|My daughter meeting Heather Baird|
My oldest daughter and I met the charming Heather Baird at East Tennessee's Biggest Bake Sale. Her SprinkleBakes booth was festive, sprinkled with plenty of pink and flavored with gourmet icing samples. Baird is clearly an artist who considers food her creative palette.
"I'm in love with this medium," Baird declared with unabashed enthusiasm as we mingled with guests at the community event. Baird already had experience with classical painting and curating. Then she took her creativity into the kitchen. Colors, textures and brush strokes all translated from one medium to the next. Her confectionery designs were so pretty, that demand quickly grew for her blog and cookbook.

Baird let my daughter help her use balloons to make cute little chocolate bowls. She shares details about all sorts of baking techniques in the cookbook she gifted our family. The chapters are organized according to artistic elements, with perfectly illustrated instructions. I'm hoping to find time in the kitchen with both of my daughters to make holiday memories while trying some of Baird's techniques.
