It's love, in the form of a whoopi pie!

Every year growing up, my mother would make us a special birthday cake... the whoopi pie cake. MMMMM. Seriously, it's just a big sugary ball of coco and marshmallow w/ a little butter... but it's so freeking good!

Well, I made one for a friends birthday last week... and I will be making one for another friend when he and his wife are in town visiting in the next few weeks. They aren't super complicated... but they are so damn good!

So, because I adore you, my blog followers, oh so much... I'll share the recipe with you!!! Just make sure you use good ingredients! I use a really really good Bourbon Vanilla... it adds such a nice flavor to it all.
