precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or
injury to persons, including the following:

This appliance is for HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY. It may be plugged into an AC electrical outlet
(ordinary household current). Do not use any other electrical outlet.
CORD PLUG
A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the hazards resulting from entanglement or
tripping over a longer cord. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the
other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet
only one way. If the plug does not fit into the outlet, reverse the plug and try again. If it still
does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
LINE CORD SAFETY TIPS
1. Never pull or yank on cord or the appliance.
2. To insert plug, grasp it firmly and guide it into outlet.
3. To disconnect appliance, grasp plug and remove it from outlet.
4. Before each use, inspect the line cord for cuts and/or abrasion marks. If any are found,
this indicates that the appliance should be serviced and the line cord replaced.
5. Never wrap the cord tightly around the appliance, as this could place undue stress on the
cord where it enters the appliance and cause it to fray and break.
3
Longer detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may be
used if care is exercised in their use. If a longer detachable power-supply cord or
extension cord is used:
1) The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as
great as the electrical rating of the appliance, and
2) The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop
where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
DO NOT OPERATE APPLIANCE IF THE LINE CORD SHOWS ANY DAMAGE, OR IF
APPLIANCE WORKS INTERMITTENTLY OR STOPS WORKING ENTIRELY.
IMPORTANT
During the first few minutes of initial use, you may notice smoke and/or a slight odor. This is
normal and should quickly disappear. It will not recur after appliance has been used a few
more times.

Position the whoopie pie maker on a dry, level, heat-resistant surface.
Release the lid latch and lift the lid to the open position.
To maintain the quality of the nonstick it is recommended to periodically coat the nonstick
surface with a small amount of vegetable oil. This can be done with a paper towel or with
a nonstick oil spray. Wipe off any excess oil.
Plug the power cord into a 120V outlet, preferably on a separate outlet from other
appliances to prevent the circuit from being overloaded.
Lower the lid to the closed position and allow the whoopie pie maker to preheat for a
minimum of 3 minutes. The red POWER light will be illuminated.
TIP: Get batter and fillings ready while the whoopie pie maker is preheating.
When the whoopie pie maker has preheated to the proper cooking temperature, the
green READY light will illuminate.
Open the top lid using an oven mitt or pot holder to avoid making contact with hot surfaces.
CAUTION: Surfaces of the whoopie pie maker are hot. To avoid accidental
burns or contact with the hot surfaces or steam being released while cooking,
always open and close the lid of the whoopie pie maker using an oven mitt or
pot holder.
Fill each cooking reservoir with approximately 1 teaspoon of batter. Be careful not to
overfill the cooking reservoirs as the batter will expand during the cooking process.
TIP: To easily fill the cooking reservoirs, use a small teaspoon measuring
spoon.
Lower the lid using an oven mitt or pot holder. Press down slightly so the lid latch is
secured.
10. Actual cooking time will vary depending on ingredients being prepared. A general
guideline is about 2 minutes of cooking time per batch.

12. Remove the cooked whoopie pies with the fork tool, using caution not to scratch or
damage the nonstick surface. If removing pies with a utensil not provided, use a wooden
or other heat-resistant non-metallic utensil.
13. When finished cooking, remove plug from wall outlet and allow the appliance to cool
before moving, cleaning or storing.

PIE MAKER, AS THOSE MAY DAMAGE THE SURFACES.
To store, be sure all parts are clean and dry. Store appliance in its box or in a clean, dry
place. Never store it while it is hot or wet. Never wrap cord tightly around the appliance; keep

WHOOPIE PIE MAKER HINTS AND SUGGESTIONS
•
Fill the Whoopie pie wells with just about 1 teaspoon of batter. A very small 1 teaspoon
scoop makes it quick and easy. Look at shops specializing in candy making or cake
decorating for a perfectly sized scoop.
•
Whoopie pies cook quickly - about 2 to 2½ minutes, so set a timer. Check to see if the
whoopie pies are done by inserting a toothpick in the center of the cakes. For the most
even cooking, remove the whoopie pies in the same order in which you filled the cooking
reservoirs.
•
The nonstick coating makes it easy to use and generally, the whoopie pie batter never
sticks. However, if slight sticking occurs, spray the surfaces with a nonstick spray.
•
Once cool, fill the whoopie pies with the filling. For a professional look, fill a decorating
bag and pipe the filling on the flat side of half of the whoopie pies, top with remaining
halves.
•
Traditionally, whoopie pie cakes and fillings contrast - fluffy, white marshmallow filling
inside chocolate whoopie pies or cream cheese frosting inside a red velvet whoopie pie
looks and taste fantastic. Of course, the combinations are endless and you can use your
own creativity. Regularly check www.thebabycakesshop.com for new recipes.
•
For a decorative look, roll whoopie pies on the side in sprinkles, crushed nuts, coarse
decorating sugars or finely crushed cookie crumbs. The toppings will adhere to fillings
and create a decorative edge.
•
Many people like to make ice cream sandwiches from whoopie pies. Instead of the
fillings, sandwich softened ice cream between the cooled whoopie pie halves. Wrap
tightly in plastic wrap and freeze.
•
Traditionally, whoopie pie filling was creamy and vanilla, but of course, you can use any
filling you might prefer. For example, make a coconut-pecan filling, similar to what you
might use to frost a German Cake cake or add chopped, toasted nuts or toasted coconut.
Or flavor the filling with lemon, almond, peppermint or maple extract. For a quick treat,
fill whoopie pies with a prepared cake frosting.
