    The downtown to-do will feature yum stuff to eat, yes, but also workshops on how to photograph yum stuff, too. The date is Saturday, June 17.

    There's a fairly solid chance that, at some point in your past, you snapped a photograph of a dessert.

    It might have been a niece's 1st birthday cake, or the very first baked Alaska you attempted, or the 12-scoop sundae served at your 21st birthday. Wherever and whatever it was, you likely found yourself reaching for your camera, wanting to document the fudge-covered, cherries-topped moment.

    This is one of the offbeat dimensions of Dessert Goals, a new treat-oriented one-day festival headed for downtown in June. The gathering is about gooey, pudding-esque, cupcake-rich tastes and treats, yes, as dessert-themed festivals tend to be. 

    But there are workshops, too, and they don't detail the best way to spoon a heaping glob of vanilla ripple into your mouth (we all have that technique pretty well down). 

    You can sign up to learn the best ways to photograph a towering piece of pink cake or bowl of rice pudding, and hear from "top experts in the dessert and social space" about presenting snapshots of sweets in the best light.

    A ticket to these learn-more seminars? It's separate from admission, but does include your entry to Dessert Goals.

    If a workshop isn't your cup of tapioca, but simply trying out what's there to eat, you can expect purveyors of goodies like Coolhaus and The Pudding Truck to be scooping/serving attendees.

    Where's all of this delectableness flowering on the final Saturday of springtime? The Cooper Design Space in downtown Los Angeles.
