Welcome to Be Sweet: Decorated Whoopie Pies and enter Whooptopia, a place where smiling frogs sit upon lily pads, sweet spiders perch in their webs, and UFOs land neatly in your kitchen. Dessert just got a makeover! Join the Be Sweet baking team of Elisabeth Antoine and Elizabeth Herring and create scrumptiously fun decorated whoopie pies that will delight everyone. Organized in two sections, Decorated Whoopie Pies includes more than 200 step-by-step full-colour photographs. Part One includes instructions and full-colour photographs on baking whoopie pies (mould or free-form); how to fill and assemble the pies; and how to make simple decorations (stencilling, dusting, and dipping). Part Two includes recipes for 14 decorated whoopie pies using fondant, 14 whoopie batter recipes, 14 filling recipes, and 14 different decorative toppings; each recipe includes 10 step-by-step full-colour photographs on how to decorate your pie. "You can do it!" is the author's rallying cry and they will show you how.
