Whisk opened on November 10, 2012 to sell-out crowds. The build-out process was as green as possible, including purchasing used appliances, using low-VOC paints and finishes, re-purposing wood and materials for decor and recycling as much as possible.
About the Owner- Whisk: a Sustainable Bakeshop began as Farm Fresh Cupcakes in 2011, when Kaylen Wissinger realized that there was amazing produce available in the Saint Louis area, and that it needed to be in cupcake form. She took her cupcakes to the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market on a wing and a prayer and people came every week to try flavors like strawberry rhubarb, zucchini spice, sweet potato and purple velvet. After a successful first season, she was offered a position as the resident baker at Local Harvest Cafe, where she continued to (literally) hone her skills and spend hours in the kitchen. In spring of 2012, Kaylen’s dreams became a reality when she signed a lease on a storefront space at 2201 Cherokee Street.
