Hello everyone,

Are you all enjoying Pesach?

I do, though it's rather boring for me cause I can't work :(

I would like to present to you, for the people who don't already know them, the


A rather simple name for a a very delicious cousin of the cupcake.

I fell totally in love with them (eating them and making them)

A whoopie pie is like a sandwich, but made with two soft cookies with a fluffy filling.
The original and most commonly made whoopie pie is chocolate. but cooks like to experiment, and today they come in all flavors and colors.

The recipe for whoopie pies has its origins with the Amish, and in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania in the United States. Amish cooking is about old recipes that have fed families for generations, with no trendy or cross-cultural fusions or mixtures.
These cake-like whoopie pies were considered a special treat because they were originally made from leftover batter. According to Amish legend, when children would find these treats in their lunch bags, they would shout "Whoopie!"

Here are some links of articles about the whoopie pies

Anyway I'll post some pictures for you all to get familiar with this new trend.

After Pesach of course available at Cupcakes & Cookies.

For now חג שמח

Last Friday we participated at the Garden Boutique Fair at Netanella's. It was so nice. When I step into Netanella's garden/house I feel so at home because it is such a חוץ לארץ feeling.

It was big fun, had the change to see some sweet people again, with their beautiful products. Everything was just wonderful.

If you want to look up the participants and drool over their things read my last post or go to

Being there and seeing people enjoy my cupcakes gives me such a grateful feeling, and such inspiration that I am thinking always about new ideas, and trends.

Well to combine cupcakes with something else has to be totally something in the same area.

A long time ago I started experimenting with macaroons, which are just soooo delicious. And when I was in Paris I went to La Duree. I just totally went through the roof. What a store, just like a fairy tail. Since then the macaroons just don't leave my head ( and that's already 9 years hmhm ago).

now the fact is that macaroons became a trend just like cupcakes so why not combine the two in my business.

So from today on it's Cupcakes, Cookies and Macaroons.

To give away a little secret, which is really just still in baby shoes, I am looking into the fact that for my business at this point, the best thing to do is to open a boutique in Tel Aviv AAAAAAAAAHHHH, I am so exited. But first we have to see if it will be financially worth wile.

Anyway, I will keep you all informed!!!

Have a wonderful Pesah.
