So....is anybody heading to Disney-MGM anytime soon? I heard through the grapevine that carrot cake whoopie pies are being sold somewhere at Disney-MGM but I'm not sure where. If anyone happens to see one, can you post a photo or, if you can swing it, get the recipe? I'm on a HUGE carrot cake kick right now and this sounds right up my alley.

Check out the food photo thread. I think I saw one on there, and I think the poster got it from The Writer's Stop. It sure looked yummy!

YESSSSS, that's where I've seen carrot cake wonders:love: Right next to the Sci-Fi. They have the yummiest baked goodies I've ever seen in their cases. And this summer I noticed the prices being lower than at our resort.:thumbsup2

I always thought they were a Pennsylvania Dutch thing! I grew up in Central PA and remember them being a constant fixture at bake sales, church gatherings, etc. My grandmother and mom both made the classic - chocolate cake with white filling - but my mom also made a version with chocolate cake and peanut butter filling. Other than that, they were always chocolate cake with white filling. Oh, and they were called "gobs" not "whoopie pies".

I made a lemon version about 6 months ago and my mom insisted they couldn't be gobs because the cake has to be chocolate. I'm really going to blow her mind with the carrot cake version!! :lmao:

The cakes were originally baked in small hoops and hence called HOOPIE pies which then became Whoopie pies.

Here's what Wikepedia says :

A whoopie pie, sometimes alternatively called a gob or a black-and-white, is a baked good traditional to the Pennsylvania Dutch culture as well as New England, made of two small, chocolate, disk-shaped cakes with a sweet, creamy frosting sandwiched between them.

I know them here in Western PA as gobs. I have a friend who makes the original chocolate ones that are the most delicious ones anywhere!:goodvibes

The carrot cake ones sound good, too.

Would it be considered a little too much if I put that pic as my desktop background? :confused3 :laughing:

PLEASE tell me the carrot cake ones at MGM do NOT have cream cheese filling!?!?! That's not one of my authorized 'treats' on my upcoming vacation in 21 days!

silently praying that it is cream cheese filling and scheduling a stop for one at this moment
