Before getting into the nitty-gritty of the recipe, here's the deal: don't let the thought of homemade whoopie pies intimidate you. This recipe is all about having fun and enjoying the process, not to mention the delicious outcome. Whether you're a baking newbie or a seasoned pro, these Funfetti Whoopie Pies are going to turn out great. Plus, who can resist those sprinkles?

Ingredients You'll Need:

For the cakes:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 11 tablespoons unsalted butter (softened, because nobody's got time for hard butter)
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder (the secret lift)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (balance is key)
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract (for that rich flavor)
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract (trust me, it's worth it)
  • 2 large eggs (they're binding us all together)
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (the foundation)
  • 2/3 cup milk (for moistness)
  • 2/3 cup colorful sprinkles (avoid nonpareils; we don’t want color bleed ruining the party)

For the vanilla frosting:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter (softened, again)
  • 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar (sweet perfection)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (flavor enhancer)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream (for that creamy dreaminess)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (double the flavor)

Let’s Bake Some Magic:

For the cakes:

  1. Prep Time: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and get those baking sheets ready with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  2. Mix It Up: In a stand mixer, cream together the sugar and butter until it's light and has a happy aura. Mix in the baking powder, extracts, and salt.
  3. Eggs Join the Party: Add the eggs one by one, making sure each is fully incorporated before inviting the next.
  4. The Flour-Milk Dance: Alternate adding flour and milk, starting and ending with flour, but remember—we’re moving to the rhythm, not running a race. Combine gently.
  5. Sprinkle Sprinkle: Gently fold in the sprinkles with a spatula. Just a few stirs, we don’t want a sprinkle dye job here.
  6. Scoop & Bake: Use a small cookie scoop to plop the batter on prepared sheets. Give them some room, they like to breathe. Bake for 7-8 minutes until just right. Aim for golden bottoms rather than doughy middles.

For the frosting:

  1. Whip It Good: Whip the butter until it’s fluffy, then gradually add the powdered sugar and salt. Pour in the vanilla and cream while the mixer goes. Crank it up to high for 3 minutes for peak fluffiness.
  2. Fill ‘er Up: Transfer the frosting to a ziplock bag, snip a corner, and you’ve got yourself a DIY piping bag.

Assembly Time:

Match cooled cakes in pairs, pipe a generous swirl of frosting on one half, and sandwich with its partner. Voila, Funfetti Whoopie Pies!

Serve these at your next get-together or, let's be real, keep them all for yourself (we're not judging). Remember, it's not just about the tasty treat at the end; it's about the fun and sprinkle-filled journey there. Enjoy your baking adventure!
