♡ Homemade Funfetti Whoopie Pies ♡

Hello again! Well as you can see, I FINALLY have gotten the time to bake more! Yesterday, I saw that Cookies and Cups had made Funfetti whoopie Pies.  I was amazed and wanted to try them out but there was one big problem: they were made from a “box cake.” So I searched different recipes and finally found the perfect one! I adapted this recipe from The Sweet Life, but I did change a few things!   These whoopie pies aren’t just adorable, but they are packed with deliciousness…(I didn’t have multi-colored sprinkles so I had to borrow my friends heart sprinkles :D) The cookies themselves are really fluffy and moist (before you refrigerate them, then they go a little flat but they still keep their flavor).

So, I forgot to tell you that last week I tried something delicious and I just HAVE to make it! 

Are you ready to know? Are you sure? Well it was…………

FRENCH MACARONS!

Wow they were the most delicious pastry that I have ever tasted. I love the whole combination of the crunch of the crust and the smooth, moist texture of the inside of the Macaron itself. I loved the Chocolate flavor so I’ll be looking at recipes all week! I also tried a sample of a German Chocolate Cake. It is my favorite cake by far and that was only from a little sample! So of course, I’ll be looking at recipes for a German chocolate cake too! Well, I can’t keep you off track as to what you really wanted to have so here is the recipe for Homemade Funfetti Cookies:
Aren’t they just too cute?
