I often say I want to open a boutique and it is when I hear stories like this one that the vision becomes clearer.  Jenna Huntsberger (Modern Domestic food blog) and Stephanie Willis (Adventures in Shaw blog) turned their love of baked goods into Whisked! Whisked! is the marriage of northern style and southern charm baked goods.  Jenna (*Pacific Northwest native) and Stephanie (*Southern native) first met when Jenna volunteered to bake and help out at the 2009 Food Bloggers Spooktacular Bake Sale.  The two kept in touch and realized they shared the love of baking American classics with modern tastes.  It’s no surprise that when the opportunity arose for them to share a booth at the 14th & U Street market, they came together and created Whisked!

At a recent media preview event, I had the opportunity to taste the treats that are consistently tweeted about in my Saturday morning timeline.  All the buzz is true, this is good stuff.  The fruit pies were my absolute favorite: seasonal fruit pies currently filled with strawberry rhubarb. Amazing.  The strawberry rhubarb reminds me of the fresh strawberry preserves that my aunt would make straight from farm to table.  I could have had ten of these alongside the deep mint chocolate “Grasshopper Bars”, a couple slices of the light as a feather red velvet cake and about 10 of the chocolate chip cookies.  Unusual for a person that does not fancy sweets, which if nothing else, speaks volumes on how I feel about this new baking station.

Unfortunately for me, the goodies are sold at the 14th and U street farmers market, which I can never get myself together in time for on a Saturday morning.  Lucky for me, however, the treats can be ordered online here.  Whisked! might actually get me to convert to being a sweets lover.  Who would’ve thought??…
