The New Hampshire based confectioners of JL Cakes have created a novel innovation in the baking industry with their unique Whoopie Pies. Don’t be fooled, these delicacies have definitely exceeded your regular old moon pie. The company’s online ordering system makes it super simple to pick and order flavors. Let’s delve into what exactly makes these cakes so unique and exquisite, and if they truly make you feel like shouting “whoopie!”
When I’m about to dive into a delicious sweet treat, first impressions are crucial. I want to look at the treat and instantly feel my mouth begin to water. Upon first glance at the crisp, brightly colored packaging surrounding the monstrous cakes, I could feel my stomach beginning to grumble. The box enclosing the cakes kept them perfectly intact and ready to be devoured.
Aside from presentation, the true test is the quality of taste. Seeking to try something out of the ordinary, their unique list of flavors initially caught my attention. And boy, oh boy, these cakes truly lived up to the hype. Each flavor is enclosed in a rich, super moist, yet dense chocolate cake, stuffed with a creamy, flavorful filling that melts in your mouth. I was impressed with their ability to perfectly balance the sweetness and richness of the cake. Paired with a unique filling that is bursting with flavor, this pie provides the dynamic duo you never knew you needed.
As a huge chocolate and spicy fan, I was so excited to try the Mexican Chocolate Flavor. And let me tell you, it does not disappoint! The smooth filling provides that little kick at the end that I so crave! The spiciness is not overpowering at all, which makes it perfect even for those who are less adventurous when it comes to spice. This has to be one of my favorite flavors by far! Another Latin American flavor is Churro, which balances the chocolate with a wonderful cinnamon filling. I have found Churro flavored treats disappointing in the past, but I was thrilled with the way they were able to pack in all of that cinnamon goodness.
I was super excited to try their extraordinary baklava flavor, which is composed of a lovely honey filling with walnuts. The nuts provided a crunch that created flawless symmetry with the soft cake. I love how this company strives for quality and uniqueness through flavors that incorporate a wide variety of cultural palates.
Aside from the Whoopie Pies, JL Cakes also features these super neat Snowballs! They consist of either chocolate or vanilla cake balls with a creamy vanilla filling, all surrounded by a thick layer of coconut flakes. The robust coconut flavor paired perfectly with the rest of the cake, complimenting the flavors by incorporating a hint of nuttiness to the classic chocolate.
Overall, I can now mark these pies with my other favorite go-to sweet treats! These modern, unique cakes will be a new staple in my household for parties, family gatherings, or just as a snack to satisfy my sweet tooth!
