Why a PINK chef's coat?

Simply put, I carry my Dad's legacy with me through my cookbook, cooking and everyday I am writing my food columns, he is always with me. I carry my Mom with me through a silent reminder of her struggle with breast cancer that took her life, as well as the lives of many other women who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, this horrible affliction. Besides, why not pink? It makes a man look good!

Children's Holiday Whoopies

You might just be tempted to sneak a few for yourself. This recipe makes about 7-9 mini Whoopies, filled. I made this recipe just as simple as I can for those who are unfamiliar with making Whoope Pies. So with that in mind, use prepared cake frosting if desired or make your own.


For 4 people


  • 1 3/4 cup(s) flour
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1/2 cup(s) sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup(s) milk
  • food coloring of your choice
  • Prepared frosting or fluffy frosting, recipe below:
  • 1/2 cup(s) marshmallow fluff
  • 2 tablespoon(s) vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup(s) powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla

Children's Holiday Whoopies Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Line a 9x13-inch baking pan with wax paper. In one bowl, mix the dry ingredients well. In another, mix the eggs and milk. Combine both bowls.
  2. Divide into 2 or 3 separate bowls, if desired, and color with food coloring. I added 12 drops of blue, 12 drops or yellow and 12 drops of green in the bowls. Mix well and, using a tablespoon, heap it with the cake batter and "plop" it on the prepared pan, twisiting the spoon to make a round shape.
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or when touched in the center it is firm. Remove from oven and let cool on the waxed paper.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare frosting by whipping the shortening until creamy. Add the fluff and 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Beat on low with hand or table top mixer until combined. Add the remainder of the powdered sugar in 1/4 cup measurements until well mixed. Add the vanilla and mix well. Frost your Whoopies.
