The Process
I'm not good at baking, but really interested to know how to make wonder with flour and eggs. AND, I also got help from Chef Alex, aka BF, aka chef-to-be, and the end product turns out well. Btw, I was disappointed when I realized that red velvet cake is just cocoa. The red comes from colouring, and when vinegar and buttermilk reacts with cocoa, it further enhance the red. I thought red velvet was some other flavour like "paddlepop rainbow"! Sad, but yeah... 

Anyway, my red velvet turned out cocoa colour, did not add enough colouring I guess. 

So here it is, fresh from the oven! This is how it looks

This is my first whoopie pie. Ate it and was really happy! Then I accidentally put it into the bowl with water in it. And there goes my first whoopie pie... :(

 The second Whoopie pie made was for my dad. 

The other Whoopie pies. 

I decorated them with white chocolate :) Cute?! :p

Alex and Jess... hehehehehe... 

And then, storing them up for my bro, sis and mum to try! 

So...yeap.... To me, the texture of the whoopie pie was a lil too creamy and mushy. It was definitely moist and was not too hard. But because of that, I don't know... It was just a lil weird for me, can't explain in words. But the cream cheese was awesome!!! When eaten together, it just tastes superb! But I think it's a lil too sweet. The cream cheese had 330g of icing sugar in it... For sweet tooth like myself, it was just nice, however, for my dad and sis and bro, they say it was too sweet... Lol... 

You should try this out too!That's all for now! Tata..
