The Twinkie is alive and well with this homemade Twinkie recipe, courtesy of Macy's.

Pastry aficionados the world over cried foul when it was announced that Hostess, maker of the ubiquitous Twinkie declared that they were going out of business. Regardless of what fate waits for the world famous spongy pastry, you can follow these steps and have homemade Twinkies in the comfort of your own home. Or, better yet, at a friend's home where they'll have to worry about the cleanup.

The recipe itself is actually a pretty straight forward 13-step process and doesn't take too much time per batch to make. The only thing missing will be the individual plastic wrap over each one. You're on your own if you want the fully authentic, individually wrapped Twinkie experience.
