Whisk: A Sustainable Bakeshop opens tomorrow, November 10, at 2201 Cherokee Street. This is the building at the corner of Cherokee and Missouri Avenue, east of Jefferson, that was previously home to the Shangri-La Diner.
Whisk is the new project from Kaylen Wissinger, whose Farm Fresh Cupcakes began appearing at local farmers' markets in the spring of 2011. (Wissinger has also contributed to Gut Check.)
Whisk will feature more than cupcakes. In an email announcing the opening, Wissinger promises "a variety of cupcakes, scones, muffins, French macarons, quickbreads, slices of cake, handpies, cake balls, ice pops, quiche, cookies and MORE each day...."
Gut Check will have a more extensive First Look at Whisk in the coming weeks.
