I can already hear the creak of the step stool hinge unfolding the second I tell my 4-year old daughter that I’m about to bake something that involves sprinkles. That’s her cue to drop what she’s doing and get herself propped up next to me at the kitchen island to get involved in the action.

This weekend Heart-Shaped Whoopie Pies were on the menu. We had so much fun with the Bunny Whoopie Pies we made last year at Easter that I was eager to try some for Valentine’s Day. If you’ve never tasted a whoopie pie, these pillowy cakes with marshmallow frosting sandwiched in between are a real treat. Once again, we turned to a Wilton pan (included in today’s giveaway!) to create the fun shape. We decorated them simply with Valentine’s sprinkles around the edges but you can also get really creative and pipe words and other designs on top (like these from Baking Bites).

Ready to bake some fun Valentine’s treats of your own? Wilton is sponsoring a fabulous giveaway for us today: a Valentine’s Day Baking Prize Pack, valued at $50, including the heart-shaped whoopie pie pan plus Valentine’s Day cookie cutters, a pie press, sprinkles and more.
