Preheat oven to 180°C (top/bottom heat). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

…for the chocolate batter:

Combine 75 grams of soft butter together with 90 grams of sugar, 1 sachet of vanilla sugar & a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl for about 2 – 3 minutes using a mixer.

Add 1 egg and continue mixing for 1 – 2 minutes until creamy & fluffy. Next, add ½ sachet of baking powder and 150 grams of flour through a sieve. Finally, add 25 grams of baking cocoa and 125 milliliters of buttermilk and gently mix with a dough scraper or spatula until all the ingredients have been evenly distributed and the batter falls heavily from the spoon.

Transfer the batter into a spraying bag with large, round nozzle and squirt about 20 small batter heaps with plenty space between each other onto the prepared baking sheets.

Bake the whoopie pies one sheet after the other in the preheated oven for 12 – 13 minutes, then remove and allow to cool completely.

…for the cream:

Add 125 grams of soft butter along with about 50 grams of powdered sugar to a mixing bowl and mix with a mixer for 2 – 3 minutes. Then gradually add the remaining powdered sugar until a light & smooth cream. Finally add 25 milliliters of beetroot juice and color the cream pink.

…for the whoopie pies:

Transfer the pink cream into a spray bag and then squirt about 1 heaping tablespoon on the flat side of the half of the Whoopie Pies. Then gently press a second Whoopie Pie half onto the cream.
