What Type Of Cake Mix And Pudding To Use

whoopie pies

The best part of making this whoopie pie recipe is you can use any cake mix and pudding combo you want.

I usually make a classic chocolate or devils food cake mix with a vanilla pudding mix.

You can use lemon cake mix and cherry pudding, or carrot cake and tapioca pudding. You can honestly make any combination you want. My kids love a funfetti cake mix with chocolate pudding! (my favorite is pumpkin cake mix with caramel pudding)
