Ingredients

For the Whoopie Cakes

  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2 drops yellow gel food coloring
  • 3 drops blue gel food coloring

For the Buttercream Filling

  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk

For the Decorating Grey Buttercream

  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 drop black gel food coloring

For Decorating

  • 6 large marshmallows, cut into thirds and flattened (to use as Minions' eyes)
  • black decorating frosting

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Gradually increase speed to high and continue beating until mixture is creamy.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. 
  • Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture in thirds, alternating with the buttermilk. 
  • When thoroughly combined, divide the batter into two bowls. Color half of the batter with blue gel food coloring and the other half will be colored with yellow gel food coloring.
  • Place each colored batter in individual frosting bags.  Pipe each colored batter onto a lined baking sheet at about 2 inches in diameter. 
  • Bake in a preheated oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer on a wire rack to cool.
  • To prepare the filling, combine butter, sugar, and milk in a bowl. Beat on high speed until thoroughly combined and forms stiff peaks.
  • To make the decorating buttercream, combine butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl. Beat on medium speed, then gradually increase to high speed and continue to beat until mixture forms stiff peaks. 
  • Add black gel food coloring to buttercream and mix until evenly colored light grey. 
  • To assemble the whoopie pies, spread the filling on the bottom of one blue cake. Place a yellow cake on top of the buttercream to form a sandwich. 
  • Place a marshmallow half (or two, depending on which Minions face you’d like – some have one eye and others have two!) in the middle of the whoopie pie. Use the grey buttercream to glue on.
  • Using the black frosting, draw irises on the marshmallow eyes. Use the grey buttercream to frost “goggles” around the eyes. 

Notes

The recipe will yield about 8 to 10 whoopie pies depending on size.
