Whoopie Pie Filling is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I've tried twice to use this recipe for whoopie pie filling. It's slimy, a mess to make, and when I put it between the two pies, they promptly slid apart into yet another cakey, sticky mess. I wanted to make these pies for a fund raising cake auction. I ended up giving them to the kids because they were just too messy looking. The filling was tasty - a tad too sweet for me but tasty. The filling either wasn't thick enough or my cakes were too big (although I did use the whoopie pie cake recipe as well - again, tasty but overall didn't work). That's why a 2 star and not more. Just too frustrating to keep the pies together. I've made many 5+ tiered wedding cakes that had me less frustrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found this filling very sweet. It was okay though because the cake part of it was actually not that sweet so it was a nice balance between the two. I also found it to not be slimy at all. I had no problem spreading it on the pies and they held together quite nicely. I'm not sure why the other reviewer had a problem. I followed the recipe exactly but my butter was not 100% softened so maybe that's why it held together better. It was a hut at our house and I'll definitely use this filling again in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I Live in the southeastern Pennsylvania area where the Amish whoopie pies are the gold standard. This filling is not the Pennsylvania Dutch whoopie pie. Amish whoppie pies have an airy, whipped and not sticky filling more along the lines of a whipped buttercream with a medium consistency. If this is the type of filling you are accustomed to, then this recipe will disappoint. The good, the filling is tasty and very easy to make.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Had to change the recipe :( The first time i tried this recipe I found it very similar to store bought frosting and i find those very sweet . So i change it to create a better taste, to this recipe i added cream cheese, you can add as much as you like i used a whole bar , and i reduced the amount of sugar to my taste. I ended up with an amazing filling and to this day I always get asked to bring a chocolate cake with this filling!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not at all worth it After burning up 3 stand mixers and 2 hand held mixers, the icing is a total waste of time. even when i finally got a mixer to not burn up on me, following the instructions to the T, the icing was still a thick sticky mess. I should have not tried this at all and stayed with buttercream icing to fill my pies with. This was the most expensive icing i have ever made and was a total loss

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I haven't made this since reading your recipe. However, it is the same as I have made for years. How can you beat easy and tasty!!!! The instructions for filling cupcakes are clear and easy to follow. Thank you for them.
