Two Fat Cats Bakery
Nothing like carting yourself all the way to Maine only to find that Two Fat Cats Bakery is out of whoopie pies.
|Wherefore Art Thou Whoopie Pie?|
One of Portland's two Food Network-featured dishes is the whoopie pie at Two Fat Cats Bakery, which is singled out by Chuck Hughes on the CAKE WALK episode. Venturing through the Maine mist (temporarily believing we have mistakenly landed in Seattle), we arrive at the bakery just before the 6:00pm closing time (by the way, what is with everything in Portland closing by 6:00pm? Highly inconvenient).

“We’re actually out of whoopie pies today.”
The workers tell us that the whoopie pies will be back in the morning, so the next day, we venture back over to the wrong side of the tracks to finally procure a whoopie pie. We are both familiar with these delicacies due to our soon-to-be-betrothed college roommate, who used to receive care-packages of them from her mother (she also happened to use them as a substitution for her cake at said wedding). However, this is our first time purchasing a genuine Maine whoopie pie ourselves.
And it is the best we ever had.
