Red Velvet Whoopie Cakes

Whoopie pies/cakes are a dessert I have enjoyed since I was a child. A soft cake texture mixed with cream in the middle. It’s similar to an Oreo, but the outside is made out of cake and is bigger than an Oreo. It’s one of the best desserts out there for a cake lover. I remember enjoying them while getting cake stuck to my fingers and having to lick it off my hands, which was the best part. I always enjoyed how soft it was and how you got some filling in each bite.
The whoopie pie is a Pennsylvania …

Ever since I started baking, I have used applesauce in pretty much everything I’ve made. The cool thing about it is that no one has noticed the difference.
