Who We Are
Whisked! is a DC-based bakery serving handcrafted pies, cookies, and quiches with classic recipes, creative seasonal twists, and a homemade flavor. We allow each season to naturally guide our menu, so you get the freshest ingredients year-round and an opportunity to celebrate the unique tastes of spring, summer, and fall.
Our signature pies run the gamut from Classic Apple and Strawberry Rhubarb, to Chocolate Pumpkin Swirl and Bourbon Pecan. Our quiches go beyond the standard quiche Lorraine, featuring fresh local produce like kale, zucchini, garlic scapes, and tomatoes. Our cookie lineup pleases all year with flavors like our best selling Salty Oatmeal, and classic Snickerdoodle. All our products are handmade from scratch, with as many locally-sourced ingredients as possible, by our 6-person team in the Trinidad neighborhood of Northeast DC.
Since its founding in 2011, Whisked! has grown into a beloved DC institution. You can find our products at local farmers markets, grocery stores, and specialty shops throughout the city. And now, you can get a taste of Whisked! no matter where you live in the US by ordering online. We hope you enjoy our baked goods as much as we enjoy making them for you!
What We Believe
It’s simple: we want you to spend more time savoring the sweet moments. Life moves fast in the city, but a good meal with good people always helps us slow down. That’s why we spend every day in the kitchen preparing fresh, handmade products that have the comforting power of a homemade baked good. Let us do the hard work so you can enjoy the company of those you love. With our help, you can stay in the moment (not in the kitchen).
How We Got Started
Jenna, the founder of Whisked!, is originally from Eugene, Oregon. Jenna has always been a passionate baker, spending hours making cakes for her college committee meetings at the University of Washington and baking through almost every recipe in Rose Levy Beranbaum’s The Bread Bible. In 2005, Jenna moved to Washington DC and never looked back. After a few years spent getting to know the city and falling in love with the up-and-coming DC food scene, Jenna started ModernDomestic in 2008; a blog about baking and pastry, which quickly became a local hit. On the blog, Jenna discussed the science of baking, shared favorite recipes, and interviewed DC-area pastry chefs. In 2010 she decided to follow her passion and quit her full-time job to become a baker at Treet, an online bakery. She worked at several other area food businesses, including Soupergirl, The Big Cheese Truck, and Spilled Milk Catering, to learn the ropes before launching Whisked! in 2011. The influence of Jenna’s enterprising spirit and love of homemade baked goods on Whisked! products is unmistakable. We don’t take shortcuts, ensuring every pie, cookie, and quiche is made with the same attention as if you were baking in your own home.
