No Big Whoop's Story
Hi! I'm Widdi Turner, Chief Whoopie Officer for No Big Whoop! Bakery. I've worn a lot of hats in my life, from actor (most folks know me from the Food Network's Good Eats with Alton Brown), to TV & radio commercial producer, to wildlife sanctuary educational assistant, to audiobook narrator and more, but for the past eight years, I've been making whoopie...pies! This wonderful adventure began when, as a member of a baton twirling troupe called Turnin' TriXXX based out of the Little Five Points neighborhood of Atlanta, I would make treats to sell at our bake sales (hey, someone had to pay for those wigs and costumes!). On February 14, 2011, I sold my first whoopie pies at our Valentine bake sale at the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club, and I haven't stopped baking them since!
Oh, and the name? Well, first it came about because my
whoopie pies are smaller than the traditional Amish ones.
But No Big Whoop is more than a bakery. It's an attitude. Whenever life starts to get a bit overwhelming,
I just tell myself, "It's no big whoop." Trust me, it works!
I love what I do, and it makes me happy to bring a smile
to your face, whether you're enjoying my whoopie pies
at your favorite coffee shop, receiving them as a gift,
or ordering them for your special occasions.
