Salt Lake City, October 4 — West Elm and Craft Lake City present the November Cake Decorating Workshop with Megan Whittaker of Noisette. The workshop will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3, at West Elm City Creek from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Specializing in French macarons, Megan Whittaker has a sharp eye for color and beauty. After attending culinary school, Whittaker started Noisette in 2011 to peddle her sweets to a wider audience. Little did she know, Noisette would become one of Craft Lake City’s most beloved craft sweets vendors. Dedicated to baking with high quality and all-natural ingredients, Noisette is truly a special indulgence.
“This workshop is designed to be an introduction to the very basics of cake decorating,1” 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!”
