Saturday Market May 26 – Decorating Basics

We eat with our eyes first.

Whether you’re making dessert for a party, or meatloaf cupcakes for an appetizer, appearances set our expectations for a meal. It can be a simple process to add a bit of flare to your dish, and your loved ones will be excited to dig in!

Doubt it? Add a sprig of parsley to the edge of a bowl of mac and cheese and watch the comments roll in…

I’m once again out of town this weekend (this time for work this time, well rested from the long weekend!), so Kat is going to be chatting with you on Saturday. She is the proud operator of the Sweet Shoppe, custom desserts for special occasions (when she has time!). She’s going to be walking you through the basics of decorating with buttercream icing.

Not into sweets? The same techniques can also be used for savoury recipes like hummus and thick dips! Keep it in mind for your next round of appetizers for a potluck, like mini meatloaf cupcakes with piped mashed potatoes!


This event is part of a full lineup of Workshops and Show & Tell events throughout the Market Season. Get connected on your favourite social media network, or sign up for our email community to stay in the loop for the workshops you’re looking forward to. We’ll be posting the edited videos and key takeaways after each event, so if you miss the chance to be here in person, you can still gain the knowledge!

Bring (or submit) your questions, bring your tools, and we’ll give you our recommendations! The live feed will be on Facebook through the event and our business page, and we’ll update this post afterwards with the video feed.
