Divalicious Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

I have been reading a ton of blogs these days.  Checking out what is popular on the party scene, want to make sure we have a Divalicious menu to offer!!!  So, my latest attempt at a new and tasty treat was a batch of Red Velvet Whoopie Pies.  I myself had never tasted a Whoopie Pie but my friend Jeanette from Bella Diva Parties loves the ones from Starbucks so I thought that I would give it a try.  I searched the Internet for recipes and found 3 worth a try.  The first recipe called for apple cider vinegar and sour cream, yuck interesting!  I know that sour cream is wonderful in cakes and that apple cider vinegar is great as well  but for some reason I just wasn't sure about the two together.  Wrong!   The "cake" portion is very dense (which I love!!) and the cream cheese frosting is sandwiched in the middle so that each and every bite is as delicious as the first.  I'll can't be giving you folks anything less than absolute perfection!!!  Thinking that I need to make the next batch more on the "Bite Size" scale.  They are a bit rich!

See that batter, it's very thick!

Scoop the batter and smooth it over on the top to form a nice mound.

Let them cool and fill them with Yummy vanilla cream cheese frosting and chill.
