It’s Here! The SprinkleBakes Book.

Today’s the day! 

It’s the official publication day for the SprinkleBakes book! I’m so excited and more than a little nervous! Every other post on my blog will feature a recipe, but today I wanted to tell you a little bit about what I’ve been pouring so much love and work into over the past year.  I really hope it lives up to everything you’d expect – your encouragement from the very start of this blog has meant so much to me and has made this day possible.

Hopefully this will answer your burning questions: inside you’ll find 77 recipes. Of those, 36 are basics that every baker and dessert enthusiast will want in their recipe arsenal.This section is called “Blank Canvases” because these recipes can be endlessly varied with flavor, color and shape. I return to these simple and approachable basics again and again. Use them to create a confectionery work of art, or just to satisfy a craving!

I’ve said before that this is an art-meets-baking book, but what does that mean? The creative recipes in this book are listed under chapters called Line, Sculpture, Color, and Mixed Media. Preceding the recipes in each of these sections you’ll find – art lessons!  From brush primers to sculptural cake carving instructions, this book teaches you how to think like an artist. A few recipes are elaborate, but many are easy to make, and I give plenty of templates.

At heart, this book is about taking the things in life that inspire you, and recreating them in your baking. It’s about making the most of your time in the kitchen and being able to share something delicious and memorable with those you love.

Spring time inspires me, waking up to a beautiful Melbourne morning, wandering into the kitchen with a pantry full of ingredients, ready to bake a feast of cupcakes and sweets for my sweetest friends 🙂 love them to bits… although i love cake just as much xoxo

My sister inspires me. She is a single mom to two (amazing) kids, she works part time, and is going to school full time for nursing. The obstacles she has overcome, the strong faith she has, plus the love and compassion inspires me to be a better person and to always go for my dreams.

Inspiration for me comes from almost anything – shoes, a pretty dress, fresh produce, seeing beautiful images in magazines.

The Norwegian nature inspires me, especially now when its spring. I love how the flowers have so many clear, beautiful colors, the green grass and all the animals coming. Butterflies, birds and bugs.

There is nothing like seeing your hard work and dedication and TIME turn into to a beautiful creation…like a perfectly baked cake or the worlds perfect French Macaron. I think I must have been a baker or chef in a previous life because the very though of whipping something up gives me so much joy and inspiration! I love all your creations and they have inspired in so many ways. melimendoza2008@gmail.com

Congratulations to your new book! It's awesome and I will post about it on Facebook. I think there are a lot of bakers out there waiting for a book like yours.

I'm mostly inspired by the farmers market. Fruits and vegetables of the season, dairy products of the region and of course food blogs providing beautiful pictures of food and awesome ideas.

My biggest inspiration would have to be Christopher Nolan, director of Inception, Batman trilogy starring Christian Bale, The Prestige, Memento, etc. He directs so well, with such deep meaning instilled in each movie. There is such a unity of plot, where everything make sense when all the pieces are put together, and one cannot be bored of his movies, because they engage you so well 🙂 Creative, psychologically challenging, leaving you questioning until the very last minute, and such a great cast in each movie, Chris Nolan's movie are the perfection of our era 🙂

Congratulations!!! Will help to spread the word.

My inspiration comes from my mom…the original Martha S. Like sooo many women of that generation, mom cooked, cleaned, painted, wallpapered, sewed my clothes and all the curtains in our home, gardened….and she considered all of it an art.

Nature inspires me, from the earthy tones of the forest to the vibrant shades of a butterfly, to the cooling shimmers of a misted day and the warming glow of sunshine on bare skin… as well as food blogs of course!

I think the simple things like flour, baking powder, baking soda, fondant, bananas, chocolate, mint leaves… things like that inspire me to create interesting, simple baking that makes my family and friends happy. Baking is a metaphor for the challenges we face in life, and sometimes it is what gets me through when all else fails to go right.

Music inspires me! I always put some music on while cooking, baking or just generally creating things 🙂

Also- Anything colorful! It can be an amazing sky at sunset, a field full of flowers or something man-made like balloons…

Congratulations on your book! I'm sure it's very exciting!!
