The cake part of the Whoopie  pie is pumpkin a perfect fall flavor :) and I made a cream cheese frosting with just a hint of cinnamon as the filling.  To get the football shape I used a mini Easter egg pan.  You could also just pipe out your batter into the football shape.

 

*also note to get a more brown cake for the footballs I added some brown food coloring paste to the cake batter*
