Salt Lake City, May 1 — West Elm and Craft Lake City present the June Cake Decorating Workshop with Megan Whittaker of Noisette. The workshop will be held on Thursday, June 1, at West Elm City Creek from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Megan Whittaker of Noisette, returning for her fourth workshop with Craft Lake City, has a sharp eye for color and beauty. In 2011, After attending culinary school, Whittaker started Noisette to sell her small delicious delicacies to the Salt Lake Valley. Little did she know that Noisette would become one of Craft Lake City’s most beloved craft sweets vendors. Dedicated to baking with high-quality, all-natural ingredients and an emphasis on beauty and aesthetic, Noisette is truly a special indulgence.

“This workshop is designed to be an introduction to the very basics of cake decorating,” says Whittaker. “We will be learning how to trim, fill, crumb coat, and cover a small cake with buttercream, as well as learning some basic piping techniques. It’s a great beginning class and lots of fun to do with friends!”
