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.
