Christmas Tree Whoopie Pies Cake Mixture

Roll the cake mix into balls, approximately 2 inches in size and place on your lined baking sheet, at least 1 inch apart from each other. Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool completely.

For the buttercream, beat butter, confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla on medium speed. Gradually increase to high and once ingredients are smooth and well-combined, divide evenly in two separate bowls.

Use one bowl of buttercream as the filling of your whoopie pies. Use an offset spatula to spread buttercream on the backside of one cake and then sandwich it with another.
