Attention lovers of spherical, part cookie part cupcake, sweet treats: the whoopies have left the building.
So where can we get our whoopie-on now?
A representative for Whoopie Baking Co. told me Brya and Linkins closed their retail shop at Union to focus on their online and wholesale business, a statement echoed on a post dated April 2 on the company's Facebook page:
"Thank you to everyone who supported our retail location at UNION. At this time, we have closed the Biltmore store and have chosen to focus our efforts on our online and wholesale business efforts. You can place orders for pick up at our Scottsdale location by visiting our website: www.whoopiebakingco.com or by calling us directly: 1-888-608-1229. Thanks and have a wonderful week!"
Whoopie Baking Co. features whoopie pies made with all-natural ingredients and a handmade butter cream fluff. Classic flavors include chocolate and vanilla cakes with vanilla butter cream fluff. Signature whoopies feature creations such as chocolate cake filled with flavors like salted caramel and chocolate ganache, and seasonal offerings such as pumpkin cake with cinnamon butter cream fluff.
"Woofies," Whoopie Baking Co.'s treats for Rover, are also available.
