Welcome to my world of nonpareils! I created this blog to share my adventures in baking and sugar craft. Feel free to leave a comment. I'd love to hear your thoughts, ideas and suggestions! I have always been fond of that sweet, usually last course of a meal, but I wasn't always a baker and dessert maker. For years, I was an aspiring painter. Most of my employed life has been spent working in galleries for local artisans. I still paint, but I have found a new joy in the art of baking and sugar craft. I try my best to assemble delightful desserts that are as artful as they are delicious.
In short, Sprinkle Bakes is about making dessert beautiful. Here you will find a collection of recipes for all varieties of sweet treats. You'll also find tutorials, step-by-step instructions and recipes for novice bakers. I do prefer made-from-scratch recipes, but would never criticize anyone for using a box mix. I think they make nice shortcuts and do use them myself.
Maybe it's the kid inside me that never went out, or the kid outside me that never went in. However you want to look at it, I love sprinkles of any kind. They are joyful, colorful, interesting, special. And concerning dessert, that's just how I like it.
