These treats are actually called Whoopie Pies ("Whoopee Pie" is the name from a specific bakery), and here we have Whoopie Pies galore.  Interestingly, Whoopie Pies are thought to have Amish origins, and the women would put these cakes into farmers' lunchboxes.  When the farmer opened up his lunchbox and saw the treat, he would cry "Whoopie!"

Below are Red Velvet Whoopie Pie with cream cheese filling, Chocolate Whoopie Pie with an extremely light whipped filling (great choice if you like your desserts less sweet, like me), and Kahlua Coffee Whoopie Pie with a coffee-flavored mascarpone filling, which I started calling a "Zippie Pie!"
