Whoopie pies!

Studio 5 Gourmet Contributor Amy Richardson has been tracking down the trend.

Part of the appeal is the ability to customize flavors with whoopie pies. Amy's top 5 flavor combinations are:

White Chocolate whoopie pies with Stawberry Creme

Banana whoopie pies with Chocolate Hazelnut Creme

Carrot Cake whoopie pies with Pineapple Creme

Boston Cream whoopie pies

Orange whoopie pies with Vanilla Creme

Although you can find mixes for whoopie pies, you can also make them from a basic cake mix:
