Ana is right, desserts are subject to trends just like anything else. As a matter of fact, the New York Times ran an article today about the newest dessert trend, the whoopie pie, which the NYT describes as “a cake-like sandwich, or perhaps a sandwich-like cake.” Either way, the whoopie pie is rising up in the ranks of desserts, spreading out from its original home in Maine across the country.
Last fall, they [whoopies] even cracked the lineup at Magnolia Bakery in Manhattan, which helped turn cupcakes into a national craze thanks to the bakery’s exposure on “Sex and the City.”
Although whoopie pies look delicious… I just can’t see them being the next fashionable dessert like cupcakes are!
What do you think? Are whoopie pies the next cupcake?
