Welcome to the irresistible world of the whoopie pie. These delicious delights, which hail originally from America, are baking's latest trend.

Whoopie pies are two discs of sponge cake sandwiching a thick buttercream filling. They were originally baked by the Amish community. These melt-in-the-mouth treats are a suprise hit in Britain, where they are outselling cupcakes, donuts and macaroons.

With over 60 mouthwatering recipes this is a Whoopie-baker’s bible. It has treats for every occasion including seasonal flavours like Christmas cake whoopies, Easter rhubarb with vanilla custard, indulgent treats like pumpkin with cream cheese, and cute party snacks like mocha-orange with espresso whipped cream. There are even alternative cake-cookie recipes such as peanut butter cookies and chocolate macaroons. Find out what all the fuss is about - with the Whoopie Pie Book.

The Whoopie Pie Book is a UK publication. All measurements are metricl and metric cup & spoon.

The Whoopie Pie Book is on The Guardian's list of Best Cookbooks of 2010
