I first discovered Heather Baird's blog a couple of years ago, and have been a loyal fan of her work. Her photography is testament that she is, in fact, an artist. Each recipe is a work of art. The color, the perfection, the food styling, the lighting-- I admire each recipe. Most times, I savor looking at the pictures, but know that I most likely won't be making it. I say this, because she is such a Diva, in my eyes-- in a very good way. I bought Heather's book, because I wanted to take my time...more
This is an all-around excellent dessert cookbook. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys baking. Baird combines her artistic abilities with creativity and her love of baking. She offers clear instructions and beautiful pictures to accompany the recipes, and her step-by-step instructions make me feel like even I could create something beautiful and delicious. The book offers a variety of desserts. Some are quick fixes, while others will take more time and preparation. However, all of the recip...more
I haven't tried anything out yet, but everything looks pretty and delicious! I've done a few recipes from her blog, and it's by far my favourite for desserts. I kept meaning to buy this online, and then I saw it in the grocery store. Hooray!

The Sprinkle Bakes Cookbook–Sprinkle Bakes: Dessert Recipes to Inspire Your Inner Artist–marks one of the most important dessert-based cookbooks for any chef’s culinary repertoire that will come out this year. Written by Heather Baird of the Sprinkle Bakes blog, this dessert-specific cookbook offers an unique way to perceive baking: baking as art. Not just the fact that different kinds of frostings can be pretty, cookies can be cut into fun shapes, and Jello can be molded, but the idea that baki...more

Awesome came out great and even if you do not make the entire cake make the icing. It is soooooooooooo GOOD! I have never had molasses icing before it is one of those OMG moments. I have not cut the cake yet, it's for a baby shower so I decorated with baby feet on top, not covering the entire top so the cookie dough can show through and used the leftover cake (made crumbs) from evening it out to coat the bottom half. It looks great can't wait for the applause! LOL

Lovely photographs but most of the actual recipes didn't jump out at me.

I love your recipe Lemony Rainbow Checkerboard Cake. You are a wonderful pastry
Heather is obviously an artist. As soon as you flip open her cookbook, you can tell that.

Her recipes are beautiful. Visually pleasing while also being delicious.

While her treats may look extremely hard, they are not. Heather gives you a simple step by step to achieve her product.

Her recipes are unique and impressive. And yes, again, delicious.

The instructions are all so easy to follow plus the photos are quite enticing :)
I've tried the Matcha Cheesecake for my birthday and it was as wonderfully tasting as I've imagined.
Looking forward to trying out the rest of the recipes.
Thank yoou for sharing your recipes with us.
A really great cookbook. I love the diversity of recipes, and how there is one great recipe per item. A must have for any baker, and can fit needs for a newer baker or experienced hand.
Beautiful photos of luscious looking desserts. Book also has clear, basic instructions as well as directions for beyond the norm concoctions. Can't wait to try some.
Eh- I'm a home baker, not an artist. I really want my baked goods to taste good, not so worried about them being beautiful. Fun to look through, though!
Don't have the talent or the time to tackle any of the recipes but I enjoyed looking at the pictures. I did pick up a few useful baking tips.
I love this book. Made 3 recipes from it and had to start jogging again.
Great photos. good ideas, but the recipes are nothing new
