 Whisk Bakery is located on 216 S Main St, downtown Wauconda. The hidden bakery, founded in 2014, has a lot to offer with the cozy small town feel the second you walk in, wrapping you in the warm scent of baked goods and a cozy home-like atmosphere. They are welcoming and claim that “whether you are walking in our doors to cozy up with the wifi, gathering with friends, or grabbing something to go, we look forward to being a part of your day, and to you being a part of ours!” There is also a big variety of treats and drinks to get. 

 If you take a look at their website, you can scroll endlessly on creative, decorated baked goods like cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and innovative, artsy designed pastries. Whisk has pretty flexible hours of Tuesday 7:30am-4:00pm, Wednesday-Friday 7:30am-5:00pm, and Saturday-Sunday 8:00am-1:00pm which are all good hours for students who want a sweet treat after school, or during open campus for upperclassmen. 

 I personally tried a snickerdoodle bar, and a cake pop. The snickerdoodle bar was to die for and I wanted another one the second I finished, meanwhile the cake pop was not to my taste, being a bit too hard to bite into and not tasting the greatest, but overall if you go to a bakery there might not be something for everyone. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family, and go back to  try something new.
