Here be the Whisk Independent Declaration of Baked Goods:

We hold these truths to be self-evident - local ingredients, seasonality and the pursuit of deliciousness. To prove this, let these facts be submitted to a candid world.

We believe in hand-mixed brownies. Kuva Coffee. Supporting our friends and family in their creative pursuits. Fresh ingredients. Hand-blended teas by the ReTrailer. Graciousness to every customer. Mila Sweets. Laughing at work. The Tower Grove Farmers' Market. An ice pop enjoyed on the sidewalk on a hot summer's day. Millie the Mixers. The smell of cookies in the oven. Homemade crystallized ginger. The pursuit of creativity at any cost. Double Star Farms. Fresh-picked blueberries. Riding bikes to work. Farm Fresh Dairy. A shared piece of pie on a first date. Bacon chocolate chip sea salt cookies. Late-night dance parties in the kitchen. Our incredible support system. Todd Geisert and his piggies. The changing of the seasons. Deliciousness. Smiles. Watermelons (with the seeds!). Baking seasonally. Trying new things. Rolling hundreds of cake balls. Supporting the other small businesses on Cherokee Street. Enjoying our fair city of Saint Louis. Strawberries from nearby farms. Shop deliveries of gluten-free flour from Meister's. Hand-mixed French macarons. Inspiration boards. Paying tribute to those who inspired us. Board games. Fresh-ground spices. A cake to enjoy with family. Tea parties. And lastly, that a cupcake enjoyed with a mug of hot cocoa is indeed a balanced breakfast. 

We, therefore, the representatives of Whisk: a Sustainable Bakeshop, do solemnly publish and declare that these are our beliefs, and this is our promise. And for the support of this declaration, we mutually pledge to each other (and YOU!) our talent, our creativity, and our splendid baked goods.
