Whoopie Pie News

Our MAJOR Whoopie Pie News!

February 01, 2018 0 comments Leave a comment

We tried to keep it a secret for as long as humanly possible, but we are bursting at the seams with excitement to share our big news with whoopie pie lovers everywhere! 

So here it is...

We are joining forces with two other local Maine businesses to open the first ever coffee bar and whoopie pie shop all rolled up in one!  That's right, we've outgrown our beloved shared kitchen space at Fork Food Lab in Portland, Maine, and will be moving into our new diggs sometime early this year.

Our fantastic friends bringing the best ever coffee and coffee beans to the table are none other than White Cap Coffee and Rwanda Bean: two local businesses who care deeply about making a great cup of coffee through a production chain that gives back to its farmers and their communities.  Not only do these guys have huge heart, but trust us, they make one smooth, tasty cup of joe!

Our super cool coffee and whoopie pie cafe collaboration is already under construction at 185 Cottage Road in South Portland, Maine, which locals may recognize as the old Cherished Possessions building - right by the iconic Red's Dairy Freeze and unforgettably delicious Otto Pizza.  The space boasts a total of 5,300 square feet, which will encompass a whoopie pie bakery and coffee bean roasting with a retail shop in the front.

We'll keep you posted with updates about our new space and when to expect the grand opening here on our blog and on social media, but you can also sign up for our newsletter at bit.ly/capewhoopies to ensure an invite!

Last night's Out On Ice event held at The Rink at Thompson's Point in Portland, Maine was a huge success!  This very special annual event supports 

GLSEN-Southern Maine and EqualityMaine's programs creating safer schools for LGBT youth in Southern Maine.  The whoopettes were in attendance, serving up Maine's best whoopie pies from the Yurt Cafe, right alongside local business buddies, White Cap Coffee and the Rwanda Bean Company.  Ice skaters and spectators enjoyed our custom flavor whoopie pies made specially for the event - ANGEL KISS, featuring vanilla cakes with Frangelico cream filling - along with best-sellers BROMANCE and the classic MAINE-IACS.  Check out our pics from this amazing community event!

January 19, 2018 0 comments Leave a comment

If you're near Portland, Maine this Saturday, January 20th, and have a hankering for a whoopie pie, come check the third annual "Out On Ice" event at The Rink at Thompson's Point!  The event supports GLSEN-Southern Maine and EqualityMaine's programs creating safer schools for LGBT youth in Southern Maine.  In addition to ice skating, music, DJs and dancing, the event will feature drag performances, food trucks, a fire pit, warming hut with a cash bar (for ages 21+), and gourmet whoopie pies by Cape Whoopies!  We pride ourselves on making custom gifts for our most special friends in the local community, so you'll be able to try ANGEL KISS (vanilla cakes with Frangelico cream), made just for this very special occasion.  You'll also find two of our best-selling flavors: MAINE-IAC (the classic, chocolate cakes with vanilla filling) and BROMANCE (chocolate chip cakes with vanilla filling).

The event will be hosted by Blake and Eva from the Morning Show on Coast 93.1, and will hold 2 sessions.  Session 1 will be held from 5:30-7:30pm (GSTA students, youth, families) and Session 2 will be from 8-10pm (community members); but both sessions are open to anyone who would like to attend and all ages are welcome.  DJ Foxy and DJ Disco Dungeon will be spinning the tunes.

You might be a terrible ice skater, and if so, that's no problem!  Just come hang out, support a good cause, and grab a whoopie pie - or 2, or 3...

It's National Cookie Day!

December 04, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Did you know that December 4th is National Cookie Day?!  Here at Cape Whoopies, we're celebrating our close cousin dessert by indulging in a delicious Bromance whoopie pie.  Featuring chocolate chip cakes that are just as good as Mom's freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, and vanilla cream filling, the Bromance is unsurprisingly one of our top-selling flavors. You'd have to ask our head whoopette to be sure, but we're pretty positive this decadent flavor combination was inspired by a warm chocolate chip cookie dipped in milk.  Yum!

Whoopie pies are often described as two cookie-cakes with marshmallowy cream filling in between, so today, on national cookie day, WE SALUTE YOU, COOKIES!  We’d be nothing without you!

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating the cookie day spirit, and spoil yourself a bit with your favorite dessert – whatever it may be.  Make sure to check out all our whoopie pie flavors while you’re at it, and cross a few names off your nice Christmas list.

A Day in the Life of Maine's Best Whoopie Pie Company

December 03, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

After tasting our sweet treats, we know that our customers and fans may often wonder what it's like behind the scenes at a whoopie pie company.  So we’d like to give you a little insight into what happens in a regular business day at Cape Whoopies. 

The morning begins as head whoopette and Cape Whoopies’ owner, Marcia, arrives at the industrial kitchen and takes a quick survey of the sparkling clean space, reviewing each of the priorities for the day and deciding where each work station will need to be.  Her team of whoopettes (with the occasional whoopie dude) are next to appear.  With smiles, bubbling laughter, and the kindest of greetings, there’s no doubt this crew looks forward to coming together each day.

As each of the stations are set, ovens are preheated, and ingredients or packaging materials all in place, the work officially begins!  It’s not long before delicious smells fill the air, and like busy little bees, the whoopette team efficiently handles the mixing, baking, assembly, and packaging of their mouthwatering creations.  Seeing tray after tray of freshly made whoopie pie cakes is sure to trigger the most discerning of sweet tooths – they look beautiful and delicious!

Even after the longest days in the very busy holiday season, the whoopettes end the day with hugs and more smiles, feeling accomplished over the finished product.  There's no question this crew loves what they do.  Being the best whoopie pie company (or any small business) isn't always easy, but it IS always fun when you have the best, sweetest, most enthusiastic and hard-working employees and coworkers!
