Strawberry Shortcake Whoopie PiesBack to Eden Bakery Boutique

Whoopie pies were said to be the next dessert trend, and while these cream filled cake sandwiches haven’t taken the mainstream by storm quite yet, they have found a home in bakeries everywhere in a myriad of flavors to compete with the cupcake. At Back to Eden Bakery Boutique, an adorable bakeshop specializing in vegan-friendly sweets, the strawberry shortcake whoopie pie offers dessert lovers a summery treat free of all animal ingredients. – Amy Cao
