Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“An absolutely gorgeous book by my favorite cake maker in the whole world.”
Jamie Oliver

“Claire Ptak creates the very best desserts: Simple, delicious, pure. This is a charming book that perfectly captures its subject.”
—Alice Waters

“Claire has taken store cupboard basics and turned them into a book of recipes so delicious you'll want to eat the pages.”
—April Bloomfield

“Claire Ptak is my favorite baker. Her competent yet whimsical style imbues everything she bakes—from a classic French apple tart to the humble whoopie pie—with a delicate magic.”
—David Tanis, author of A Platter of Figs and Heart of the Artichoke

"If you are getting bored with cupcakes and wondering what the next new baking fad will be, this book . . . will certainly contribute to the growing interest in whoopie pies. A far cry from soggy packaged cakes held together with marshmallow glue, these recipes are cause for delight. VERDICT With minimal baking skills and the all-important stand mixer, you can be the first in your neighborhood to bring homemade whoopie pies to the feast! Recommended."
Library Journal

“A cool approach from someone with impeccable credentials—and there's no denying the popularity of the whoopie pie genre.”
Bay Area Insider

Library Journal
If you are getting bored with cupcakes and wondering what the next new baking fad will be, this book—and a number of other recent titles, including Steven Gdula's Gobba Gobba Hey and Susanna Tee's Whoopies!—will certainly contribute to the growing interest in whoopie pies. A far cry from soggy packaged cakes held together with marshmallow glue, these recipes are cause for delight. Who knew a whoopie pie could be as simple as a dab of cake batter on a parchment-lined baking sheet? Former Chez Panisse pastry chef Ptak's Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Cream Cheese Filling are especially intriguing. VERDICT With minimal baking skills and the all-important stand mixer, you can be the first in your neighborhood to bring homemade whoopie pies to the feast! Recommended.—Grace Shanahan, formerly with Brooklyn P.L., NY

    I love this book!

    I first saw this book at the library and was so impressed with it that I decided to purchase it. It has lots of great recipes for whoopie pies with beautiful pictures. Can't wait to try the strawberry whoopie pies.
