Whoopie for Whoopie Pies

We couldn’t be more excited to share these scrumptious little Whoopie Pies with you! Aren’t they cute? We have three new mixes in stock: chocolate, ginger spice and red velvet - perfect for any celebration or just because. These nostalgic New England favorites are boxed up in a handy-dandy mix made with the finest ingredients available including Nielsen-Massey vanilla and Callebaut cocoa. One bite and you’ll hollar whoopie! A filling recipe is included, but we love the idea of mixing it up and trying flavored fillings – pumpkin, lemon, berry – the sky is the limit! Of course, you need fancy packaging – we like using glassine envelopes (just trim the edge with craft scissors for an extra special touch – see photo above) and tying them with retro striped twine from our new line, Divine Twine. Brown Sugar is featured above – but nine other delightful colors are available. Or, have you seen our new and perfectly spring-y berry baskets? Check them out below. These 1 pint baskets are made from wood and feature a contrasting trim in an array of colors. A fresh way to present a little gift for a wedding, baby shower favor, or to welcome your guests to an event – and for filling up with Whoopie Pies!

Butterflies and Botanicals Wafer Paper Sets

Feast your eyes on these new wafer paper beauties! Our Butterflies and Botanicals Wafer Paper collection is in stock, featuring poppy and butterfly designs, and pairs up nicely with a couple fabulous new candy box patterns, Poppy Design and Butterflies Design. Create a stunning presentation with wafer paper cookies (we used the crinkle square cookie cutter) packaged in these colorful boxes. Wafer Paper is simple to use…Follow the steps below for a baking masterpiece!

• Use No Fail Sugar Cookie recipe and cut out several crinkle square cookie shapes. Bake and cool as directed.
• Ice each cookie with 1 layer of royal icing or buttercream, if you prefer. Let completely dry.
• Carefully cut out wafer paper butterflies using craft scissors, making sure each one will fit on the cookie. Be careful, wafer paper is fragile!
• Spread a thin layer of edible clear gel onto the wafer paper butterfly and slightly fold in the center, so the wings are bent up. Place each butterfly in a section of the egg carton so that the wings will dry standing up.
• Add shimmer to the butterflies by dusting with a small amount of Gold Luster Dust or White Edible Glitter. Let butterflies completely dry in egg carton.
• Adhere butterflies to cookies by using a dab of edible clear gel on the underside of the body of the butterfly and attaching to cookie. Hold in place for a minute before drying on its own. Let dry completely.
• Add additional decorations, such as Black Sugar Pearls, to complete the cookie design.
• Let completely dry and store in an airtight container.
