WHOOPIE PIE WORKSHOP
 

 

Chef Barbara

Presents

WHOOPIE PIECLASSIC WORKSHOP

Pennsylvania, Maine, Massachusetts, Virginia and New Hampshire all claim to be the birthplace of the whoopie pie. The Pennsylvania Dutch Convention & Visitors Bureau notes that the whoopie pie recipe comes from the area's Amish and Pennsylvania German culture. 

Labadie's Bakery in Lewiston, Maine has been making the confection since 1925. The now-defunct Berwick Cake Company of Roxbury, Massachusetts was selling "Whoopee Pies" as early as the 1920s, but officially branded the Whoopee Pie in 1928 to great success.

Various claims suggest that the whoopie pie originated in Massachusetts and spread both north and south, or that German immigrants in Pennsylvania brought the predecessor of the whoopie pie to communities throughout the northeast.

Regardless of the actual origin, whoopie pies have been a staple of American desserts and treats for nearly 100 years.  Though they fell out of vogue for many years, they are back and in a big way. 

Chef Barb with work with you to recreate classic whoopie pies AND create some of the newest flavors of this amazing little cake, pie, cookie, whatever!
