Whoopie Pie Cake
Karen Cope of Minneapolis won a blue ribbon at the Minnesota State Fair for this stunning chocolate-and-marshmallow cake, based on whoopie pie cookies.
In a large mixing bowl, beat 3/4 cup softened butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add one 7-ounce jar marshmallow crème, 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla. Beat until smooth.
In a small saucepan, heat 1/4 cup heavy cream over medium heat. Add 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate pieces (2 ounces). Heat and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted and smooth. Makes about 1/3 cup.
