Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies

I came across a carrot cake whoopie pie recipe on Pinterest years ago.  While the idea was brilliant and mouthwatering, the end result was a fail, as Pinterest recipes often go.  But unwilling to let go of a good idea, I reworked that recipe until I was happy with it and now am kinda known for them.  I make them at Easter every year and bring them to parties and potlucks.  People love and curse me at the same time because they are one of those things you want to eat until you are sick.  And using the Ankarsrum to make them means baking is a breeze, especially when I also use the shredder attachment for the carrots.
