From what I hear the Food Bloggers Bakesale nationwide made a whopping $16,500!!  *round of applause for all the bakers*

I contributed to the bakesale by baking Red Velvet Whoopie Pies.  Now, I am here to share the recipe with all you lucky readers. 

This is my “go-to” recipe when I have to make something sweet for other people to eat.  It’s super easy to make and it taste fantastic.  I am still waiting for someone to tell me how disgusting these are. *Crossing my fingers that that never happens.*

So, to the “man holding the whoopie pies” (Please refer to the comments in my previous post to see who the “man holding the whoopie pies” is.), here ya go….
