Whoopie Pies

Today we made our first batch of whoopie pies. As we have never made them before, we were unsure as to how they would turn out, but thankfully, the end result was great and tasted even better! 
We first made the batter (which turned out to be much stiffer than we had anticipated) and followed the recipe to the letter. While the batter was cooling in the fridge, we made the marshmallow fluff, which, thanks to our good friend's recipe, was incredibly easy to make. After the baked whoopie pies cooled and the marshmallow cream filling was made, this was the end result:

Cake Pops

Today, we successfully made a batch of chocolate coated cake pops! We have been struggling to get the coating right and decided it was best if we left the cake pops in the fridge right up until we were going to coat them. We melted the white chocolate (we like to use Cadbury's "Dream" white chocolate) in the microwave, coloured it with food colouring and left it to cool slightly. Once the chocolate had cooled, we used a spoon to coat the cold cake pops and then placed the finished cake pops on a very cold plate and put them back in the fridge. This is the finished result:
Oh, and naturally we had to have a taste testing, and I am happy to report that they tasted awesome :-)
