Tell someone how you really feel with these delicious cream-filled treats shaped like emojis.
250 milliliters skim milk
1 tablespoon vinegar
275 grams Butter, Softened
200 grams Sugar
Yellow Food Colouring
2 teaspoons vanilla
450 grams Plain Flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
250 grams icing sugar
Edible Googly eyes
Edible markers in black and red
First make a buttermilk by combining the vinegar and milk in a small bowl. Stir and then set aside.
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, cream 125 grams of butter and the sugar together until pale and creamy then beat in the egg, yellow food colouring and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl add the flour, baking soda and salt, mix. Gradually add spoonfuls of the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mixing well after each addition, along with a few glugs of buttermilk to make a smooth, thick cake mixture. You may not need all the buttermilk.
Place batter in a piping bag or large freezer bag and cut a one inch opening in one of the corners. Gently pipe out the batter on to the baking trays to make even mounds roughly 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Allow room for spreading. Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes until risen, lightly golden and firm to the touch. Cool for 5 minutes on the trays before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Decorate the top side of half of the whoopie pies by drawing emoji faces using the edible markers. Attach the googly eye with a small dab of icing.
For the icing, whisk together the remaining softened butter, 1 teaspoon extract and icing sugar until smooth and spreadable. Place in a piping bag with a star tip and carefully pipe onto the flat side of one of the pies. Place the second pie on top and serve.
