Blissful Whisk pastry shop to open this spring
Restaurants & RetailFebruary 14th, 2019
With a teaching kitchen and rustic country space for customers to enjoy high tea, Blissful Whisk LLC bakery will have the kind of cozy atmosphere baker and owner Tiffany Cable says her kids had in the kitchen growing up. At the bakery, which is scheduled to open the first week of May, scones, cookies and cinnamon rolls, all baked by Cable, will fill up the menu.
Blissful Whisk’s specialty will be Palmier cookies, which are sliced from a folded, French pastry and baked into heart-shaped, crisp cookies.
Cable also plans to offer lunch options, coffee, tea, and potentially gluten-free items from outside sources.
High tea will include several courses under a single fee and can be a festive way to celebrate birthdays and other occasions, Cable says.
The bakery will occupy 2,600 square feet of space at 1612 N. Baker. Spokane-based Baker Construction & Development Inc. began building Blissful Whisk from the ground up last July.
Three to four employees will work there, and Cable says she might hire another baker, depending on demand.
A corner area with a play kitchen will be designed to keep kids entertained, and Cable will offer afterschool programs to teach basic baking skills to elementary school-aged children.
Cable previously owned Ace Production Technologies, a Spokane-based robotics company, with her family. The family sold Ace Production in 2016.
She says the current business pursuit was born purely out of her own passion. After attending culinary school at Spokane Community College and sending her children away to college, Cable wanted to create a comfortable space for people to hang out, she says.
Cable, who sends her own college kids care packages laden with treats, says Blissful Whisk will offer a subscription service, which other parents can sign up to send treats to their kids who are off at college.
