That's very Dionysian, while being very un-Dionysian, of you.
Also, easy whoopie pies; you can make the pies out of any flavor cake mix you like, I've done chocolate and lemon, as those are my favorites:
½ C water
½ C veggie oil
2 sticks of butter, softened (I did one softened stick of butter with ½ C of non-hydrogenated veggie shortening, it's a little healthier)
3-4 C powdered sugar, or less--your preference (less is mine)
2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400 degrees (my oven runs hot, so I had to lower it to 350, so check and make sure)
In a mixer (or with an electric mixer, or with a whisk), combine cake mix, eggs, water and oil. Whip together for 2-3 minutes.
On a parchment paper or Silpat lined baking sheet, scoop out batter into round mounds. You can use an ice cream scoop, sorbet scoop, or a spoon if you don’t have either of those
Bake for 8 minutes
For the icing, whip together butter and sugar (start with 3 cups of powdered sugar, then add more if necessary for thickness). Whip for 5 minutes until light and fluffy (the extra time makes all the difference!). Scoop into a pastry bag, or a Ziploc bag with the corner cut off, and pipe onto the inside of the bottom pies. Place top pies.. on top!
