Visit The Thirsty Whale, A Holidazzle Staple With Incredible Sweet Treats


The Thirsty Whale was once an up-start bakery giving Holidazzle a try in 2016. They’ve since opened their own brick-and-morter, have become a force in the Twin Cities baking community and became an absolute fan-favorite on the Holidazzle scene.

Now, they’re back for another round of holiday cheer in 2018.

“We love what we do,” The Thirsty Whale business manager Jen Lehman said. “We try to make that obvious in the way we run our business.”

Megan (creative genius and decorator) and Kyle met while working at another bakery, and when that company went out of business they decided to open up their own. Holidazzle has a special connection for both of them, as they became engaged on site at Holidazzle in 2017.

After attending culinary school in Minneapolis, Megan has been working as a pastry chef and decorator for several years. Since her dreams of one day owning her own bakery took flight in 2016, their business has been driven mostly by Megan’s beautiful custom cakes.

This Holidazzle, The Thirsty Whale will be featuring several different holiday cookies, and plenty of adorably decorated treats.You can find them at Holidazzle throughout the event’s full run: Thursdays through Sundays from Friday, November 23 through Sunday, December 23. It is open Thursdays from 5-9 pm, Fridays from 5-10 pm, Saturdays from 11 am-10 pm and Sundays from 11 am-7 pm.

“It seems like our ‘Minnesota Nice’ attitudes become even more obvious around the holidays and it’s great to see everyone so warm, selfless, and appreciative,” she said.

Megan and the team are looking forward to meeting new people and spreading lots of cheer throughout their time at Holidazzle.

“Our goal is for our customers to not only be impressed with our products, but also with the way we treat them and the way we present ourselves,” Megan said.
