Yes, Mandy, I do know what Whoopie Pies are. My sister-in-law use to make them for all our family picnics when our children were young. Here is the recipe taken from a small paperback Pennsylvania Dutch Cookbook.
CHOCOLATE WHOOPIE PIES Makes 4 dozen sandwich pies
2 cups sugar 1 cup shortening 2 eggs 4 cups flour 1 cup baking cocoa 2 tsp. vanilla 1 tsp. salt 1 cup sour milk 2 tsp. baking soda 1 cup hot water
1) Cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs. 2) Sift together flour, cocoa, and salt. Add alternately with sour milk. Add vanilla. Dissolve soda in hot water and add last. Mix well. 3) Drop by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. 4) Make sandwiches from 2 cookies filled with Whoopie Pie Filling. Recipe for filling will need to be doubled for this batch of cookies.

You might like to give the recipe found at this link a try. It appears to be a Mr. Food recipe. I am not entirely sure. The whoopie pies start with a cake mix. I would think that you could substitute any flavor cake mix beside chocolate.
