I was really excited to get this book. When it stated there were TWELVE recipes to making whoopie pies and filling I was really excited. I thought, finally I can make all kinds of different pies. Not the case. Each recipe one change one or two ingredients and/or amount of ingredient. So you really get a recipe for Chocolate pie, 1 vanilla and 1 red velvet. Icing recipe is either with or without marshmallow fluff... I'm sorry, but EVERY single recipe listed is FREE on the internet, which is where the author got them, or was given to her by a bakery... I thought these would be new, exciting recipes and fillings. The author talked about how exciting it is to try different fillings with different cake flavors, such as Peanut Butter or Mint combinations, etc. and did not include any recipes. How are we to make these exciting combinations, when the base recipe isn't included to make them? This is the first time I have ever decided to return a book to amazon. I think it was a complete waste of money.
