How to Make Whoopie Pie Cake


  1. Pre heat oven 350*
  2. Grease (2) 9 inch round cake pans.
  3. Beat together the margarine and sugar. Add flour,baking soda and salt. Mix slowly, gradually adding the buttermilk. Beat 2 full minutes.
  4. Add eggs, then gradually add the cocoa, beating another 2 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape the sides of bowl.
  5. Pour batter into prepared pans and bake about 40 minutes until center springs back when gently pushed.
  6. Cool cake layers 5 minutes then remove them from pans and cool them completely on a rack.
    Pour the milk into a stainless steel saucepan over medium heat and gradually whisk in the flour until a thick paste forms. DO NOT SCORCH!!! Remove from stove and cool this mixture in the refrigerator.
  8. In a separate bowl, mix the sugar,butter,vanilla and shortening. Add the cooled paste and whip for at least 3 minutes until creamy. This makes enough icing for a 2 layer cake.
