Inside Look: Whipped Bakeshop, Deliciously Pretty Sweets

What do you do with a degree in art and a passion for baking? If you’re Zoë Lukas, you open Whipped Bakeshop. The Fishtown dessert house has been open in its retail location on Belgrade Street since 2009, and has been thriving ever since, thanks to Lukas’ sugar prowess, a team of talented workers (most of whom also hold art degrees) and a business plan from Zoë’s husband and co-owner, Brennan.

A case full of treats meets walk-in customers, complete with several types of cupcakes and the ultra-popular Sasquatch Brownie, along with coffee from local roaster ReAnimator. But it’s the catering side where Lukas’ artistic eye really shines, as she produces a steady stream of eye-catching cookies and cakes for custom events. Check out a slideshow of some recent gorgeous work - including cookies made for Twitter and shipped all the way to California - along with a few pics of decadent behind-the-scenes action.
