From the moment I first learned to cook, I have loved making delicious food for my friends and family just to hear their enjoyment! Once I moved to Maine and tasted a whoopie pie, I just knew that I could do better. I baked and filled them and gave them away to friends, just to hear their reactions. As I developed my own recipes and tricks I also found more friends who loved whoopie pies. If you’re anywhere near Portland, Maine, you know DiMillo's Floating Restaurant.
My husband and I became regulars every Friday night and often brought whoopie pies to all the employees, again, just so we could experience the frenzy as people tasted our delights! My husband had to fight his way into the bar area when he was carrying a large tray of pies, with the patrons trying to grab one before he could hand them off to the employees. It was so much fun to see the excitement! My oldest daughter often said we should start a business with this great little pie. Through a series of events, and a false start or two, Cape Whoopies was born.
I've enjoyed every moment of getting my product into Whole Foods Market in both Portland, Maine and Whole Foods in Andover, Mass and now on a regional level... as well as several restaurants, coffee shops and pizza places and goldbely.com, a web site of food explorers!. I must say I love what I do and I do what I love...and most of all I love to exceed your every expectation with my little gourmet whoopie pies!
A Little About Cape Whoopies...
Cape Whoopies lives in the land of lighthouses and boats and rocky shores. It’s a cozy place to be where your mind is taken to days of long ago, when every day was filled with hard work, a cup of coffee, and a treat was the reward of the day. Think of hours by the sea where the fog is rolling in and the waves are crashing on the shore. There, on the porch, is your favorite chair, waiting for you, along with a cup of coffee and a sweet treat (a whoopie pie!). We love the feel of Maine and the way the people love their whoopie pies. We wanted to take the state treat and make it into a gourmet delight. We are so inspired by where we live that we desire to share our special gourmet treat with all our customers in the hopes that they will hear the fog horn and feel the sea’s mist on their face, just as we do, every day while we bake.
