One-Eyed Whoopie Pies
The ?eyes? have it?these whoopie pies are a scream for Halloween parties. Begin with our Whoopie Pie Pan and then pipe the details using buttercream icing.
Each treat serves 1.
Bake and cool whoopie pies according to pan directions.
Warm jam up to spread easier. Place jam in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on low for 10 seconds. Use spatula to heavily spread jam between pies and press pies together so jam oozes out of sides.
Prepare icing and tint portion black; reserve some white. For eyeball, use tip 12 and white icing to pipe ball. For pupil, use tip 4 and black icing to pipe dot. Use red piping gel to pipe veins.
The ball shape makes bold borders and is the first step to learn for figure piping. Vary the basic look by adding stars, dots or spirals on the ball shapes.
Perfect for classic borders or cloudlike decorations, dots are a versatile technique that can be piped in a range of sizes. The dot technique can be used as a simple border for cakes and cookies, as well as for icing cupcakes or piping meringues.
