A million years ago I worked as the assistant to the executive producer of ABC’s hit show Wipeout. Every year I would participate in the Wipeout Cookie Contest. Actually, I was only there for a little over a year and begged my way into a couple other contests. From what I remember I won second or third place with these red velvet whoopie pies.
The inspiration behind these fluffy, velvety cakes came from Crave Café, located on Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks, California. Crave stocks their treats from Xtreme Dessets, which used to be a bakery in Studio City, but looks like they only do wholesale now.
I managed to find a recipe very similar to these red velvet delights. Try them for the holidays or even just for yourself!
