’t I think of that before getting up at the crack of dawn? Ho-hum.
