Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 180C, 350F, Gas Mark 4 and lightly grease 2 large baking sheets.

2. Place all the cake ingredients in a large mixing bowl and beat until well blended.

3. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets to make 16 cakes making sure you space them about 5cm/2-inch apart on all sides, then using the back of a spoon, spread each into circles no larger than 7cm/3-inch circles.

4. Bake for 12-15 minutes until they are firm to the touch. Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.

5. For the filling, place the butter, cream cheese and lemon zest in a mixing bowl and beat together until well mixed.

6. Add the icing sugar and beat until smooth. If the mixture seems too soft, add a little more icing sugar or chill to firm it up.

7. Assemble the whoopie pies by spreading the flat side of a cold cake with a generous amount of filling.  Place another cake, flat side down, on top of the filling then press together lightly.

9. To make the icing, mix together the lemon juice, water and a few drops of yellow food colouring in a medium sized mixing bowl, then add the icing sugar and mix until well blended and smooth and liquid enough to thickly coat the back of a spoon. Thinly ice the tops of the filled whoopie pies then sprinkle with hundreds and thousands if using.
